- In the Fade stars Diane Kruger in her first role
- "This is yours," the director told Diane Kruger
- The film shines a spotlight on the violence of neo-Nazis
The film triumphed in a category that included Swedish black comedy The Square, which took the Palme d'Or at Cannes, and First They Killed My Father, the true story of a Cambodian child soldier directed by Angelina Jolie.
In the Fade stars Diane Kruger in her first role in her native German as a woman seeking answers to the killings of her Turkish-born husband and son.
She won the best actress award at Cannes. Accepting the Golden Globe, In the Fade director saluted Kruger and said: "This is yours."
The film shines a spotlight on the violence of neo-Nazis, who have come into a growing international spotlight after a white nationalist rally in August in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Speaking to AFP ahead of the Golden Globes, Kruger said that the movie felt "overwhelming" when she first saw it at a screening.
In the Fade is based on the song by the California desert rockers Queens of the Stone Age, whose main member Josh Homme composed the score.
