Golden Globes ratings down a tick for NBC despite powerful night

Barbra Streisand, appearing on stage as the final presenter to announce the best drama victor, echoed that sentiment, saying, "Folks, time's up!" "Trust me: the women in this room tonight are not here for the food".

Ashley Judd, the first big name to go on record with her Weinstein experience, and Salma Hayek, who last month penned an op-ed about her nightmare with Weinstein, arrived together.

-Actress, Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy: Saoirse Ronan, "Lady Bird".

Mexican director Guillermo del Toro won best director for magical fantasy "The Shape of Water". "Time is up, we see you, we hear you and we will tell your stories". While Water entered the evening with a leading seven nominations, it took home just two trophies, including one for Alexandre Desplat's score.

James Franco won the award for Best Actor in the Musical or Comedy category for his portrayal of Tommy Wiseau in The Disaster Artist.

Allison Janney earned the award as best supporting actress for her performance as a terrifying stage mother in I, Tonya, and took a moment to point out another real-life person in the room, skater Tonya Harding, thanking her "for sharing her story ... a story about class in America, a story about the disenfranchised".

NBC "Late Night" host Seth Meyers, comparing himself (as a white male awards-show host in 2018) to "the first dog they shot into space", delivered a monologue focused on the tidal wave of harassment and sexual misconduct allegations in Hollywood - and the many male producers, directors and writers no longer working because of them.

Accepting the award for best foreign language film, German director Fatih Akin brought that movie's star Diane Kruger up on stage with him, saying that he shares the award with her. Backstage Sunday, "Coco" director Lee Unkrich was asked about changes at Pixar. "The Handmaid's Tale" later added the award for best TV series, drama.

Texas takes down No. 16 TCU in double OT
The win over TCU was Texas' biggest of the season and improves the Longhorns' record to 11-5 and 2-2 in conference play. Smart gave no update on Jones' status and cited the family's request for privacy - a signal something was wrong.

The big victor in the television category was the HBO series Big Little Lies, in which a murder prompts three mothers to take stock of their lives.

When accepting her award, Nicole said it went to the power of women including her good friend and co-star Reese Witherspoon. "And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say "Me too" again".

But on top of that, we covered a whole host of other stuff, including what is it like hanging out with Game Of Thrones star Peter Dinklage, his scenes in this movie with a much loved It's Always Sunny actor, the next big role he has lined up (hint: he's playing a recent U.S. President), and - of course - which lines of dialogue from cult classic comedy Galaxy Quest still get shouted at him to this day.

"You wrote a role for a black man that can only be played by a black man", said Brown.

-Actor, Series, Musical or Comedy: Aziz Ansari, "Master of None".

Although it got somewhat lost amid the glitter of the awards themselves, the HFPA also used the occasion to issue a release announcing $2 million in grants to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and to the Committee To Protect Journalists - $1 million to each organization. She purchases three highly-visible billboards to call public attention to the unsolved crime with unforeseen consequences.

The Globes have a reputation, deserved or not, for being the fun! awards show - the unrestricted schmooziness!
