Golden Globes 2017: La La Land sweeps awards

Hollywood musical La La Land has broken the record for the most Golden Globe Awards, winning seven prizes.

It won every award it was nominated for – including best musical or comedy film, best director, screenplay, score and song.

Its stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling also won in the acting categories.

The Globes are seen as pointers to the Oscars. Moonlight was named best drama film, while Casey Affleck and Isabelle Huppert won other acting prizes.

British actors also enjoyed a golden night in the TV categories, with prizes for The Night Manager and The Crown.

Affleck was named best actor in a film drama for his role in Manchester By The Sea and French star Huppert was the surprise winner of the award for best film drama actress.

Her performance in thriller Elle – which was also named best foreign language film – beat contenders including Natalie Portman, who had been considered the favourite for playing Jackie Kennedy in Jackie.

Viola Davis was named best supporting film actress for playing a woman in 1950s Pittsburgh in Fences – a role she first played on Broadway six years ago.

The movie is an adaptation of the August Wilson play, which explores race relations in post-war America.

Accepting the award, Davis said: “It’s not every day that Hollywood thinks of translating a play to screen – it doesn’t scream ‘moneymaker’. But it does scream art, and it does scream heart.”

In a surprise result, British actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson was named best supporting actor for his role in Nocturnal Animals – a prize that had been widely expected to go to Mahershala Ali for Moonlight.

Zootopia was named best animated feature film at Sunday’s ceremony, which was hosted by Jimmy Fallon.

The comedian’s opening monologue was less risque than those of some of his predecessors, but he still found time to make light of the divisive year in US politics.

The talk show host joked that the Golden Globes ceremony was “one of the few places left where America still honours the popular vote” – a reference to Donald Trump beating Hillary Clinton in the recent US election despite getting fewer votes overall.

He also described grief-stricken film Manchester By The Sea as “the only thing more depressing than 2016”.

The ceremony featured several references to Mr Trump – not least when Meryl Streep launched an attack on the US President-elect while accepting the Cecil B Demille award for outstanding contribution to entertainment.

Streep referred to Trump’s mocking of a disabled reporter and said: “Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others we all lose.”

There were several British triumphs in the television categories, including wins for Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie and Olivia Colman for The Night Manager.

Claire Foy also won best actress in a television series for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II in Netflix’s The Crown.

The Golden Globe Awards, which are run by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, honour the best in TV and film from the past year.
