At the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards, we saw some big names taking home some prestigious awards -- Rami Malek won the Best Actor, Mahershala Ali got his globe for the Best Actor in a supporting role and Alfonso Cuarón prevailed as the best director. However, the night was filled with some surprises too. So, let's see who were the others that won big at this star-studded night.
Everyone thought that it will be 'A Star Is Born’ taking the win for the best film of the year. But, surprising everyone, the story of the music legend Freddie Mercury, 'Bohemian Rhapsody' was named as the best drama film of 2018.
Leaving behind the films like Crazy Rich Asians, The Favourite, Mary Poppins Returns and Vice, Peter Farrelly directed period piece 'Green Book' took a globe home for its stellar story of friendship between Don Shirley and Tony Vallelonga.
From fake teeth to a special movement coach, Rami Malek had gone to every length and breadth to transform himself into Freddie Mercury. This has paid well--and how! As the actor received his Golden Globe, he remembered the late music sensation as an absolute legend and inspiring in many ways.
Christian Bale got the second Golden Globe of his career as he played Dick Cheney in the political biopic 'Vice'.
Beating the audience favourite Lady Gaga for 'A Star Is Born', Glenn Close won her third Golden Globe award for playing an intellectual, graceful wife of an American novelist in 'The Wife'
The category saw strong competition with names such as Emily Blunt (Mary Poppins Returns), Elsie Fisher (Eighth Grade), Charlize Theron (Tully), Constance Wu (Crazy Rich Asians). But, Olivia Colman's performance as the ailing Queen Anne in 'The Favourite' overshadowed all.
The Academy Award winner, Mahershala Ali finally got a much-awaited Golden Globe award for his charismatic role of a black pianist in 'Green Book'. He was earlier nominated in this category in 2016 for 'Moonlight'.
Regina King took her yellow metal home for her role as Sharon Rivers in 'If Beale Street Could Talk'. The category also saw nominees like Amy Adams, Claire Foy, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz.
The well-decorated Mexican director, Alfonso Cuaron once again proved his mettle as he rocked the stage with the Best Director award in his hand for the movie 'Roma'.
The category comprised some of the year’s biggest blockbusters such as Incredibles 2, Isle of Dogs, Mirai, Ralph Breaks the Internet and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. But, the fresh story of Spider-Man hooked the jury and filled its cart with a Golden Globe with ease!
The writer trio Brian Hayes Currie, Peter Farrelly and Nick Vallelonga received the award for their well-detailed comedy-drama 'Green Book' which is set in 1962 with a black pianist as its protagonist.
Justin Hurwitz was handed a Golden Globe for his path-breaking score for the movie First Man, which tells the story of Neil Armstrong.
Finally, A Star Is Born got its due as the jury named "Shallow" as the best original song of the year.
