'Three Billboards' Director Martin McDonagh Blasts Hollywood's 'Bland PC Filmmaking'

'Three Billboards' Director Martin McDonagh Blasts Hollywood's 'Bland PC Filmmaking'

On the big-screen side, writer-director Martin McDonagh's dark drama Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri was the biggest victor, receiving six nominations and four awards over the course of the night.

A24, on the other hand, has been busy promoting Greta Gerwig's Lady Bird and James Franco's The Disaster Artist, not only for awards but also for their theatrical releases.

While it was a big night for streaming video companies, HBO - which has its own, popular subscription-based streaming service - also won big at the ceremony. It was named Best Motion Picture - Drama, and Frances McDormand won Best Actress, Sam Rockwell nabbed the Best Actor in a Supporting Role and Martin McDonagh bagged the Best Screenplay honour for it.

But you'll have to shell out for multiple streaming services. The stars wore all black in solidarity of "Me Too" and "Times Up" in honor of sexual harassment and equality.

For example, Lightbox is streaming The Handmaid's Tale, which took home Best TV Series, Drama, and netted Elisabeth Moss a Best Actress award. "Trust me, the women in this room tonight are not here for the food".

It has crotch-kicking, Sam Rockwell and enough swearing to make a tradie blush which makes Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri our new favourite movie.

But it was this speech from the one and only Oprah Winfrey that everyone is talking about.

The flick, which picked up a handful of Golden Globes over the weekend, doesn't sound like it should be amusing; it follows the story of Mildred, played by Frances McDormand, as she sets out on a one-woman crusade to avenge her daughter's murder.
