Moonlight wins Golden Globe Award
Moonlight tells the story of a gay teen’s coming of age

After being shutout throughout the night, Moonlight rebounded at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards to take the biggest prize of Best Motion Picture-Drama.

The coming of age movie about a black gay teen took the award over fellow nominees Hacksaw Ridge, Hell or High Water, Lion and Manchester by the Sea.

Writer-director Barry Jenkins said while accepting the award: ‘To my mom, Denzel [Washington] says in Fences: “I gave you everything. I gave you your life.” Mom, you gave me my life, and I hope being on this stage right now is fulfillment of the life that you gave me.’

Jenkins then added: ‘And to everyone on Twitter and Instagram, everyone back home in Miami and New Orleans, if you have seen this film, if you have told a friend – all I ever say is please, tell a friend, tell a friend, tell a friend.’

Moonlight had been nominated for six Globes overall including two nods for Jenkins in the writing and directing category, Naomie Harris for supporting actress, Mahershala Ali for supporting actor and a nomination for best original score.
