'Roma' wins best foreign film Golden Globe

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- "Roma" is the winner of the best foreign language film Golden Globe Award.

    The Netflix film directed by Alfonso Cuaron based on the nanny who raised him in the 1970s in Mexico is among the favorites for the Academy Award for best picture. It would likely have also been a favorite for the Golden Globe for best picture-drama, but the awards' rules made it ineligible.

    The film's director and writer Alfonso Cuaron thanked the film's star, first-time actress Yalitza Aparicio, saying he was stunned by the work she did.

    He also in Spanish thanked his family, and his native Mexico.
