Madden and Whishaw won TV awards for their roles in BBC dramas Bodyguard and A Very English Scandal respectively.

Bohemian Rhapsody won two big awards, including a surprise victory over A Star Is Born to scoop best film drama.

Rami Malek also won best actor in a film drama for his portrayal of late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury.

Green Book, which delves into racial tensions in the Deep South in the early 1960s, was among the other big winners, picking up three prizes, including best comedy/musical film.

Colman was named best actress in a musical/comedy for her role as Queen Anne in The Favourite.

Glenn Close, the star of The Wife, beat Lady Gaga to the award for best actress in a drama film.

In an impassioned speech, she spoke about the importance of women following their dreams and not just looking after their home lives.

Lady Gaga was nominated for her role in A Star Is Born, but that film only ended up winning one award ‑ best song for Shallow.

Unlike the Oscars, the Golden Globes rewards TV as well as film.

Michael Douglas dedicated his award to wife Catherine Zeta Jones

The Americans was named best TV drama and The Kominsky Method picked up best TV comedy. The Netflix show's star Michael Douglas won best actor in a TV series (musical or comedy) for playing an ageing acting coach.

The award came 49 years after he received his first Golden Globe nomination for best male newcomer.
