Taron Egerton wins Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy for the film Rocketman.

A review by The Hindu reads, 'the advantage of making an authorised biography with the subject as one of the producers is that you understand the pulse of the person. There’s ample access to study, investigate, explore and cross-check. But there’s also the threat of self-censorship, obscurantism and sanitisation. Dexter Fletcher’s biopic on Elton John (Taron Egerton) toes the line carefully. '

Brad Pitt thanks co-star Leonardo DiCaprio in Globes speech, jokes about ‘Titanic’ scene

While accepting the award, Pitt won the Golden Globes for his role in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” and took this opportunity to thank his “partner-in-crime”, co-star Leonardo DiCaprio.

The actor also joked about DiCaprio’s most famous role as Jack in “Titanic”. The actor said had it been him instead of Rose (Kate Winslet), he “would’ve shared the raft” in the final moments of the period disaster romance.

Pitt also acknowledged fellow nominees, thanking them for inspiring him.

“When I was starting out these names — Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Tom Hanks and Anthony Hopkins — were like gods to me. This is an honour in itself.”

The actor then went on to thank DiCaprio. "Before ‘The Revenant’, I used to watch, year after year, his co-stars accept awards, get up and thank him profusely,” Pitt said.

“I know why — he’s an all-star, he’s a gent and I wouldn’t be here without you.

Pitt brought his speech to an end with an appeal for kindness.

“If you have the chance to be kind to someone tomorrow, take it. I think we need it.”

Globes carpet kicks off with big sleeves and shades of pink

There was plenty of pink, puffy sleeves and lots of white on the Golden Globes red carpet as the stars shimmered and shined on one of the season’s biggest nights for fashion.

Reese Witherspoon went classic Hollywood in a white body hugger, while Charlize Theron sported a draped sash on one shoulder in neon green and a black bustier underneath.

Pink had a moment in soft hues for Kirsten Dunst (Rodarte) and Dakota Fanning. Tiffany Haddish went for bold hot pink, while Margot Robbie showed off a burst of encrusted color in a strapless top with a white column skirt below, her hair loose and beach wavy. Jennifer Lopez wore a voluminous, multicolored gown with a huge bow at the front in gold and jewel-tone green.

Chokers were abundant, from Theron to Cynthia Erivo, the latter wearing a huge blue stone at the center of her short necklace.

Erivo’s hand-beaded custom Thom Browne gown was tuxedo inspired in black and white. The “Harriet” star and fashion standout said the dress includes designs of her favorite flower, the peony, at the hem and in her lining. The short-sleeve look took 800 hours to create.

Jodie Cromer, from “Killing Eve,” sported another fashion trend of the evening, puffy sleeves, in green.

And the men?

Andrew Scott, the “hot priest” from “Fleabag,” left his cream tuxedo jacket unbuttoned for interviews and wore a huge smile on his face during his first trip to the Globes, a dark curl falling over his forehead.

The kids also represented.

The night’s youngest nominee, 12-year-old Roman Griffin Davis of "Jojo Rabbit,” took it all in wearing a bright orange velvet tuxedo jacket with black lapels and bow tie. He’s a huge fan of Globes host Ricky Gervais.

“I like how he has the courage to say anything,” Roman told E!

Billy Porter, the “Pose” nominee and fashion trailblazer, failed to disappoint in an epic long train in cream. It was adorned with white feathers and attached to a tuxedo jacket in the same hue. It’s a custom look by Alex Vinash and - bonus - the train zips off.

“It is a dinner and I do have to sit down,” he smiled.

Porter’s gear took three months to create, well before nominations were announced.

“It’s really odd to have to work on clothes before you’re even nominated,” he said.

The gender-bending star and singer carried a mirrored bag by Emm Kuo, with a diamond dragon fly on one lapel by Tiffany & Co.
