The Hollywood award season began in earnest Sunday night during the 2018 Golden Globe Awards. Trophies were handed out to top-notch performers and films, many of which winning titles, as they've inspired rave reviews in BW since premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2017. Golden Globes went to Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which scored four awards; Lady Bird, which scored two awards; and actors Frances McDormand (Three Billboards), Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour), Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird) and James Franco (The Disaster Artist).

Even with spirits running high, the 2017 sexual harassment scandals that rocked the entertainment industry cast a shadow over the evening. Many of the attendees wore black in a show of solidarity with the #MeToo movement, and host Seth Meyers set his sights on the elephant in the room.

"Good evening, ladies and remaining gentlemen," Meyers said, addressing the crowd. "They tried to get a woman to host this show. They really did. They said, 'Hey, how would you like to come and be judged by some of the most powerful people in Hollywood?' And women were like, 'Hmm, well, where is it?' And they said, 'It’s at a hotel,' and long story short, I’m your host tonight."
