The 76th Golden Globes shook up Hollywood on Sunday night, marking the first major show awards leading up to the Oscars next month.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association gave Queen musical Bohemian Rhapsody its top prize in an unexpected win over romance A Star is Born, and named 1960s segregation-era Green Book the best comedy or musical film.

Rami Malek won best drama actor for his role as former Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, and Glenn Close won for The Wife over what entertainment analysts said was the favourite: Lady Gaga in A Star Is Born.

Vice, described as a fierce political comedy about the rise to power of former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney, went into Sunday’s ceremony with a leading six nominations.

However, the movie has divided audiences and critics and went home with just one for actor Christian Bale. The actor gave thanks to Satan “for giving me inspiration for playing this role”.
