'Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' Wins Golden Globe for Best Comedy Series
By Philiana Ng
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel had a big night at the Golden Globes.
The charming 1950s Amazon dramedy, starring Rachel Brosnahan as a housewife-turned-aspiring standup, went two for two on Sunday, nabbing awards for Best Series and Best Actress for Brosnahan. (ET predicted that Mrs. Maisel would take home both.)
“Hollywood Foreign Press, thank you for inviting us to the dance,” co-creator Amy Sherman-Palladino said during her acceptance speech, before turning to the tireless people that made the show possible. “I want to thank our crew who turned New York into 1958 New York on a daily basis and nobody killed us or threw us out. Many food trucks are coming your way, I love you all.”
“I want to thank Amazon because their support was completely unwavering at all times. Every check cleared,” Sherman-Palladino said to chuckles from the audience. “We could not have found a better partner, thank you. We’re never leaving.”
Sherman-Palladino also spotlighted the stellar cast, singling out the main stars, Michael Zegen, Alex Borstein, Tony Shalhoub and Marin Hinkle, but specifically giving her leading lady special recognition: “Rachel Brosnahan, half-human, half-Tolkien character.”
And Sherman-Palladino ended her speech in only the way she could: “Is there cheese backstage?”
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, already renewed for a second season, beat out Master of None, Black-ish, SMILF and Will & Grace in the Best TV Series, Comedy or Musical category.
