The 2016 PRWeek Global Awards ceremony was held in London on Thursday night. Winners included Weber Shandwick, Golin, Ketchum, Ogilvy, and MSLGroup. PRWeek managing editor Gideon Fidelzeid and news editor Frank Washkuch run down who won what and why.

Fashion designer Rachel Roy found herself beset by fans of Beyonce Knowles after the singer released her latest album, "Lemonade." The first single, "Sorry," includes lyrics that refer to a "Becky with the good hair" who is implied to have had an affair with Beyonce’s husband, Jay Z. Roy later posted on Instagram, describing herself as having "good hair," causing some fans to believe she was the inspiration for Beyonce’s lyrics. PRWeek senior reporter Diana Bradley spoke with PR pros about how Roy has handled the controversy.

Plus: a preview of PRWeek’s 2016 Global Agency Business Report, PRWeek and Campaign US’s inaugural Brand Film Festival, and more.
