'Moonlight,' 'La La Land' tops at Globes

The 74th Golden Globes, held at the Beverly Hilton, featured wins by the films La La Land and the LGBT-themed Moonlight.

La La Land, the musical that's a love letter to Hollywood, broke a Golden Globes record with seven wins ( out of seven nominations ), including best picture in the comedy or musical category, best director for Damien Chazelle, best actor in a comedy or musical ( Ryan Gosling ) and best actress in a comedy or musical ( Emma Stone ).

Moonlight—about a gay Black boy in a tough Miami neighborhood—had six nods and took home the award for best picture in the dramatic category. Mahershala Ali was expected to win for Moonlight ( in the supporting actor category ), but was upset by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who's in Nocturnal Animals ( helmed by out director Tom Ford ).

On the TV side, The Night Manager won three, and The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story won two. With the latter, actress Sarah Paulson (who is partnered with Holland Taylor) won the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for her portrayal of attorney Marcia Clark. The miniseries also won for Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, with producer Nina Jacobson accepting the award and thanking her wife, among others.

Politics also took center spot at the Globes, thanks primarily to the speech of Meryl Streep, who received the Cecil B. DeMille Award ( and has received 30 Golden Globe nominations ). Streep didn't talk much about her career; instead, she spent much of her allotted time criticizing President-elect Donald Trump, saying in part, " There was one performance this year that stunned me. ... It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter—someone he outranked in privilege, power and the capacity to fight back. It kind of broke my heart when I saw it."

Responding on Twitter, Trump called Streep "overrated" and "a Hillary flunky who lost big."

Jimmy Fallon hosted the awards ceremony ( at one point, calling the Globes "one of the few places left where America still honors the popular vote" ), debuting to mixed reviews.
