A Show You've Probably Never Heard Of Won Big At The Globes
Amazon's "Mozart in the Jungle" was one of the biggest TV winners at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards.By Lexie Hammesfahr | January 11, 2016
Sunday's Golden Globe Awards felt more like a ceremony to push out the old and usher in the new. And we're talking about the television categories, where only two awards went to network-affiliated shows.
In fact, the two shows that took home the most awards were both nominated for freshman seasons. "Mr. Robot" beat out shows like "Game of Thrones" and "Empire" in the drama and supporting actor categories. But that was more of a pleasant surprise. The USA show has become a critically acclaimed cult hit.
The real surprise was Amazon's "Mozart in the Jungle" beating out awards heavyweights like "Veep" and "Transparent" to win the top comedy award. The show's lead, Gael García Bernal, also won best performance by an actor in a television series, comedy or musical.
