Elton John won a ‘Best Song’ Golden Globe last night, alongside songwriting partner Bernie Taupin. The two men won the honor for “I’m Gonna Love Me Again,” which they wrote for the Elton biopic, Rocketman.

Rocketman star Taron Egerton won a Globe for his portrayal of Elton, while Renee Zellwegger marked her return to the big screen with a Golden Globe for playing gay icon Judy Garland in Judy.

The biggest winners of the night were Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, which took five awards, and the WW1 drama 1917, which took the awards for Best Motion Picture and Best Director (Sam Mendes).

Once Upon A Time‘s haul included ‘Best Supporting Actor’ for Brad Pitt. It was his first Golden Globe since a win in 1996 for 12 Monkeys. The movie also took the award for ‘Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy’ and Best Screenplay (Tarantino).

The other movie to enter the night with a clutch of nominations was Martin Scorcese’s The Irishman, but it left empty-handed.

In the TV categories, Olivia Colman won Best Actress on a TV drama for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II in Netflix’s The Crown, Phoebe Waller-Bridge won Best Performance by an Actress in a musical/comedy TV show for Fleabag, and Michelle Williams won Best Actress on a limited series or movie for TV for Fosse/Verdon.

Ellen DeGeneres won the second Carol Burnett Award award for her lifetime contribution to television.

Kate McKinnon gave a moving introductory speech on the impact that DeGeneres’ coming out had had on her, as a teen, accepting her sexuality for the first time, and the importance of LGBTQ representation.

McKinnon said discovering she was gay was scary: “The only thing that made it less scary was seeing Ellen on TV. She risked her entire life and her entire career in order to tell the truth, and she suffered greatly for it.

“Of course, attitudes change but only because brave people like Ellen jump into the fire to make them change.”

DeGeneres thanked McKinnon for her kind words and gave a hilarious speech about winning her award and thanking a fictional husband, “Marc,” while wife Portia de Rossi laughed in the audience.

The evening was hosted by Ricky Gervais. Despite him jokingly telling winners in advance not to lecture the viewing audience at home on being “woke”, (“Come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and God, and fuck off.”), many did use their speeches to make more serious points.

This included Michelle Williams making an impassioned speech on women’s right to choose, and Australians Cate Blanchett and Russell Crowe reminding people of the bushfire crisis in Australia.

Besides Elton and Ellen’s big wins, other queer moments of the evening included Billy Porter. Despite failing to win his nominated category (Best Actor in a Television Series), losing to Brian Cox for Succession, he still made a splash on the red carpet wearing a white suit with a feathered train and 4,000 crystals.

Out actor Andrew Scott didn’t win the award for Best Supporting Actor in a comedy show, but he looked dapper in his white jacket and bow-tie, and Fleabag co-star Phoebe Waller-Bridge sang his praises during her award acceptance speech, saying, “He can have chemistry with a pebble.”

Matt Bomer attended with his husband, Simon Halls. Bomer joined Sofia Vergara on stage to present an award.

Finally, Jason Momoa, attending with wife Lisa Bonet, was spotted wearing a tank top at the ceremony, prompted plenty of appreciative praise on Twitter.
