The 75th Golden Globe Awards honored the best TV and movies of 2017, with winners including Big Little LiesThe Shape of Water, 3 Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and many more.

Find the full list of winners here.


1. THE RED CARPET TURNS BLACK

In order to show support for the Time’s Up initiative—a legal defense fund organized by some of the most prominent women in Hollywood to provide subsidized legal support to those who have experienced sexual harassment, assault, or abuse in the workplace—celebrities vowed to wear all black on the red carpet.

Some of Hollywood’s most high-profile women brought social justice activists as their dates.

Some of the stars watching at home showed their support in all-black outfits as well.


2. OPRAH FOR PRESIDENT

The night was full of female empowerment messages during speeches, but none was as fired up as Oprah’s impassioned Cecil B. DeMille Award acceptance speech.

The goosebump-inducing moment was followed by the directing award, which Natalie Portman noted wasn’t quite that diverse of a category.

Earlier in the night, Seth Meyers had joked that she should run for president.


3. SHORTER SPEECHES

While plenty of women winners were given ample time to talk, the producers started cutting off speeches in the first hour of the night.


4. PERFECT PAIRINGS

The duos who presented awards together were truly inspired.


5. BEHIND-THE-SCENES SECRETS

Some of the most fun moments of the night happened behind the scenes. This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman revealed that Tom Hanks got a tray of martinis for his table.

The Disaster Artist author Greg Sestero, who starred in The Room and wrote the book on which James Franco’s movie was based, shared the way he and The Room star Tommy Wiseau got to the Globes.
