La La Land has broken the record for the most Golden Globe Awards after winning seven prizes.
The musical won every award it was nominated for – including best musical or comedy film, best director, screenplay, score and song.
Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling also won in the acting categories.
The Globes are always seen as pointers to the Oscars.
Moonlight was named best drama film, while Casey Affleck and Isabelle Huppert won other acting prizes.
Casey Affleck was named best actor in a film drama for his role in Manchester By The Sea and Isabelle Huppert was the surprise winner of the award for best film drama actress.
Isabelle Huppert’s performance in thriller Elle – which was also named best foreign language film – beat contenders including Natalie Portman, who had been considered the favorite for playing Jackie Kennedy in Jackie.
Viola Davis was named best supporting film actress in Fences – a role she first played on Broadway six years ago.
Fences is an adaptation of the August Wilson play, which explores race relations in post-war America.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson was named best supporting actor for his role in Nocturnal Animals – a prize that had been widely expected to go to Mahershala Ali for Moonlight.
Zootopia was named best animated feature film at January 8ceremony, which was hosted by Jimmy Fallon.
Jimmy Fallon’s opening monologue was less risqué than those of some of his predecessors, but he still found time to make light of the divisive year in US politics.
He joked that the Golden Globes ceremony was “one of the few places left where America still honors the popular vote” – a reference to Donald Trump beating Hillary Clinton in the recent election despite getting fewer votes overall.
Jimmy Fallon also described grief-stricken film Manchester By The Sea as “the only thing more depressing than 2016”.
This year’s Golden Globes ceremony featured several references to Donald Trump – not least when Meryl Streep launched an attack on the president-elect while accepting the Cecil B. Demille award for outstanding contribution to entertainment.
Meryl Streep referred to Donald Trump’s mocking of a disabled reporter and said: “Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others we all lose.”
The Golden Globe Awards, which are run by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, honor the best in TV and movie from the past year.
The nominations for 2013 Academy Awards will be revealed two weeks earlier than this year’s were.
The next year nominees will be unveiled on 10 January – five days earlier than normal and three days ahead of the Golden Globes.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) said it would “provide members and the public a longer period of time to see the nominated films”.
The 85th Academy Awards will be held in Hollywood on 24 February.

In recent years the Golden Globe Awards, hosted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), have preceded the Oscar nominations announcement.
According to industry website Deadline Hollywood, bringing the latter forward could “blunt the impact” of the HFPA event.
“The Academy’s nomination announcement will get enormous attention just as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is drumming up attention for its own big night,” wrote columnist Pete Hammond.
In The Hollywood Reporter, Scott Feinberg suggested the Academy’s board of governors hoped “to grab back some of the thunder that has been stolen in recent years by the ever-increasing number of awards shows”.
The changes, he said, “could have a major impact on awards season and on the viewing experiences of the Academy’s own members”.
As part of the Oscars shake-up, many of the Academy’s 6,000 members will also have the opportunity to vote online for the first time.
From 17 December a new system will allow them to vote on their preferred films, actors and technical film achievements by email.
The Directors Guild of America (DGA) had planned to announce its award nominations on 10 January but will now do so two days earlier.
