Here's the rundown of what happened at today's Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles.

They promised much for New Zealand talent. In the end, the lone Kiwi winner was Russell Crowe who took best performance by an actor in a limited series or film made for TV for his role as disgraced former Fox News boss Roger Ailes in The Loudest Voice.

Crowe wasn't at the ceremony because he's in Australia protecting his home from the bushfires but he asked Jennifer Aniston to read a message.

"Make no mistake, the tragedy unfolding in Australia is climate change based.

"We need to act based on science, move our global workforce to renewable energy and respect our planet for the unique and amazing place that it is. That way, we all have a future."

He later tweeted:

Thanks to the Golden Globes. What a cast I got to work with ... They created a complete world. Their commitment, sensitivity and courage was inspiring."

5.08pm - World War I masterpiece wins final award

"Kill me, we're nearly done," said Ricky Gervais introducing Sandra Bullock to present the final award, best drama film. The winner: 1917 - Sam Mendes' (almost) one-shot WWI masterpiece.

In a brief wrap-up Gervais exhorted the audience to donate to Australia before adding, presumably to those in attendance: "Get drunk, take your drugs, f*** off."

5.03pm - Four out of seven for Renee

Renee Zellweger made it four wins in seven nominations, bagging best actress in a drama for her lead role in Judy Garland biopic Judy. She said "the top doesn't matter, it's the journey that matters and the work that matters".

4.54pm - No joke: Joaquin wins big

Best actor in a drama film went to Joaquin Phoenix for Joker, his second win in six nominations. He started his speech with a reference to climate change before a sweary commentary on the awards aimed at his fellow nominees: "We all know there's no f****** competition betteen us and this thing is created to sell advertisements."

As the music swelled to signal his time on the stage was up, Phoenix returned to climate change saying that while voting was important those in the room could take some personal responsibility, including not taking private jets to Palm Springs (about 90 minutes' drive from Hollywood).

"I'll try to do better, I hope you do too."

4.47pm - Tarantino trumps Taika

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has won the best musical or comedy film ahead of Taika Waititi's Jojo Rabbit, Dolemite Is My Name, Knives Out and Rocketman. Only two other Kiwi hopes remain - both for The Two Popes.

4.37pm - Awkwafina wins for The Farewell

Best performance by an actress in a musical or comedy film went to Awkwafina for The Farewell, which follows a family who, upon learning their grandmother has only a short while left to live, decide not to tell her and schedule a family gathering before she dies.

By our - potentially incorrect - calcualations, that leaves four awards to go.

4.34pm - Jojo Rabbit's Roman Griffin Davis misses out

The child star of Taika Waititi's Jojo Rabbit lost out on best performance by an actor in a musical or comedy film to Rocketman's Taron Egerton. Egerton paid special tribute to Davis in his acceptance speech before dedicating the award to his mum.

4.29pm - Brad Pitt wins for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Brad Pitt won best supporting actor for his role as Cliff Booth in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and paid special tribute to "partner in crime LDC" - Leonardo DiCaprio: "He's an all-star, he's a gent and I wouldn't be here without you man."

Both Pitt and ex-wife Jennifer Aniston were at the ceremony. Entertainment Tonight reported Pitt, 56, saying: ""I'll run into Jen, she's a good friend. Yeah."

Pitt said he wanted to bring his mum to the ceremony but is romantically linked to any women he's seen standing next to and it would have been awkward.

4.12pm - Michelle Williams urges women to vote

Michelle Williams won her second Golden Globe, from her sixth nomination, for her role as Gwenn Verdon in Fosse/Verdon. In a powerful speech accepting the award for best actress in a limited series or TV movie, she promoted abortion rights and exhorted women to make the most of their power at this year's looming US election.

"Women, please vote in your own self-interests. It's what men have been doing for years, which is why the world looks so much like them. Don't forget: we are the largest voting body in this country. Let's make it look more like us."

Williams took to the stage moments after Cate Blanchett's callout to volunteer firefighters battling "climate disaster" in Australia.

4.07pm – Sam Mendes and 1917 cause first upset

Sam Mendes has caused the first real upset of the night, collecting the award for Best Director – Motion Picture – for his World War One epic 1917.

Mendes beat out Tarantino, Bong Joon Ho (Parasite), Todd Phillips (Joker), and Martin Scorcese (The Irishman).

"That is a big surprise" he said in his speech, while admitting every other director in the room remains "in the shadow of Martin Scorsese."

Meanwhile, Olivia Colman had everyone in stitches when she collected the gong for Actress – TV Series – Drama for The Crown. Colman admitted in her speech that she'd had had a few drinks and was "a little boozy."

Patricia Arquette also claimed Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for The Act.

Arquette was also the first star to touch on the prospect of the US engaging in a war with Iran and delivered some brutal home truths to the audience and television audience.

3.12pm – Kiwi Anthony McCarten misses out to Quentin Tarantino

2.59pm – Ellen gets Carol Burnett Award

All the attention was on Ellen DeGeneres as she was recognised with a lengthy video montage before a standing ovation helped her up to receive the Carol Burnett Award. Elton John even gave a bit of a fit pump to mark her victory.

Degeneres made mention of the animal victims of the Australian bushfires, after Pierce Brosnan had earlier given his condolences to those who have suffered and are still battling the infernos.

"All of us at the Golden Globes and the HFPA send our thoughts to those affected by the bushfires in Australia," the former James Bond said.

2.41pm - Fleabag and Parasite take gold
