In a night which has focused so heavily on giving voices to the voiceless (and even had handmaid protesters) it's fitting that The Handmaid's Tale won big at the 75th Annual Golden Globes.

On Sunday night, Hulu's adaptation of Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel The Handmaid's Tale continued their awards show victory lap which started at the 2017 Emmy Awards. At the Golden Globes, The Handmaid's Tale won two awards including Best Drama Series, beating out heavy-hitters like Game of Thrones and Stranger Things. Elisabeth Moss who portrays main character Offred in the show also won for Best Actress in a Drama.

The show was nominated for a total of three awards including one for Ann Dowd, who plays the terrifying Aunt Lydia for Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television. Dowd lost to Laura Dern for Dern's role in HBO's Big Little Lies.

The Handmaid's Tale tells the story of a future where women are judged based solely on their ability to reproduce. Upon accepting the award for Best Drama Series, writer and producer Bruce Miller told those who are working hard to prevent a real-life iteration of the show to keep working.

The Handmaid's Tale will be back in 2018. Praise be.
