This year's ceremony is once again being broadcast by NBC, with Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh at the helm of the 76th annual event.

It was a night of celebration for the cast and crew of Bohemian Rhapsody when the movie took out the Best Film (Drama) award at the 2019 Golden Globes.

Despite the look being a victor all on its own, it called to mind the Jean Louis dress Judy wore in A Star Is Born back in 1954.

Veteran actress Glenn Close won the Golden Globe for her role in The Wife, beating the favorite Lady Gaga for her role in A Star is Born.

Malek beat Bradley Cooper ("A Star Is Born"), Willem Dafoe ("At Eternity's Gate"), Lucas Hedges ("Boy Erased") and John David Washington ("BlacKkKlansman"). "And I challenge everyone out there who is in a position of power, in all industries, I challenge you to challenge yourself and stand with us in solidarity and do the same".
