LADY Gaga suffered a shock defeat in the Best Picture and Best Actress categories of tonight's Golden Globes.

A Star Is Born's leading lady still walked away with a gong for Best Song, however, the biggest prize of the night went to Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody while Glenn Close pipped her to Best Actress.

British stars had a particularly golden evening with the likes of Olivia Colman, Richard Madden and Christian Bale all landing awards.

The ceremony saw a return to looks of colour on the red carpet after last year's show of #MeToo solidarity in black.

Stars of film and television attended the award show at the Beverly Hilton Hotel  in Los Angeles yesterday to watch as the Brits took over – winning big on stage and stealing the show on the red carpet.

On the red carpet some attendees were spotted wearing ribbons that read TIMESUPx2, to highlight the second year of the gender equality campaign.

Viewers went wild as Killing Eve star Jodie Comer  posed up with the ceremony's host and her co-star Sandra Oh - as they were delighted to see the onscreen enemies getting on well in real life.

They were joined on the red carpet by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who wrote Killing Eve.

Another highlight for viewers was the 'Water Girl', who ended up going viral as she ended up photobombing a lot of pictures as she handed out Fiji water.

Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg kicked off the ceremony by joking they were chosen because they were "the only people left in Hollywood who haven't got in trouble for saying something offensive".

The went on to make a series of amusing jokes – including one at Lady Gaga’s expense as they referenced her now famous ‘100 people’ speech about Bradley Coopers support.

Jim Carrey also provided the laughs in a skit when he got booted out of the "movie section" because he's now in TV show Kidding.

Not everything at viewers in stitches though - and some were left baffled when Sandra and Andy started dishing out 'flu jabs' to the A-list guests.

Some of the stars were visibly uncomfortable as people dressed as doctors in white coats approached them in the audience to give them the shot just before the ceremony cut to a commercial break.

The Golden Globes gave Queen musical Bohemian Rhapsody its top prize in an unexpected victory over romance A Star is Born.

In a night of upsets, Rami Malek won best drama actor for his role as late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, and Glenn Close won for The Wife over presumed favourite Lady Gaga in A Star is Born.

Lady Gaga, whose role in the movie was her first lead part after a successful music career, won best original song for Shallow.

She was presented the award by Taylor Swift, who skipped the red carpet earlier in the evening and Idris Elba, whose daughter proved herself to be  star.

British actors Olivia Colman (The Favourite) and Christian Bale (Vice) took home the lead comedy movie acting awards.

Olivia, 44, giggled her way through her acceptance speech and paid tribute to her co-stars Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, who she jokingly hailed her "bitches".

She said: "I'm not going to cry because my whole table will laugh at me. Thank you for the sandwiches.
