"But their time is up", she added, earning a standing ovation."I want all the girls watching here and now to know that a new day is on the horizon", she added.

Yes, there were a bunch of awards given out last night in Hollywood at the 75th Annual Golden Globes, but who won what took a back seat to who said what, as the evening was punctuated with passionate and heartfelt speeches from women praising and championing the #MeToo movement and Time's Up initiative.

McDormand was again bleeped when she spoke of the "tectonic shift" in Hollywood that has seen the treatment of women thrust into the spotlight.
