LOS ANGELES: War epic 1917 shocked the Golden Globes on Sunday by claiming the top prize for best drama film, while Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood won the most honours.
1917 stole the show at the 77th annual Golden Globe Awards winning best drama as well as earning the directing honour for Sam Mendes. Martin Scorsese’s much-acclaimed Netflix crime saga “The Irishman” went home empty-handed.
“Goodness me, that is a big surprise,” said stunned filmmaker Sam Mendes, dedicating the film to his grandfather who signed up to fight aged just 17. “I hope he’s looking down on us and I fervently hope it never happens again.”

Brad Pitt won a Golden Globe for his work in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood”

Meanwhile, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood picked up three honours, for best comedy as well as supporting actor for Brad Pitt and Quentin Tarantino for screenplay.
I also have to thank my partner in crime, LDC,” said Pitt. “I wouldn’t be here without you, man… I would have shared the raft, though,” he added, referring to the closing scene of Titanic.
