Moonlight Wins Golden Globe for Best Dramatic Movie
Consummate American actress Meryl Streep received the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement Sunday at the 2017 Golden Globe awards.
Upon receiving the award, however, Streep talked about a "real life" performance that "broke her heart" this year - Donald Trump's criticism and imitation of a disabled New York Times reporter. She then talked about the need for a "principled press" as a check on Trump's power.
Coming-of-age Moonlight won the award for best motion picture drama, while the whimsical musical La La Land won for best musical or comedy motion picture.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association's annual awards are a draw for filmmakers and actors looking to create some buzz ahead of February's Academy Awards.
Former Iranian President Rafsanjani Dies at Age of 82
Iranian state television has announced the death of former president and leading reformer Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani.
afsanjani, 82 and suffering from heart ailments, died Sunday at a hospital north of Tehran.
Rafsanjani, who served as president from 1989 to 1997, was earlier seen as a top adviser to Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the leader of the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
Rafsanjani's presidency saw the country seeking to rebuild its economy from the ruinous 1980-1988 war with neighboring Iraq. It was also marked by a series of cautious reforms which saw wider freedoms emerge, particularly in the country's tightly controlled media.
The government has announced three days of mourning, making Tuesday a public holiday for his funeral in Tehran.
