AMANDA SPEARS: Oldman becomes the second actor to win for playing Churchill and first on the film side. Albert Finney won for “The Gathering Storm” (2003).

ANDREW CARDEN: If Gary Oldman could triumph here, after his jabbing at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, he’s more or less a shoo-in for that Oscar.

Film Drama Actor — Gary Oldman “Darkest Hour”

MATT NOBLE: After a disappointing start losing screenplay and supporting actress a deserved rally for Lady Bird with 2 wins!

AMANDA SPEARS: On the film side the Golden Globes are back to spreading the wealth around.

CHARLES BRIGHT: I know I’m a bit late to this since I’m monitoring the messeage boards but, (A), I can’t believe I switched away from Aziz at the last minute and bought all that Eric McCormack crap and, (B), Oprah was at her most OPRAH!!!! tonight and I LOVED IT!!!

“Lady Bird” clip — presented by Greta Gerwig

MATT NOBLE: Savage and deserved take down of an all male director lineup by Portman.

SAM ECKMANN: Best Shade of The Night goes to: Natalie Portman, following up Oprah’s epic speech by introducing “all the male nominees” for Best Director.

Cecil B. DeMille Award to Oprah Winfrey — presented by Reese Witherspoon

DANIEL MONTGOMERY: And “Will & Grace” is now 0-for-29. I wonder why they bothered nominating it again after all these years just to add to its losing streak.

ANDREW CARDEN: And with that, “Will & Grace” is now 0-for-29 at the Golden Globes.

AMANDA SPEARS: Ansari that was a great burn! 

TV Comedy Actor — Aziz Ansari “Master of None”

TONY RUIZ: I love Amy Sherman Palladino, but why is she dressed like she’s auditioning for a role in a Bob Fosse revue?

DANIEL MONTGOMERY: Hooray for Amy Sherman-Palladino. This is definitely an acceptance speech by the woman who created Lorelai Gilmore.

AMANDA SPEARS: Proof if you wish for something hard enough for YEARS then it will eventually happen! Next Lauren Graham!

MARCUS JAMES DIXON: Seth Meyers had an amazing monologue, but he’s been virtually absent ever since. Is the show running so long that they’ve had to cut all his bits?

ZACH LAWS: Dougie Jones got robbed.

AMANDA SPEARS: Cut to Frances McDormand!!!

Film Screenplay —  “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” Martin McDonagh

ROB LICURIA: Woah, first surprise of the night! Allison Janney takes down Laurie Metcalf. Did the HFPA just not love “Lady Bird”? Or did Allison’s great performance just knock them out?

AMANDA SPEARS: What’s better than losing five times on the TV Side then finally winning for a Film!!

ZACH LAWS: Hate to brag, but I totally predicted Allison Janney would win.

Film Supporting Actress — Allison Janney “I, Tonya”

MARCUS JAMES DIXON: The show is halfway over, and Gold Derby’s odds are 100% on the TV side. That means if you just copied the frontrunners in all of the TV categories, you have a perfect score right now!

Dwayne Johnson introduces Golden Globe Ambassador Simone Garcia Johnson

ANDREW CARDEN: Ahem…no standing ovation for Shirley MacLaine?!

AMANDA SPEARS: Even with a piece of paper Franco NAILED his Oscar Audition. Gary Oldman and Timothee Chalamet take notice!!!

TV Supporting Actor —  Alexander Skarsgard “Big Little Lies”

“The Disaster Artist” clip — presented by Seth Rogen

MARCUS JAMES DIXON: Good news for everyone who predicted the Golden Globes: if you simply copied all the Emmy winners, you got a great score! I, of course, thought the Globes would go their own way and so my score is going to be awful.

DANIEL MONTGOMERY: I always love watching the TV winners try to find their way to the stage from all the way in the back of the room. You need a Sherpa to find the stage from back there.

TV Drama Series — “The Handmaid’s Tale”

DANIEL MONTGOMERY: Another great acceptance speech by Sterling K. Brown. Let’s just keep giving him awards until he runs out of good speeches. Might never happen.

TONY RUIZ: At least the Globes let Sterling K. Brown finish. Thank God!

AMANDA SPEARS: The crowd has been really enthusiastic tonight.

ANDREW CARDEN: Someday, Bob Odenkirk and Liev Schreiber, you’ll finally win one of these things. Someday.
