Golden Globes: wins, losses and looks we loved

BLACK PANTHER: The box office hit didn't win any awards despite three nominations

AWARDS SEASON is here. Last night, stars of the screen glammed up for the Golden Globes. Here we take a look at some of the eye-catching outfits and highlight some of the black actors and actresses who won for their performances in TV and film.

Regina King
Regina King walked away with the Golden Globe for best supporting actress in a film for her performance in If Beale Street Could Talk. She was also nominated for best actress in a limited series or TV movie for the Netflix show Seven Seconds but lost out to Patricia Arquette.

Here she is winning on the red carpet in this sparkly pink number.

Kiki Layne
King's If Beale Street Could Talk co-star Kiki Layne made her mark on the red carpet in this romantic custom Dior blush pink gown. Her twist up do is the perfect crown to finish off the princess-style dress.

Mahershala Ali
The Green Book actor won best performance by an actor in a supporting role in any motion picture for his portrayal of Don Shirley in the film.

He looked sharp in a navy blue tux accessorised with a paisley print scarf.

Black Panther
Black Panther was up for three Golden Globes – best motion picture (drama), best original score and best original song for All the Stars but the film didn’t win any awards last night.

Fans have hit out at the awards for snubbing the box office hit. While one black superhero may have been snubbed, another scooped up the award for best motion picture - animated. Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse has received rave reviews from critics and it took home the best motion picture award last night.

The lack of award wins may have disappointed Black Panther fans, but cast members Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira and Michael B Jordan, and director Ryan Coogler didn’t disappoint on the red carpet.

Gurira paid homage to her Zimbabwean heritage in a custom Rodarte gown inspired by the country’s national flower the flame lily.

Idris Elba
The Luther star has got the internet speculating over whether or not he’ll be the next James Bond again after he posed for a picture with the current 007 Daniel Craig at the awards ceremony last night.

Here he is on the red carpet with his fiancée Sabrina Dhowre.

Thandie Newton
The Westworld actress was nominated for her performance in the TV series. While she didn’t end up walking away with the award for best performance by an actress in a supporting role in a series, she did shine on the red carpet in a floor length Michael Kors sequinned number, which she paired with a voluminous curly afro-style do.

Billy Porter
Billy Porter did not come to play. That is all.
