Golden Globes: 'Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' Wins Best TV Comedy or Musical
The Amazon rookie beat out the revived 'Will & Grace' at Sunday's ceremony.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel took home the Golden Globe for best television series, comedy or musical, during Sunday night's ceremony.
Amazon's rookie series beat out Black-ish, Master of None, SMILF and the revived Will & Grace to win the award.
"Every check cleared," joked creator Amy Sherman-Palladino about series home Amazon, which has seen recent executive shifts, when accepting the award. "We could not have found a better partner; we're never leaving."
Will & Grace never took home a Golden Globe trophy despite collecting numerous other awards, including Emmys, during its original eight-season run from 1998 to 2006. The rebooted NBC comedy, starring Debra Messing and best actor nominee Eric McCormack, has been nominated a total of 29 times, including this year's nods.
Amazon's Maisel and Showtime's SMILF each earned first-season nominations. ABC's Black-ish was nominated in the same category last year, as was Master of None after its first season in 2016.
Heading into Sunday's show, Maisel, from Gilmore Girls creator Sherman-Palladino, was a leading favorite, with THR predicting a close race between the Rachel Brosnahan starrer and Frankie Shaw's SMILF. The last five winners in the category were all first-year series.
First-time nominee Brosnahan took home the best actress award in the TV comedy or musical category earlier in the night. In her speech, she encouraged creators to tell more stories of complicated women in 2018.
"This is a story about a bold and brilliant and complicated woman, and I am so endlessly proud to be a part of it. But there are so many women's stories out there that still need and deserve to be told," she said of her period drama. "So as we enter into this new year please let's continue to hold each other accountable and invest in and champion and make these stories."
