Golden Globes Most Shocking Moments: 5 Biggest Surprise Wins From 2017 Award Ceremony [VIDEO]

The Golden Globes always like to throw in some curveballs when revealing their winners, so let's take a look at the five most shocking wins of this year's ceremony.

The Golden Globes aired Sunday night and featured a number of surprising victories in the midst of some predictable winners. While Oscar frontrunners like Casey Affleck, Emma Stone and Viola Davis picked up trophies, the night featured big upsets in both film and television categories.

Here are the victories we were most surprised by from the 2017 Golden Globes:

5. Tracee Ellis Ross (Best Actress in a Television Series - Musical or Comedy)
 

While we actually predicted Ross would win the Golden Globe, most pundits were wrong about this category. Many had been picking Issa Rae from Insecure, Sarah Jessica Parker from Divorce or Julia Louis-Dreyfus for Veep rather than Ross. So even we were surprised when Ross, whose show, black-ish, is in its third season, won the award considering her strong competition, but she ended up giving out of the best speeches of the night.

4. The Night Manager (acting category sweep)
 

It looks like the Hollywood Foreign Press Association really liked The Night Manager considering they gave its three stars, Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie and Olivia Colman, trophies on Sunday. We thought People vs. O.J. Simpson would be the limited series to sweep, if any, but Hiddleston won Best Actor in a Limited Series or TV Movie, Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Limited Series or TV Movie and Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Limited Series or TV Movie.

3. Isabelle Huppert (Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama)
 

Most pundits were predicting that Natalie Portman's meticulous performance as Jackie Kennedy in Jackie would net her the Golden Globe here, but renowned actress Isabelle Huppert took home the victory for her bold performance in Elle. We're not complaining, however, considering Huppert gave what many consider to be the best performance of the year.

2. La La Land (complete sweep)
 

The HFPA loved La La Land - like, really loved La La Land. They loved it so much that La La Land is now the winningest movie in the Golden Globes 74-year history. The musical, set in Los Angeles, took home a whopping seven awards on Sunday, including Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, Best Director for Damien Chazelle, Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy for Ryan Gosling, Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy for Emma Stone, Best Screenplay for Chazelle, Best Original Score for Justin Hurwitz and Best Original Song for "City of Stars". Considering the Globes usually like to spread the wealth, this sweep was a real shocker.

1. Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture)
 

Let's be honest, who saw Aaron Taylor-Johnson coming? The actor won for his supporting turn in Nocturnal Animals despite widely being considered out of the race, with most pundits predicting Mahershala Ali from Moonlight and a select few predicting Jeff Bridges from Hell or High Water or Dev Patel from Lion. Nobody was predicting a Taylor-Johnson win, so even though it may have messed up a lot of predicting ballots, it was interesting to have everyone be wrong about at least one category Sunday night.
