BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — The Golden Globe Awards aren't generally known for their seriousness, yet Sunday's ceremony will go down in history as a powerful celebration of women.

Oprah Winfrey gave a movement-defining speech. Natalie Portman threw shade at the all-male directing nominees — while presenting that award — and then Geena Davis did the same for the actors. Barbra Streisand scoffed at the bleak fact that 34 years after her win, she remains the only female director to have won a Golden Globe. And nearly every soul wore black in support of Time's Up and as a statement against sexual misconduct in Hollywood.

For once, everyone was listening to what the women of Hollywood had to say at the Globes, which saw big wins for female-led projects like "Big Little Lies" and "Lady Bird."
