"[W]omen take center stage at the Golden Globes ... the first major awards show of Hollywood’s #MeToo movement," by L.A. Times' Glenn Whipp:

  • "The procession of black dresses that began at the Beverly Hilton’s red carpet moved to the winner’s podium as films and television shows driven by women — 'Lady Bird,' 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,' 'The Handmaid’s Tale,' 'Big Little Lies' and 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' — prevailed at a ceremony marked mostly by serious speeches focusing on months of allegations and admissions of sexual harassment within Hollywood."
  • Host Seth Meyers: “There’s a new era underway ... and I can tell, because it’s been years since a white man was this nervous in Hollywood.”
  • "The evening, long marketed as the looser, less inhibited answer to the stodgy Oscars, actually felt a lot like the Academy Awards with plenty of effusive and heartfelt acceptance speeches."
