According to host Jimmy Fallon, the Golden Globes is "one of the few places left where America still honours the popular vote."

While the "Tonight Show" emcee was comparing the awards ceremony to the results of the 2016 U.S. Presidential election — and even referred to President-elect Trump as longtime "Game of Thrones" villain "King Joffrey" in his opening monologue — he kicked off the night's big telecast with a pre-recorded homage to the most-nominated film of the night, "La La Land." "La La Land" also became the winningest film in Golden Globe history on Sunday, winning all seven of the awards it was up for, including Best Picture - Musical or Comedy.

The pre-taped number included cameos from a dancing Nicole Kidman and Amy Adams, a "Saturday Night Fever"-esque John Travolta, the white Ford Bronco, a rap from the "Stranger Things" cast, a whistling Ryan Reynolds and Fallon favourites Justin Timberlake and Tina Fey.

The "La La Land" tribute seemed to fall in line with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's picks for the night's big victors, as the film's stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling won the Best Actress and Best Actor - Musical or Comedy statues.

"The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story" star Sarah Paulson also appeared in the song-and-dance introduction, and ended up winning a Best Actress in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television statue for her work in the mini-series. The series won in its category, too.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Viola Davis won the Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress trophies for "Nocturnal Animals" and "Fences," respectively, and "Moonlight" won the Best Picture - Drama award.

Over on the television side, "Atlanta" won the award for Best Comedy Series.

But it was "Black-ish" star Tracee Ellis Ross who took home a trophy of her own, and won over the crowd with her moving acceptance speech about diversity and being "seen."

"This is for all of the women, women of colour and colourful people whose stories ideas, thoughts are not always considered 'worthy' and 'valid' and 'important,' but I want you to know that we see you, I see you," said Ross.

"It is an honour to be on this show "Black-ish," to continue expanding the way we are seen and known, and to show the magic and the beauty and the sameness of the story and the stories that are outside where the industry usually looks."

Meanwhile, Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television winner Hugh Laurie dedicated his statue to "psychopathic billionaires everywhere" in yet another coded Trump reference.
