Golden Globes 2020: British stars have golden night

British stars have had a golden night at a Golden Globes, where Australia’s bushfires were the main talking point.

The newly knighted Sir Sam Mendes received two awards for his World War I epic 1917 – the same number of trophies won by Elton John biopic Rocketman.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s sitcom Fleabag won two prizes, while Olivia Colman won for playing The Queen in The Crown.

Once Upon a Time In Hollywood was the biggest winner overall, with Brad Pitt and Quentin Tarantino both recognised.

The revisionist Tinseltown fable was named best musical or comedy, saw Tarantino win best screenplay and earned Pitt his second Golden Globe for best supporting actor.

The event saw multiple mentions of the deadly fires in Australia, which have claimed at least 24 lives since they began in September.
