A Star Is Born boasts five nominations at the Globes in major categories like Best Original Song, Best Director, Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama, and Best Motion Picture - Drama.

Following his impressive win, all eyes were set on the Best Picture Award, which coincidentally also went to Bohemian Rhapsody.

The traditional Golden Globes red carpet walk featured a number of creations by Arab fashion designers, such as Elie Saab, Zuhair Murad and Reem Acra.

Sandra Oh won an award herself, snatching best actress in a TV drama for "Killing Eve", and in a moving speech, thanked her parents in Korean.

Green Book was the victor in the best comedy or musical category. "We have to find personal fulfillment", she said.

"This is a profound honour to receive this and to be counted among such extraordinary actors".

"This is beyond anything we ever imagined when we began shooting", said director and writer Peter Farrelly.

Spanish language Roma, a semi-autobiographical film by legendary Mexican filmmaker Alfonso Cuaron, snatched the foreign language category and best directing.

Olivia Colman, who plays Queen Anne in offbeat royal romp The Favourite, and Bale won as expected in the comedy acting races.

Mahersala Ali won for his supporting role in the film "Green Book" and the film also won the best screenplay prize.

The show's hosts, Oh and Samberg, mostly avoided politics in their opening comments.

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

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.

"Jeff Bridges received the Globes" honorary Cecil B. DeMille Award. Not many saw that coming.

"So here's to reruns and YouTube", she said.
