The 74th Golden Globes, hosted by Jimmy Fallon, made critic darling “La La Land” a Golden Globes history maker, gave LGBT-themed film “Moonlight” an important award and gave Meryl Streep a platform to address President-elect Donald Trump.

“La La Land” won a record-breaking seven awards including one for Best Motion Picture- Comedy or Musical and acting awards for the leads, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. The musical also cinched Best Screenplay and Best Director awards for Damien Chazelle.

In one of the ceremony’s lighter moments, Andrew Garfield and Ryan Reynolds kissed each other on the lips while Ryan Gosling went to accept his award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.

Although nominated for five awards, “Moonlight” only received one for Best Motion Picture Drama.

“Mom, you gave me my life, and I hope being on the stage right now is the fulfillment of the life that you gave me,” director and screenwriter Barry Jenkins said as he accepted the award.

“Please, tell a friend, tell a friend, tell a friend,” Jenkins urged people to spread word of the movie.

Ryan Murphy’s “The People v. O.J. Simpson” continued its awards season winning streak with an award for Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television and to Sarah Paulson for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.

Meryl Streep received the Cecil B. DeMille Award and used her acceptance speech to address President-elect Donald Trump’s mocking of a disabled New York Times reporter in 2015. She also gave her support for the Committee to Protect Journalists.

“This instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life, because it kinda gives permission for other people to do the same thing,” Streep says. “Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.”

Trump responded in a series of tweets calling Streep, “one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood.”

Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher, who were both buried in a private, joint funeral on Friday, were also remembered in a memorial reel.
