The pop superstar is also a favourite to take home the best actress Globe for “A Star is Born”, her first lead role, later at the ceremony in Beverly Hills.
“As a woman in music, it is really hard to be taken seriously as a musician and a songwriter,” said the singer as she accepted her award, dressed in a lavender gown and wearing her hair coloured blue.
As widely expected, Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron’s semi-autobiographical black and white film “Roma” won best foreign language movie.
It was also a big night for Sandra Oh, who as well as hosting her first Golden Globe ceremony was named best television drama actress for BBC America thriller “Killing Eve.”
Oh, who was born in Canada of Asian descent, had earlier paid tribute to the plethora of Golden Globe-nominated films and TV shows featuring black and Asian actors and directors, including “Crazy Rich Asians,” “Black Panther,” and “BlacKkKlansman.”
“I wanted to be here to look out into this audience and witness this moment of change,” Oh said. “Right now this moment is real. Because I see you … all these faces of change. And now so will everyone else.”
