Ahead of Sunday's 75th annual Golden Globes, the Hollywood Handmaids, derived from Hulu's original series The Handmaid's Tale, made their debut standing outside the Beverly Hilton to support the Time's Up movement and protest gender inequality and sexual harassment.

Elisabeth Moss brought down the house Sunday night with her acceptance speech for her Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series Drama.

Ms. Moss, who was raised in Scientology, has defended her beliefs in the past, telling an Instagram user in August that "religious freedom and tolerance and understanding the truth and equal rights for every race, religion and creed are extremely important" to her.

At a Golden Globes ceremony largely defined by political conversations, many award winners made references to sexism and the importance of speaking truth to power. "The Handmaid's Tale" has felt particularly timely as talk of the treatment of women in society dominates headlines amid a flood of sexual misconduct allegations. Accepting the award, he concluded by saying, "To all the people in this room, and this country, and this world who do everything they can to stop The Handmaid's Tale from becoming real, keep doing that".

'We no longer live in the blank white spaces at the edge of print. Supporting nods went to Sam Rockwell for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Alison Janney for I, Tonya.

This is from Margaret Atwood: "We were the people who were not in the papers". That went to Laura Dern, who capped off a big year be being recognized for her role as Renata Klein in Big Little Lies. "We lived in the gaps between the stories", Moss quoted. She previously took home the limited series or TV movie actress trophy in 2014 for her work in Sundance TV's "Top of the Lake". Not so much. In a category filled with esteemed veterans, look for the most veteran and most esteemed to take the prize. "So as we enter this new year, please let's continue to hold each other accountable and invest in and make and champion these stories".
