Amazon, USA Top Golden Globe TV Winners as Broadcast Takes Home Only Two

Sunday's 73rd annual Golden Globe awards delivered a number of surprises on the TV side, rewarding several first-time nominees and freshman series and shutting out Netflix, which entered the night with a leading eight nominations. Amazon and USA Network tied for the lead with two wins apiece for their respective Mozart in the Jungle and Mr. Robot

Broadcast television took home only two wins total — for leading ladies Rachel Bloom in The CW's critical darling Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Taraji P. Henson in Fox's Empire. The CW musical dramedy ranks as broadcast television's lowest-rated series by a wide margin and comes hours after network president Mark Pedowitz expressed patience that the show would find an audience at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour. 

On the series side, Mozart in the Jungle went two-for-two, while Mr. Robot — which won two of three save for star Rami Malek — led the pack. Mr. Robot's wins also helped propel studio Universal Cable Productions to a tie at the top among the studio tally, joining Amazon Studios (Mozart) and 20th Century Fox Television (American Horror Story: Hotel and Empire).

Critical darlings Fargo, American Crime, Transparent and Outlander — which tied for the lead with three apiece — went home empty handed.
