The 75th annual Golden Globes aired Sunday, Jan. 7 and it featured a crowd of stars donning black to call out sexual harassment. Meanwhile, a ceremony for TV and film went on inside the Beverly Hilton in California where there were lots of wins — and snubs, too.

Among the big moments of the night, Sterling K. Brown made history by becoming the first Black man to win Best Actor In A TV Drama.

“You wrote a role for a Black man,” he said to his “This Is Us” creator Dan Fogelman. “That can only be played by a Black man. I’m being seen for who I am and appreciated for who I am, and it makes it that much more difficult to dismiss me or anyone who looks like me.”

Fans ate up the moment.

Oprah also made waves when she accepted the Cecil B. Demille Award, a lifetime achievement honor at the Globes.

7 of the Blackest Moments at the 2017 Golden Globes


“It is not lost on me that, at this moment, there is some little girl watching as I become the first Black woman to be given the same award,” Winfrey said, noting she watched as Sidney Poitier become the first Black person to win the best actor Oscar in 1964. “It is an honor and it is a privilege to share the evening with all of them.”

Of course, Oprah also captured the attention of viewers at home and at the hotel alike.

Still, there were some upsetting moments, too.

Octavia Spencer and Mary J. Blige lost for Best Supporting Actress – Motion Picture and Best Original Song respectively. And “black-ish” failed to win for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy and Best Actor – Television Series Musical or Comedy.

After stirring some confusion for the category in which it was submitted, Jordan Peele’s  racial satirical thriller “Get Out” lost in the  Musical or Comedy category and Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy.

Instead, actor Daniel Kaluuya fell to James Franco in “The Disaster Artist” while the flick lost to “Lady Bird.”

The snub really ticked supporters off.
