The Handmaid's Tale wins Golden Globe for best drama series

"I think our biggest challenged as a group is just trying to do this incredible book justice", she said, referring to the 1985 novel by Margaret Atwood that inspired the series. We lived in the blank white spaces at the edge of print.

The speech was praised in some circles as a feminist rallying cry, but many social media users discounted her words as hollow due to her continued affiliation with the Church of Scientology. We no longer live in the gaps between the stories. After a short gap Elisabeth added: "Margaret Atwood, this is for you and for all the women before and after you, who were able to speak out against intolerance an injustice and to fight for equality and freedom in the world".

"We no longer live in the blank white spaces at the edge of print". "So as we enter this new year, please let's continue to hold each other accountable and invest in and make and champion these stories". "And we are writing them ourselves".

In "The Handmaid's Tale", Elisabeth plays a woman forced into a life of sexual servitude as one of the few remaining fertile females, and she thinks the dystopian saga of oppression struck a chord with many people in the present day. The HBO series has the most number of nominations (6) for any TV series at the 75th Golden Globe Awards.

Toronto-based Atwood wasn't at the Golden Globes due to "age-related energy depletion", as she tweeted on Saturday. "Hovering in spirit from the 10 below snow", Atwood tweeted Sunday night, along with a photo of herself standing outside.

Best actor in a television drama series went to Sterling K. Brown for This Is Us.

The show was also nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category for Ann Dowd's performance as Aunt Lydia, but lost out to Laura Dern (Big Little Lies). I've seen every single one of their shows. The 88-year-old got the nomination a mere month after he'd replaced Kevin Spacey as billionaire J. Paul Getty in Ridley Scott's finished biographical drama.

While many fields are wide open, James Franco (The Disaster Artist) is nearly certain to win best actor in a musical/comedy movie ahead of Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out).

Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television: The voters reportedly loved "The Sinner", but this is probably another category where the reigning Emmy champ will be too much of an event to ignore.
