Her time at the microphone is the first time a woman with Asian descent has hosted a major American awards show.

Christian Bale picked up the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy), thanks to his turn as Dick Cheney in Vice.

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".

Best Television Series, Drama - The Americans.

"Green Book", arguably the night's biggest victor, also took best screenplay and best supporting actor for Mahershala Ali.

In an emotional speech, Close said that women in Hollywood should not be afraid to stand up for their careers.

Nominees that have been in sizable box office hits may also potentially help the Globes, none more than Ryan Coogler's "Black Panther", up for best picture (drama) and score.

The Globes always split the best-picture nominees into two categories: drama and musical/comedy.

From "roasting" the enormous talent of Amy Adams - who has two Golden Globe nominations for her work on Sharp Objects and Vice - to simply calling Michael B. Jordan "hot", it was a much different approach to previous award show monologues.


Best actress, drama: Glenn Close, "The Wife".

The show's hosts, Oh and Samberg, mostly avoided politics in their opening comments.

"Oh my God, I am beyond moved", Malek said on stage while receiving the award.

In television, the big winners were Cold War spy thriller "The Americans", limited series "The Assassination of Gianni Versace", and new Netflix comedy "The Kominsky Method".

Oh won best performance by an actress in a drama television series for her role in the BBC's Killing Eve, becoming the first Asian woman to take home the award in nearly 40 years, the Independent also notes. Not exactly a great look for Hollywood or the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and it has people wondering how they go about voting.

Green Book won best comedy/musical.

Last year's show, like a lot of recent awards shows, saw ratings decline.

But Sunday's ceremony might hinge most on just what kind of party the Globes can muster this year.

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