Charlize Theron Golden Globes 2019

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.

Vice, which lead with six nominations, only managed to go home with a best actor in a musical or comedy, for Christian Bale.

The film was also accused of downplaying the queer side of Freddie Mercury's life, as well as his racial background and experience, in order to focus on things like how Brian May came up with clapping on "We Will Rock You".

"The Americans", the FX series about Russian spies posing as a married couple in suburban Washington, won best TV drama.

Green Book's Mahershala Ali, who plays African-American pianist Dr Don Shirley who confronts racism while performing in America's Deep South in 1962, claimed the supporting actor Globe.

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

Though the Globes are put on by foreign journalists, they don't including foreign language films in their two best picture categories (for drama and musical/comedy).

Cincinnati Bengals part company with head coach Marvin Lewis
From 2011 to 2015 the team won more regular season games than any five-year span in the history of the franchise. Denver's first consecutive losing seasons since 1971-72 saw Vance Joseph's time in charge come to an end.

'Once in a lifetime': Williams v Federer for the Hopman Cup
The original " Battle of the Sexes " saw Billie Jean King beat Bobby Riggs in an exhibition singles match in 1973. The 20-time Grand Slam champion moved around the court well and hit the ball crisply to overwhelm Norrie.

Floyd Mayweather Embarrassingly Knocks Out Tenshin Nasukawa In First Round
Nasukawa entered the ring with a 28-0 kickboxing record and 4-0 MMA record. "I'm still 50-0", according to ESPN's Ariel Helwani. The discrepancy in the rules and Mayweather's dominance in terms of weight could naturally not go unnoticed on Twitter .

"The Americans" beat out "Homecoming", the new Julia Roberts show about a counselor at a mysterious treatment center for returning veterans, and "Killing Eve", about the treacherous rivalry between two risky women, a British intelligence officer and an assassin. "In the next two years everything that I produce ... is 50 percent women", King said.

He also thought it was fitting to thank none other than the devil for giving him the pizzazz he needed to win the award, telling the audience: "Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration for playing this role". Alfonso Cuaron deservedly won Best Director; bafflingly, his film Roma wasn't nominated for Best Picture, even with so many slots on offer.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, Drama - Richard Madden, The Bodyguard.

But Oh, who later also won for her performance on the BBC America drama series Killing Eve, closed their opening monologue on a serious note explaining why she was hosting. What the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's ceremony lacks in gravitas it usually makes up for in freewheeling frivolity and fun.

There were so many wonderful conversations and speeches about women in film this year. Last night's winners weren't enough for many Twitter users-especially as fan-favorite films like Black Panther were kept out of the major categories.

Jeff Bridges, an ardent environmentalist, connected with everyone when receiving the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award.
