Eddie Redmayne leads British winners at the Golden Globes

The Golden Globe awards took place in Los Angeles on Sunday evening. It is the first major ceremony in the awards calendar. 

London Live’s entertainment producer Simon Thompson discusses the winners and losers on the night, including the many British actors who were in the running for a gong. 

The British victories were led by Eddie Redmayne, who took home the award for best actor in a film drama globe for his portrayal of Professor Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything.
Julianne Moore won best actress for her part in the film drama Still Alice.

Downton Abbey star Joanne Froggatt won best supporting actress in a TV series. Simon explains why Ms Froggatt's speech, in which detailed the letters she had received from rape victims, was one of the most moving moments of the evening. 

George Clooney, who won a lifetime achievement award, was gently mocked by hosts Tina Fey and Amy Phoeler who implied his achievements paled in comparison to those of his wife, Human Rights lawyer Amal Clooney. 

Simon also discusses the increasing prominience of streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon, which have become increasingly popular throughout 2014. Kevin Spacey won for his role in House of Cards, which Simon says demonstrates that streaming and VOD services now offer similar levels of prestige to traditional television output. 

From Kate Hudson to Lorde, there were some stunning and some not so stunning outfits donning the red carpet. Amira Hashish discusses the fashion favourites and faux pas.
