Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri won the Golden Globe for best screenplay at Sunday’s awards ceremony.
McDonagh wrote and directed the dark comedy-drama, which stars Frances McDormand as a mother who publicly calls out the local police department when they fail to solve her daughter’s rape and murder.
In all, Three Billboards was nominated for six Golden Globes, including best drama, best drama actress for McDormand, best supporting actor for Sam Rockwell, best director for McDonagh, and best original score for composer Carter Burwell. Rockwell won in his category earlier on Sunday night.
Three Billboards beat out fellow nominees The Post, Molly’s Game, The Shape of Water, and Lady Bird in the screenplay category.
