BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — The fierce revenge tale “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” has won the Golden Globe Award for best film drama.
Frances McDormand stars as a raging mother seeking answers for her daughter’s murder. Directed by Martin McDonagh, the film has garnered widespread praise for McDormand’s fierce performance.
The film won the honor moments after McDormand won the Globe award for best actress in a film drama. Sam Rockwell also won the Globe award for best-supporting actor.
Frances McDormand is the winner of the best actress in a drama film for her role in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”
McDormand plays the mother seeking justice for her daughter, who was raped and killed and takes on the small town police force who she doesn’t believe is doing enough to solve the case.
The actress accepted the award saying she would buy tequila for all the other nominees in the category.
She also ribbed the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which hands out the Globes, saying she still didn’t know who they are but credited them for electing a female president.
