History ruled the Golden Globe awards in Los Angeles with films about Shakespearean England and World War Two dominating the proceedings.
Queen Elizabeth ruled during the time of Golden Globe-winner 'Shakespeare in Love' and was played in 'Elizabeth' by Cate Blanchett, who also won a Globe on Sunday night.
Otherwise, the ceremony that often serves as a predictor for the Academy Awards left the Oscar race pretty much where it was before the Golden Globes.
The red carpet outside the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles welcomed many of the world's most famous and glamorous movie stars on Sunday.
Tom Hanks, Robin Williams, Sean Connery and Sharon Stone in a scarlet dress waved to the crowd and walked into Hollywood's second biggest award show.
The Golden Globe awards are presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and are regarded as a reliable indicator for the Oscars, which will be announced in March.
In the last 16 years, 12 films that won Best Picture at the Golden Globes won the same award at the Oscars.
One award was announced before the ceremony - a Cecil B. De Mille Lifetime Achievement award for actor Jack Nicholson.
There's been controversy in the Golden Globes in recent years over the relationship between the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and the movie studios.
But this year the movie stars came out in force to support the awards ceremony.
Lynn Redgrave captured the first big award for her acclaimed role in 'Gods and Monsters.'
It was her second, after winning for 'Georgy Girl' in 1967.
"I'm a little overwhelmed because it's just 32 years since I stood one of these on a mantelpiece, and it's been calling for a friend ever since. I'm just so glad to have it here."

Tom Hanks made an unusual appearance.
Having won two Oscars and many other awards in his career, he won a Golden Globe for best documentary, 'Earth to the Moon', which he executive produced.
T-V actress Camryn Manheim injected the one political note into the evening, referring to the upcoming motion in the U-S Senate to dismiss the impeachment against Bill Clinton.
"I would like to share this with every single Senator who votes to dismiss the case tomorrow."

Fox recently revealed he is suffering from Parkinson's Disease and used his speech to thank his doctors.
Top drama acting award of the night went to Cate Blanchett for her portrayal of the virgin queen in 'Elizabeth.'
"Geoffrey Rush, who is just a constant source of inspiration and who was just such a support to me making the film, Jenny Shirkaw and Alex Burn and my dresser who let me cry on her shoulder as she tugged the corset in, thank you. If I've forgotten people it's just because I'm a little bit delirious, thank you, thank you."

Awards for the best picture and the best director were collected by Steven Spielberg for his harrowing World War Two epic 'Saving Private Ryan.'
All eyes now turn to the Oscars, with nominations to be announced by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences next month.
