The 75th Golden Globe Awards showed several firsts and some big wins for women Sunday.
Sterling K. Brown became the first African-American actor to win in the best actor in a TV drama category for “This Is Us,” and Aziz Ansari was the first Asian actor to win a Golden Globe for best actor in a TV comedy for “Master of None.”
But it was Oprah Winfrey, the first black woman to be awarded the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement, who brought the audience to their feet with her stirring speech.
Winfrey accepted a lifetime achievement award by saying she hopes as the first black women to accept the honor, she hopes it has an impact on young girls watching Sunday’s ceremony.
“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” won some of the top honors, including best actress with Frances McDormand as well as best motion picture screenplay and motion picture,
