Two marvelous women-centric films took home the Best Picture Awards in Drama and Musical/Comedy categories at the 75th Golden Globes which was held at Beverly Hills, California, on Sunday night.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, won awards for Best Motion Picture, Drama, and its lead actor, Frances McDormand won the award for the Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama. Actress-turned-filmmaker Greta Gerwig’s Ladybird won the awards for the Best Musical/Comedy, and its lead actor Saoirse Ronan won the best actress award in that category.

McDorman’s Mildred Hyes is a mother fighting alone to avenge the rape and death of her teenage daughter in Three Billboards. Ladybird narrates the coming-of-age story of a girl in small-town Sacramento; a girlhood to numerous boyhood stories film industries across the world have produced in the past. Big Little Lies, the HBO series about women in a posh California community, won the award for Best Television Limited Series. Nicole Kidman won the award for her brilliant performance as a survivor of domestic abuse. In her acceptance speech, Kidman dedicated her win to the “power of women.”

This year, the glitz of Golden Globes’ red carpet was overshadowed by the powerful Time’s Up movement which was initiated to fight sexual harassment in and outside of Hollywood.

Several prominent celebrities, including Meryl Streep, Reese Witherspoon, Salma Hayek and Viola Davis, came dressed in black on the red carpet. The event saw the guests as well as the host, Seth Meyers, invoking the ongoing controversy over sexual harassers like Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey, generously. “Good evening ladies and remaining gentlemen,” was how Meyers began his monologue.

Oprah Winfrey, who received the Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement, praised women who daringly came forward with their #MeToo stories of sexual harassment in 2017. “For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dared to speak the truth to the power of those men. But their time is up. Their time is up,” she said.
