Catch up with the last seven days in the world of film

The big story

You know the score: weird little statuettes, fulsome compliments and a few off-colour jokes, evening gowns and tears, yada yada yada. That's the normal run of things with the Golden Globes. Then Jodie Foster had to go and wreck everything by saying something that actually meant something.

Even though practically everyone on the planet already knew, Foster "came out" by thanking her ex-partner Cydney Bernard as she picked up a lifetime achievement award. Her speech prompted immediate dissection by the digital classes, with both pro and anti positions.

In the kerfuffle, everyone seemed to forget there was an awards ceremony going on, at which the Brits – especially Les Misérables – did rather well.

Here's what the Guardian film team thought.
