"Lady Bird", the coming-of-age story of a Sacramento teen, won the Golden Globe for best motion picture - musical or comedy on Sunday night.

'Lady Bird' star Saoirse Ronan dazzled on the Golden Globes red carpet in a gorgeous black gown. As the actress looks forward to the Oscars' Best Actress category, she will nearly certainly face off against several of them again, along with several actresses in tonight's Drama Actress category which includes The Shape of Water's Sally Hawkins, Three Billboards star Frances McDormand and The Post's Meryl Streep.

London-Irish filmmaker McDonagh also won the Best Screenplay award for his searing study of grief, with two of his stars, Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell, winning Best Actress - Drama and Best Supporting Actor respectively for their performances.

She called on all of her other colleagues in the Security Council to join her in amplifying the message of the Iranian people. Earlier in the week, the USA government announced it was suspending security assistance to the country.

The film clenched the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, beating popular films "Get Out", "I, Tonya" and "The Greatest Showman".

McDonagh lost out on Best Director to The Shape of Water's Guillermo del Toro. "I think it's also not just the content of what she says, but the way she delivers something is so inspiring that she had everyone on board". I want to thank all of the women who I love so much, my mother who is on FaceTime, my best friend.

"If the movie wins, and even me getting [this award], that's her's", Ronan insisted. On the night, Balfe revealed that she is engaged.
