We're privileged. We get to tell stories. "Now we have a chance to be heard and we're all doing it, trying to elicit change", said the actress, who also executive produced the HBO limited series with Reese Witherspoon.
The acclaimed HBO drama won a whopping four Golden Globes - including Best Limited Series/TV Movie and acting trophies for stars Nicole Kidman, Alexander Skarsgard and Laura Dern - and it finally confirmed last month that it will be returning for a second season. However, they have a nomination in all the major categories including Best Drama Series, Sterling K. Brown for Best Actor and Chrissy Metz for Best Supporting Actress.
Meanwhile, "Three Billbords Outside Ebbing, Missouri" picked up the coveted Best Motion Picture, Drama accolade, as well as Best Screenplay, while Frances McDormand took home Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama and her co-star Sam Rockwell won Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture. The Globes also repeated the Emmys in giving awards to Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale" for best drama and Elisabeth Moss of that series as best actress. She quoted novelist Margaret Atwood, whose book provides the basis for the series, in accepting her award.
Without any actors in the running for Best Actor for a Limited Series, Miniseries or TV Movie, Big Little Lies had only one award left to win.

The ad includes a photo of Trevor as well as some quotes calling the show "monotonous ... liberal dogma" and "a fake news show". Stephen Colbert also got in on the act, purchasing a billboard in Times Square to make sure he would not get snubbed.
Kidman plays Celeste Wright, a woman who is beaten by her husband. But when they started planning for Season 2, she says, "unfortunately, he was busy". Besides the awards for "Big Little Lies" and "The Handmaid's Tale", Sterling K. Brown of NBC's "This is Us" was a repeat victor from the Emmys. Perhaps that's why some of the other cast members got snubbed, but the Golden Globes don't matter too much for this show. "Speaking out without the fear of retribution is our culture's new North Star", said Dern.
One of Hollywood's quirkiest and most powerful female creators, Amy Sherman-Palladino, is behind the series. We couldn't have found a better partner. Brown also thanked creator Dan Fogelman for "writing a role for a black man". "You are so fearless", she said.
"It makes it that much more hard to dismiss me, or dismiss anybody who looks like me", Brown said.
