What the Golden Globe wins mean for the Oscars , which will come later on, is the traction they will provide. The best visual glamour works which are likely to grab the statuettes at the Oscars after their favorable reception at the Golden Globes include: The Revenant, Mad Max: Fury Road, Spotlight in the drama category and The Big Short and The Martian in the comedy category. These were part of the 10 best pictures list.

As expected, Damien Chazelle's modern musical La La Land won big at the Golden Globes 2017 last night (Sunday 8 January), dancing away with a record-breaking seven awards including best actor, best actress and best picture in the musical or comedy categories as well as best original score, best screenplay and best director.

But just as host Jimmy Fallon's teleprompter playing up or Meryl Streep's stirring speech about President-elect Donald Trump were unforeseen moments during the ceremony, the winner's list ended up being pretty surprising too.

Not many imagined that Nocturnal Animals actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson would triumph over the likes of Jeff Bridges and Dev Patel, but it was more surprising that he won when Mahershala Ali seemed liked a dead cert as soon as he was nominated for his performance in Moonlight.

Trump says he's not surprised at 'liberal' Meryl Streep's 2017 Golden Globes attack

  Trump says he's not surprised at 'liberal' Meryl Streep's 2017 Golden Globes attack Donald Trump has responded to Meryl Streep's Golden Globes 2017 speech, which slammed the President-elect and specifically referenced disabled journalist Serge F. Kovaleski and an incident that saw Trump "mock" him during his electoral campaign. Speaking to the New York Times, Trump admitted that while he didn't see the awards ceremony broadcast on NBC, he was "not surprised" to have been attacked by "liberal movie people". After receiving the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Cecil B DeMille Award at the ceremony, Into The Woods actor Streep never used the president-elect's name, but said: "There was one performance this year that stunned me. It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good; there was nothing good about it. But it was effective and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh, and show their teeth. "It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter," she continued, remembering back to when Trump twisted his arms, reportedly in imitation of Kovaleski during a speech in November 2015. "It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can't get it out of my head, because it wasn't in a movie. It was real life." But Trump has disputed Streep's statements, explaining: "I was never mocking anyone.

The film also earned acting nominations for its two electric leads, Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, who fill out a formidable acting slate that includes long-predicted hopefuls like Natalie Portman (Jackie), Casey Affleck (Manchester By the Sea), Viola Davis (Fences) and Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), along with a few big surprises : Jonah Hill (War Dogs), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Nocturnal Animals) and Simon Helberg. (Florence Foster Jenkins). But what bearing do the nominations have on Hollywood’s top prize — the Oscars — and how is the 2017 race shaping up? The Globes ’ golden picks continue to

Similarly, when it came to best dramatic actress, everyone figured Natalie Portman had this one in the bag. Not only is she somewhat of an award darling, Jackie - the film for which she was nominated - is none other than a US history-based biopic. Award shows can't usually resist praising those.

But nonetheless, French actress Isabelle Huppert won for her role in psychological thriller Elle, subsequently blowing the Oscar race wide open despite everyone initially thinking it was going to be a two-horse race between Portman and Emma Stone (for La La Land).

Additionally, while not necessarily a surprise, Viola Davis picking up the award for best supporting actress for drama Fences indicates the quest for the little golden statue is going to be a contest between four formidable female actors in February.

The Golden Globes air Sunday night on NBC and with the minor exception of the Critics Choice Awards, they will offer us our first real look at what our 2017 Oscars winners lineup could be. The awards have long been considered a precursor for the Academy Awards; if a star wins a Globe , they're likely to at least earn an Oscar nod. The Jackie actress could potentially lose to Amy Adams, who is beloved by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — she won in a surprise for Big Eyes, and won for American Hustle as well.

Surprises weren't exclusive to the actors but music talents too. Many were shocked to see Justin Timberlake's chart hit Can't Stop The Feeling and Moana's uplifting How Far I'll Go lose out to Justin Hurwitz's City Of Stars... but it did. The only dead cert is confirmation that La La Land will be the winner of best original score and song at the future award shows.

While all of the unexpected victors were welcome winners, it was Moonlight walking away with the prize for best drama motion picture which was the most notable delight. That is not to say that fellow nominees Hacksaw Ridge, Hell Or High Water, Lion or Manchester By The Sea wouldn't have been worthy winners - they would have been, particularly the latter - but considering how closed off award ceremonies have been in past years to films that centre on diversity, it is certainly refreshing to see it triumph.

Not only is it a beautiful coming-of-age drama in its own right, it shouldn't be ignored that it is directed by a black man, features an almost entirely black cast and centres on a gay character.

This is where the usual caveats about the Golden Globes come into play: The small organization of eccentric foreign journalists contains, at most, just one Academy member, so any assumption that the Oscars will follow lockstep in the Globes ' footsteps are overblown.

What do the 2017 Golden Globes mean for the Oscar race? It 's all good news for "La La Land," but not so much for "Jackie." There were numerous surprises at the 2017 Golden Globes on Sunday night, January 8 (see the complete list of winners), so some of us may be scrambling to change our Oscar predictions before those nominations are announced on January 24. But should we bow to temptation?

It is important that these stories are told and moreover, that when they are told well, they are recognised accordingly. Here is hoping this inclusiveness is echoed in next month's Oscars too.

It wasn't just the film categories that offered up some curveballs however. The television categories had their fair share of surprising wins too.

Undoubtedly the biggest was Netflix's The Crown trumping award-giant Game Of Thrones and insanely popular newbie Westworld for best drama TV series. While that might not have any influence on the movie-centred Academy Awards, could that mean that The Crown might clean up at later television-based ceremonies? It seems likely.

Similarly, it was quite a shock to see The Crown's lead, British actor Claire Foy, receive the prize for best actress in a television drama over the likes of The American's Keri Russell, Stranger Things' Winona Ryder and Westworld's Evan Rachel Wood.

Particularly considering that the latter picked up a Critics Choice Television Award in the equivalent category for her work on the show in December 2016. Not that Foy isn't a deserving winner, but that the other contenders seemed more likely winners going in.

Finally, viewers of the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards were caught off guard when new hit series Atlanta saw Donald Glover win for best actor in a TV comedy and the show itself win for best comedy series. It beat Black-ish, Mozart In The Jungle, Transparent and even seven-time Golden Globe winning show Veep. Is this the sign of times a-changing and becoming more welcoming of new content? Fingers crossed.
