Golden Globes: Amazon's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Wins Best TV Comedy, Best Actress
  • First nomination and first win for the show
  • Brosnahan won Best Actress in Best TV Comedy
  • Amazon and Hulu tied for two Golden Globes apiece

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, an Amazon period comedy from Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, won two awards – Best TV Series (Musical or Comedy), and Best Actress in TV Series (Musical or Comedy) for Rachel Brosnahan – at the 2018 Golden Globes on Sunday evening in the US.

The show, which premiered back in March with a pilot and returned with its first full season late in November, won over Black-ish, Netflix's Master of None, SMILF, and the returning Will & Grace.

In the acting category, Brosnahan – who plays a 50s housewife trying her luck with stand-up comedy – beat out fellow nominees Pamela Adlon (Better Things), Alison Brie (GLOW), Issa Rae (Insecure), and Frankie Shaw (SMILF).

The Best TV Shows of 2017

Sherman-Palladino accepted the award, and thanked Amazon in her acceptance speech. “Their support was completely unwavering at all times,” she said. “Every check cleared. We’re never leaving.”

Amazon had a total of three nominations at the 2018 Golden Globes, winning two for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and losing the third for Best Actor in TV Series (Musical or Comedy), where Aziz Ansari won for his semi-autobiographical performance in Netflix's Master of None over Kevin Bacon (I Love Dick).

In the battle of streaming services, Amazon and Hulu tied for most wins (two apiece). The latter picked up Best TV Series (Drama) and Best Actress in TV Series (Drama) for The Handmaid's Tale. The only feather in Netflix's cap was Ansari's win.

The night's top honours – Best Picture in Musical/ Comedy, and Drama – went to Lady Bird, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, respectively.
