Three Billboards Wins Four Globes, but Oprah Steals Show

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri emerged the early favorite in this year’s Oscar race after taking home a quartet of trophies in the Best Picture, Actress (Frances McDormand), Supporting Actor (Sam Rockwell) and Screenplay categories. Meanwhile, Cecil B. Demille Award-winner Oprah emerged the early favorite in the 2020 Presidential sweepstakes after delivering a rousing, nine-minute speech about female empowerment.

Host Seth Meyers opened the festivities with a monologue taking potshots at Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and Woody Allen on a historic night where most  women wore black evening gowns to show their solidarity with the #MeToo movement. And again and again, winners for female-centric films and TV shows made heartfelt acceptance speeches touching on the issue of sexual abuse.

Overall, the event amounted to a powerful confirmation of the seismic cultural shift from shaming the victims to blaming the perpetrators.
