Once Upon A Time In Hollywood Wins Best​ Motion Picture At Golden Globes

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood Wins Best​ Motion Picture At Golden Globes

Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time In Hollywood has scooped the award for Best Motion Picture (comedy/musical) at this year's Golden Globes.

The hit movie was always bound to be massive, with a huge five nominations in this year's awards, and it managed to beat the likes of Knives Out and Rocketman to scoop the coveted prize.

The movie, which stars Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, smashed the director's own record, taking an estimated $40.4m (£32.7m) between the Friday and Sunday during its US release, smashing the $30m (£24.3m) Sony predicted it would bring in.

The impressive box office takings mean the film has beaten Tarantino's previous highest-grossing opening, for Inglorious Basterds, which took $38m in 2009.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is set in 1969 and centres on former TV actor Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt), who move to LA in an attempt to crack Hollywood.

However, they end up moving in next door to Sharon Tate (played by Margot Robbie), the wife of director Roman Polanski, who was infamously killed in the Manson Family murders.

In the film Charles Manson is played by a very creepy-looking Damon Herriman.

In a statement released last year, Tarantino said: "I've been working on this script for five years, as well as living in Los Angeles County most of my life, including in 1969, when I was seven years old.

"I'm very excited to tell this story of an LA and a Hollywood that don't exist anymore. And I couldn't be happier about the dynamic teaming of DiCaprio and Pitt as Rick and Cliff."

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood was nominated for five awards at this year's Golden Globes, which were held at the Beverly Hills Hilton in Hollywood and hosted once again - and potentially for his last time after that Epstein joke Epstein joke - by Ricky Gervais.

The film was up against Dolemite Is My Name, Jojo Rabbit, Knives Out and Rocketman.
