You know this year's Golden Globe Awards is going on well when you have a red carpet that doesn't disappoint, and with actors like Claire Foy saying "this is really nice" as an adorable euphemism for her first win. Better yet, when host Jimmy Fallon kicks off the show and realises that the teleprompter is down (already?!), but the excited comedian carries on flawlessly.

La La Land was the big winner of the night, not only sweeping the most awards for various categories, but doing so for all seven categories it was nominated in: Best Motion Picture, Best Actor and Best Actress, all in the Musical or Comedy genre, as well as Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Original Score and Best Song. It's probably also important to note that these made the first Golden Globe wins for Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, director/screenwriter Damien Chazelle and composer Justin Hurwitz.

Guess who else won. Hiddlesbum! Yes, Tom Hiddleston picked up his first Golden Globe for his role in The Night Manager. His co-stars Olivia Colman and Hugh Laurie also won awards for the miniseries.

As for other awards night shenanigans, Kristen Wiig and Steve Carell presented the award for Best Motion Picture - Animated, which went to Zootopia, but their introductory speech wasn't quite happily-ever-after material (of course, still hilarious).

Meryl Streep was this year's recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award, and announced onstage that she had lost her voice. She continued her speech anyway, and made us shed a few tears. Then, she spoke about "one performance" that really stunned her and not in a good way. She meant how Donald Trump had mocked a disabled reporter during a rally.

"It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can't get it out my head because it wasn't in a movie, it was in real life," she said. "That instinct to humiliate when it's modelled by someone in a public platform, it filters down into everyone's life because it gives permission for others to do the same. Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence."

Watch some of the best winning speeches here, including Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy winner Ryan Gosling's, in which he thanked his wife Eva Mendes for being the real badass behind his success: "If she hadn't taken all that on, so that I could have this experience, it would surely be someone else up here other than me." Aww!
