The Golden Globes award found itself the center of controversy over a lack of diversity among its top ranks, prompting NBC to pull the plug on airing the ceremony last year. This year’s event took place behind closed doors and the winners were announced with some historic and notable first-time wins for some.

As the Hollywood Foreign Press Association continues to wrestle with its image and revamp itself, the decision to move ahead with the ceremony was done under the veil of separation with no outside press or guests in the building. The event was held at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles, Calif.

Below is the full winner’s list:
