A Hawaiian singer with Kiwi roots also won at the Golden Globe for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture.

Broadway star Keala Settle ‑ who is of Maori and British descent ‑ took home the prize at the 75th Annual Golden Globe awards for the song This Is Me from the recent musical release The Greatest Showman.

Settle starred in the film alongside Hollywood A‑listers Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, and Michelle Williams. 

Meanwhile, powerful speeches about Hollywood's sexual abuse scandal have dominated the 75th Golden Globe Awards.

It was the first major Hollywood awards ceremony since the film industry was hit by sexual harassment scandals, with stars wearing black to honour victims.

Oprah Winfrey summed up the mood, saying "a new day is on the horizon" as she collected an honorary award.

The big film winner of the night was Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which took home four awards.

It won the best film drama award with its star Frances McDormand also picking up a trophy for best actress.

The Oscar‑winning actress stars as a grieving mother who challenges police over the fact her daughter's killer has not been found.

The Best Actor in a Motion Picture is James Franco for his role in The Disaster Artist.

Big Little Lies was also named best-limited TV series.

Kidman won the first award of the night for her role as a victim of domestic violence.
