It was the limited series' fourth win of the night, after Nicole Kidman, Alexander Skarsgard and Laura Dern all won acting prizes.

Big Little Lies bagged the Golden Globe for best television miniseries or motion picture made for television on Sunday night.

The miniseries beat out FX's Fargo, FX's Feud: Bette and Joan, USA Network's The Sinner and Sundance TV's Top of the Lake: China Girl. It is the limited series' fourth win of the night, after Nicole Kidman, Alexander Skarsgard and Laura Dern each won acting prizes.

As she accepted the award, Big Little Lies star and executive producer Reese Witherspoon said, "This show is so much about the life that we present to ourselves [and how] that could be very different from the life we present to the rest of the world."

Witherspoon added, "Hopefully more shows like this will be made so people who experience harassment and abuse can speak up. We see you, we hear you, and we can tell your stories."

Backstage, Witherspoon addressed the reason why Big Little Lies' second season will be directed by American Honey filmmaker Andrea Arnold instead of the first season's director, Jean Marc Vallee. "Unfortunately, he was busy," Witherspoon said. "We did try and accommodate but we wanted to get the second season started soon because I do think the public wants it soon."

Seth Meyers hosted the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards, which took place at the Beverly Hilton on Jan. 7.
