The Golden Globes is, outside of the Emmys, television’s most significant prize-giving event and, not unexpectedly, streaming services and cable TV cleaned up while traditional broadcast shows went away with exactly one (well-deserved) award.
Here’s what won and how you can watch:
Best drama series went to the first season of the Netflix series “The Crown,” all of which is currently streaming on the ever-increasingly-powerful service. (Claire Foy also won best actress in a drama for her role as Queen Elizabeth in the show.)
The stunning first season of the FX comedy “Atlanta” won for best comedy, and its insanely talented creator Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) picked up a best actor in a comedy trophy.
Sadly, the whole thing can not longer be seen on the FXNow app (cable login required). Nor can “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” which won best television movie or miniseries. (Sarah Paulson won best actress in a miniseries in her role as Marcia Clarke for “O.J.,” for which she also picked up an Emmy). Both can now be purchased on Amazon.
The AMC miniseries “The Night Manager,” based on the John le Carré novel of the same name, picked up three acting awards: best actor in a mini for Tom Hiddleston, best supporting actress for the perpetually underrated Olivia Colman and best supporting actor for Hugh Laurie. The totally excellent thriller can be found on Amazon Prime.
Amazon is also the home of “Goliath,” for which Billy Bob Thornton picked up lead actor in a drama.
And last but very much not least, we come to Tracee Ellis Ross, who won best actress in a comedy or musical for her role as Dr. Rainbow Johnson in the wonderful ABC comedy “Black-ish,” which deserves absolutely every viewer it gets. It’s in the middle of its third season, and its writing has never been stronger. Check out all three seasons on Hulu.
