Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and wartime thriller 1917 were the big film winners at the Golden Globes in Beverly Hills on Sunday night, with disappointment for Irish star Saoirse Ronan in the acting categories.

Tarantino's 1969-set epic won the awards for Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy), with the director winning Best Screenplay and star Brad Pitt wining Best Supporting Actor.

During his acceptance speech, Pitt said he wanted to bring his mother to the ceremony but was unable to because "any woman I stand next to they say I'm dating, [it would] just be awkward". 

He concluded his speech by saying: "Hey, if you see a chance to be kind to someone tomorrow, take it. I think we need it." 

1917, which opens in Irish cinemas on Friday, won the Best Picture (Drama) Award and Best Director for Sam Mendes.

Mendes dedicated his Best Director award to his grandfather, Alfred Hubert Mendes, who inspired the film.

"He signed up for the First World War, he was aged 17," Mendes continued. "And I hope he's looking down on us. And I hope, I fervently hope, it never, ever happens again."  

In the Drama acting categories, favourite Renée Zellweger took home Best Actress - the category in which Little Women star Saoirse Ronan was also nominated - for her performance in the biopic Judy, with Joaquin Phoenix awarded Best Actor for his performance in Joker.

The supervillain character study was also honoured with the Best Score award for composer Hildur Guðnadóttir.

Laura Dern won Best Supporting Actress for Marriage Story. The Netflix-made relationship drama led the nominations with six, but Dern's award was its only win on the night.

Awkwafina won the award for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy for her role in the bittersweet family story The Farewell, with Taron Egerton winning Best Actor for his portrayal of Elton John in the biopic Rocketman.  

Accepting her award, Awkwafina said: "If I fall upon hard times I can sell this, so that's good." 

"I'd like to dedicate this to my dad, Wally," she continued. "I told you I'd get a job, dad. To my grandma, my best friend, the woman who raised me. And to my mother, Tia, who I always hoped was watching from somewhere above and I hope that she's watching now."  

Elton John was also among the winners, sharing the Best Original Song award with songwriting partner Bernie Taupin for I'm Gonna Love Me Again from Rocketman.

The award for Best Foreign Language Film went to the black comedy Parasite, with Missing Link winning Best Animated Feature.

In the television categories, The Crown, Fleabag and Chernobyl were among the winners.

Tom Hanks was honoured with the Cecil B DeMille Award for his contribution to the film industry. Ellen DeGeneres was honoured with the Carol Burnett Award for her work in television.
