#GoldenGlobesSoBlack Acceptance Speeches: Tracee Ellis Ross, Viola Davis, Donald Glover, Barry Jenkins, More


*The Hollywood Foreign Press Association did not have an #OscarsSoWhite problem at their annual 74th Annual Golden Globes ceremony last night, with people of color taking home top awards in multiple categories – including the granddaddy of them all – Best Motion Picture Drama.

That honor went to “Moonlight,” the Miami-set coming of age story that has been a favorite of critics throughout the 2016/17 awards season.

Director Barry Jenkins accepted the award:

Donald Glover picked up an acting Globe for his breakout FX comedy “Atlanta,” and the show itself won for Best Television Series – Music or Comedy.

Watch his acceptance speeches for both categories below:

Winning for Best Performance By An Actress In A Television Series — Musical Or Comedy was a jubilant Tracee Ellis Ross for “Black-ish.”

Watch her acceptance speech below:

Courtney B. Vance and Sterling K. Brown did not win for their roles as Johnnie Cochran and Christopher Darden, respectively, in “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” but the show won for Best Limited Series, and Sarah Paulson won Best Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie for her role was Marcia Clark.

Executive Producer Nina Jacobson accepts on behalf of the show.

Saving the best for last, your Best Supporting Actress winner for “Fences,” Viola Davis:

Davis also needs a Golden Globe for the epic speech she gave to present Meryl Streep with the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award, returning the favor after Streep delivered an equally effusive speech to present Davis with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Watch Davis’ introduction of Streep below:
