Golden Globe winners who have gone on to win the Oscar

  Golden Globe winners who have gone on to win the Oscar Though the voting process of The Golden Globes is very different from the one that chooses Academy Award winners, the lists of winners are often eerily similar.In 2017, Emma Stone, Casey Affleck, Viola Davis, animated film Zootopia and La La Land director Damien Chazelle all came out on the winning end of an award season pattern that has been predicting Oscar winners since the Golden Globes began in 1950. They all won the Golden Globe and Oscar that they were up for.

At the Golden Globes on Sunday night, actor Ewan McGregor found himself in that very position — and opted to thank both his estranged wife and girlfriend in his speech.

There are plenty of moments we’re reliving over and over again after yesterday’s Golden Globe awards.

THAT Oprah speech (and the news that she’s “seriously considering” running for the US presidency in 2020). Natalie Portman’s scathing two-word comment during the Best Director award.

The hundreds of actresses who chose to wear black in solidarity for the victims of harassment and abuse.

And, of course, Hugh Jackman sporting the most disappointed face we ever did see.

But there’s another moment that’s caught the attention of the public: when Fargo star Ewan McGregor, 51, appeared to thank both his wife and girlfriend while accepting the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television.

While at first glance (or rather, first listen) the idea sounds rather awkward, there's more to the story than meets the eye.

After 22 years of marriage, McGregor and Eve Mavrakis, a production manager whom he met on set in 1995, revealed they had separated in October when news that McGregor had started dating his Fargo co-star, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, broke.

The characters McGregor and 33-year-old Winstead play on Fargo are dating, and it appeared their on-screen romance had spilled over into real life.

While it's not known whether McGregor and Mavrakis were separated or estranged before his new romance, the production designer has only addressed her husband's new relationship once. Replying to a fan's comment on Instagram, which blasted McGregor for leaving his wife and children for a younger woman, Mavrakis simply wrote, "What can I do?"

But before the world yesterday, in his Golden Globe acceptance speech, McGregor paid tribute to his wife.

"I want to take a moment to just say thank you to Eve, who always stood by me for 22 years," he said.

"And my four children, Clara, Esther, Jamyan and Anouk- I love you."

"There would have been no Ray without Mary Elizabeth Winstead, so thank you very much."

It's hardly the first time a famous face has uttered the names of their wife and girlfriend within the same breath: last year, a video of soccer star Mohammed Anas went viral when he said he wanted to thank his "wife and girlfriend".
