Martin McDonagh took home the Golden Globe for best screenplay for his film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri at Sunday's 75th annual awards show. He also directed the film and was nominated for best director.

McDonagh beat out fellow nominees Liz Hannah and Josh Singer for The Post, Aaron Sorkin for Molly's Game, Guillermo del Toro and Vanessa Taylor for The Shape of Water, and Greta Gerwig for Lady Bird.

McDonagh wished his mother happy birthday, even though "she wanted Lady Bird to win," and also thanked his film's stars Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson and Golden Globe best supporting actor winner Sam Rockwell.
