Bohemian Rhapsody is a biopic about Freddie Mercury and British rock band Queen.

"And I just challenge anyone out there - anyone out there who is in a position of power, not just in our industry, in all industries - I challenge you to challenge yourselves and stand with us in solidarity and do the same", she said.

The 76th Golden Globe Awards has begun, marking the official start of the awards season in Hollywood.

Malek thanked Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor, as well as Mercury for providing the role of a lifetime.

There were deserved wins for Mahershala Ali for Green Book, a true story of race in America in the 1960s, and that film was the night's biggest victor.

In 2016, Gaga won best actress in a miniseries or motion picture made for television for her role in FX's "American Horror Story: Hotel".

Having won the Best Drama Actor gong at the globes, Malek will now be the favourite for the Oscar, alongside Best Musical or Comedy Actor victor Christian Bale.

"If I could take a moment here in all honesty, I said "Yes" to the fear of being on this stage tonight because I wanted to be here to look out into this audience and witness this moment of change", Oh said. "We have to find personal fulfillment", the 71-year-old actress said.

The Globes always split the best-picture nominees into two categories: drama and musical/comedy.

Ali also won best supporting actor for the movie.

There are also the Comedy/Musical films to consider for Oscar competition.

But some of their comic bits felt flat, including a gag about Jim Carrey being in the wrong seat and a bit in which fake doctors swarmed the room to administer "flu shots", which left many stars looking confused.

During his acceptance speech he thanked his late father, Lloyd Bridges, and pulled up his sleeve to reveal his dad's cuff links.

The television side of the Globes can feel a bit redundant coming so soon after the Emmys in September, with numerous same nominees as the Television Academy field.
