NBC aired the 74th edition of Golden Globes. It was a night full of great moments and surprises. There were many unexpected winners: for example on the TV side Claire Foy and "The Crown" won big with two awards for best actress and best TV drama. "Atlanta" and Donald Glover took over the comedy category.

"The Night Manager" and "American Crime Story: People v. O.J. Simpson" were the blessed one in the mini-series category.

This edition of the Golden Globes will be remembered also for the powerful and emotional speeches delivered by the winning actors. Let's summarize the most poignant ones.

Viola Davis, Casey Affleck, Ryan Gosling and Barry Jenkins dedicated the win to their family

Family matters and this group of actors didn't forget about their loved ones. The most emotional speech was delivered by Gosling. He won the award for "La La Land" and he paid emotional tribute to his girlfriend Eva Mendes who was pregnant with their second child and was assisting his brother while he was shooting the Chazelle's musical.

“If she hadn’t taken all that on so that I could have this experience, it would surely be someone else up here other than me today. Sweetheart, thank you.”

Casey Affleck thanked his family as well, especially his two kids who let him play this difficult but powerful role in "Manchester by the Sea". Viola Davis shared a story about her family: she was raised in poor conditions and his father learned how to read when he was fifteen years old. It was just an emotional moment.

Barry Jenkins won with his "Moonlight" the best drama picture award and dedicated this prize to his mom who gave him life and he stated: "I hope being on the stage right now is the fulfillment of the life that you gave me."

Emma Stone and Meryl Streep shined

Emma Stone's speech was all about dreams: she shared her prize with everyone who has had a door slammed in their face, encouraging them not to give up on their dreams as she didn't.

Meryl Streep won the lifetime achievement Cecille B. DeMille award and she delivered a powerful message against violence and discrimination: she attacked Trump, saying that "when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose". She also quoted Carrie Fisher by ending her speech with tears in her eyes: take your broken heart and make it into art.
