LOS ANGELES: Hosts Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh kicked off the Golden Globes, with hit music romance “A Star Is Born” the frontrunner at the year’s first and sassiest awards gala.
Under an azure southern California sky, Tinseltown’s elite worked the red carpet for the first time this awards season at the Beverly Hilton, in the run-up to the all-important Oscars on February 24. Samberg started the proceedings with light-hearted banter and jokes — and very little of the cutting commentary that was common in past years.
Queen biopic ‘Bohemian Rhaspody’ pulled a major upset, taking home two top prizes — best drama film and best actor for Rami Malek, who played the band’s frontman Freddie Mercury.
Meanwhile, Civil rights dramedy ‘Green Book’ took home three prizes overall and Mexican filmmaker Alfonso Cuaron’s ‘Roma’ won two Globes.

A year ago, the Golden Globes red carpet was a total blackout as Hollywood’s A-listers drew attention to the problem of sexual harassment in entertainment and other industries. This year, the message remained, but the sartorial choices were far more diverse.
