Also: 'The Theory of Everything' wins best original score

Prince graced the Golden Globes stage to give away the award for best original song, which went to John Legend and Common for "Glory" from Selma.

"I want to thank God and the Hollywood Foreign Press," began Common.

"I am the hopeful black woman who was denied the right to vote. I am the caring white supporter," added Common. "I am the unarmed black kid, who maybe needed a hand, but instead of, was given a bullet."

"Selma has awakened my humanity," he continued, thanking Ava DuVernay, Oprah Winfrey and more.

"I'm so honored to be a part of this amazing film," said Legend. "We're so grateful to write this song."

In the best original score category, Sienna Miller and Vince Vaughn presented the award to Johann Johannsson for The Theory Of Everything.
