All of them talked about Hollywood's responsibility to tell stories about strong women.

Witherspoon added, "Hopefully more shows like this will be made so people who experience harassment and abuse can speak up".

Carol Burnett got a standing ovation before announcing the victor, along with Jennifer Aniston, of best actress in a musical or comedy, which went to Rachel Brosnahan of Amazon's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, about a young housewife in the late '50s, having a go at stand-up comedy after her husband leaves her.

"Big Little Lies", "This Is Us" and "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" won Golden Globes last night and are now available for streaming.

Aziz Ansari's turn in "Master Of None" won him Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, Comedy or Musical, while the acting honours in the TV Drama categories went to Elisabeth Moss for "The Handmaid's Tale" - which was named Best TV Series, Drama - and Sterling K Brown for "This Is Us".

Kidman plays Celeste Wright, a woman who is beaten by her husband.

Armie Hammer also failed to clinch an award as best supporting actor, while the movie lost out to Martin McDonagh's Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which unexpectedly found itself the Oscars front runner after taking the biggest haul of the evening. Laura Dern won a third Globe for the series for supporting actress.

The Globes have developed a reputation for often championing work before other awards shows or before it is widely known among the public.

One of Hollywood's quirkiest and most powerful female creators, Amy Sherman-Palladino, is behind the series. He said he was grateful to the series' creator for making a character specifically written for a black man. She thanked Amazon for its support.

Holding the flag for network television, Brown of NBC's "This is Us" won best actor in a drama. But whether or not This Is Us wins anything at the Globes should be a good indicator of how it'll perform at the Emmys once the season has wrapped up.

"It's been a hard year for our industry and in our fighting, we've come out of the darkness and into the light", said Witherspoon.

"It makes it that much more hard to dismiss me, or dismiss anybody who looks like me", Brown said.

The series' fourth award was for Best Limited Series or TV Movie.
