Sandra Oh's Emotional Tribute to the 'Faces of Change — Golden Globes

In times of increasing inclusivity in Hollywood, actress Sandra Oh made history by becoming the first Asian host of the Golden Globe Awards and the first woman of Asian descent to win multiple Golden Globes.

The show provided lots of laughs too, as when Christian Bale, who played former Vice President Dick Cheney in Vice, accepted the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy.

"What do you think?"

"That's unbelievable. I'm just so grateful", said Farrelly in his acceptance speech.

The film, which Rotten Tomatoes critics rated 81 percent Fresh for taking "audiences on a surprisingly smooth ride through potentially bumpy subject matter" (namely, racism), also raked in top honors best comedy or musical film and best screenplay.

From "roasting" the vast talent of Amy Adams - who has two Golden Globe nominations for her work on Sharp Objects and Vice - to simply calling Michael B. Jordan "hot", it was a much different approach to previous award show monologues. One of the shocking wins was of Bohemian Rhapsody who bagged the trophy for Best Motion Picture - Drama.

The show's hosts, Oh and Samberg, mostly avoided politics in their opening comments.

The awards featured a number of surprises, with many wins going to Netflix films and TV series, adding to the streaming service's rising reputation as a major awards powerhouse. "My reaction [when I found out we would be hosting together] was, 'Is this a joke?' And then when it was not a joke, it was just this feeling of terror and thrill", she said.

Glenn Close took home best actress in a drama for her performance in The Wife, the story of a woman who has secretly ghost-written her Pulitzer-prize winning husband's novels.

Sandra Oh, originally from Nepean, has won the Golden Globe for best actress in a television drama for her starring role in cat-and-mouse thriller Killing Eve. Only a handful of decisions taken by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the voting body made up of foreign journalists living in Los Angeles, were as expected. Cuaron still won as best director and the Mexican-born filmmaker's movie won best foreign language film. Since many of us can't be bothered with the awards anyway (especially when numerous shows aren't aired locally yet), we thought it'd be more entertaining to focus on the amusing stuffs instead. "I'd like to thank my mother and my father".
