Numerous conversation-starters on social media included Jamie Lee Curtis' ice-white hair, a pretend marriage proposal from comedian Maya Rudolph to Amy Poehler, and surprise (fake) vaccinations for all the audience members. The Mexican movie, which also took the prize for best director, is seen as an Oscar frontrunner in February.

"Bohemian Rhapsody", the Rami Malek-led Freddie Mercury biopic following the rise of British rock band Queen, won Best Motion Picture - Drama.

Sunday's Globes could be a sign that awards shows in general are going to return to business as usual: The occasional snide political remark (Christian Bale thanking Satan for inspiration playing Dick Cheney, or positing that Mitch McConnell might be a good "uncharismatic" role to play next, adding an expletive), or showbiz joke (Oh and Andy Samberg saying in unison that "one lucky audience member will host the Oscars!"). However, perhaps the most surprising award of the evening went to Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse. Focus Features, which is owned by Comcast, 1960s roadtrip movie Green Book was named best comedy movie.

This is Gaga's second Golden Globe - she previously won an award for Best Actress (Miniseries or Television Film) for her role as The Countess in "American Horror Story: Hotel" at the 73rd ceremony in 2016. This was also another surprise.

Lady Gaga, the front-runner for a best drama actress award for 'A Star Is Born, ' graced the red carpet in a Valentino lavender gown with puffed sleeves and a long train, with her blue-dyed hair pulled into a tight bun, and wearing a stunning Tiffany's diamond necklace.

Kicking off the awards season, the Golden Globes saw a sea of film and television personalities make their way to the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. It was also clear that the celebration of diversity was evident right from the start. Noting the success of Crazy Rich Asians, Oh alluded to films with white stars in Asian roles like Ghost in the Shell and Aloha, the latter of which prompted Emma Stone, who starred in Aloha, to shout out "I'm sorry!" from the crowd.

Veteran actress Julia Roberts, a frequent suit-wearer on the red carpet, chose black trousers and a tan top for the awards, in which she scored her first nomination for a television role for "Homecoming".

Diversity was a big deal on this year's event.

The stars may have come out to shine on the Golden Globes red carpet today, but an unlikely contender has stolen the show.
