Golden Globes: Rachel Brosnahan Praises "Matriarchy" on 'Mrs. Maisel' Set in Best Actress Speech
Brosnahan, who also won in the category last year for her role as the eponymous Mrs. Maisel, made a point to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for "being some of the first people to appreciate the show and figure out that we exist."
The actress was up against fellow nominees Kristen Bell (The Good Place), Candice Bergen (Murphy Brown), Alison Brie (GLOW) and Debra Messing (Will & Grace) for the honor.
Brosnahan, who also won in the category last year for her role as the eponymous Mrs. Maisel, made a point to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for "being some of the first people to appreciate the show and figure out that we exist." She also praised "the incredible village" on set as "a matriarchy."
She also thanked her co-stars, including Alex Borstein, Tony Shalhoub, Marin Hinkle and Michael Zegen, saying that she is "so grateful each and every day" to work on the show.
Brosnahan's win comes after the show cleaned up at the 2018 Emmys, where it won eight awards including outstanding comedy series. It was nominated for best comedy series at the Globes Sunday night as well, but lost to The Kominsky Method.
Backstage, Brosnahan said the show is ultimately "about a woman finding her voice in a brand new way," adding, "it has been so lovely to hear from different ages and races and backgrounds who have connected to so many of the characters." As for the upcoming season 3 of the Amazon comedy, Brosnahan said she didn't have anything to share yet. "It only exists in Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino's brain."
