The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles glimmers with stars as the 76th Annual Golden Globes Awards ensues.

Taylor Swift arrived at the Golden Globes to present some of the music-related awards alongside Idris Elba.

In the best actor category, Malek triumphed over Bradley Cooper ("A Star Is Born"), Willem Dafoe ("At Eternity's Gate"), Lucas Hedges ("Boy Erased") and John David Washington in "BlacKkKlansman". It won best film, comedy or musical, and best screenplay. No more. With rarer and rarer exceptions, rather than royalty, all we see now are thoughtless, ugly, marginally talented, entitled narcissists capable of drawing a crowd only when spandex and alien invasions help us forget who they really are.

"Thank you to Freddie Mercury, for giving me the joy of a lifetime", Malek said. "Thank you to Satan for giving me the inspiration on how to play this role", he joked. Mahershala Ali, whom the foreign press association overlooked for his Oscar-winning performance in "Moonlight", won best supporting actor for "Green Book". Alfonso Cuaron still won best director and the Mexican-born filmmaker's movie won best foreign language film.

Olivia Colman won best actress in a comedy/musical for her part as Queen Anne in "The Favourite".

"The Assassination of Gianni Versace" star Penelope Cruz chose dark colors, stunning in a black glittery dress by Ralph & Russo that featured a big bow on the back. King spoke about the Time's Up movement and vowed that the crews of everything she produces in the next two years will be half women.

Writer Sady Doyle tweeted: "Glad for the folks who felt "Green Book" would be best served by the optics of three middle-aged, heavy-set white guys wearily accepting their award for the movie about racism". Oh also won a Globe herself, for her performance in the BBC America drama series Killing Eve. In keeping with network TV's myopic tradition, NBC last night aired promotional spots from its streaming antagonists Netflix ("Bird Box") and Amazon Prime ("Hannah", "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel") as well as spots from cable rivals FX ("Fosse/Verdon") and HBO, which ran a 60-second teaser for the new seasons of "True Detective", "Veep" and "Game of Thrones" as well as the upcoming series "Watchmen" and "Euphoria". They did this year in not just "The Kominsky Method" and "Bodyguard" but also the Showtime prison drama "Escape at Dannemora". Retention of the audience that had tuned in for the end of the earlier Eagles-Bears nail-biter was relatively low; per Nielsen' fast national data, the last half-hour of that NFC showdown averaged 38.5 million viewers. We want to hear from you.
