Last year, Amazon‘s Transparent was one of the big streaming winners at the Golden Globes. This year, it was another Amazon series. 

Mozart in the Jungle won for Best Television Series Comedy or Musical and its lead Gael Garcia Bernal won Best Actor in a Television Series Comedy or Musical. However, he was upstaged by Master of None‘s Aziz Ansari holding the book Losing to Jeffrey Tambor With Dignity when his name was announced.   

It’s an interesting spotlight shift to Mozart, a show about the classical music scene in NYC that doesn’t quite have the profile of Transparent, and snuck up on a lot of viewers. And people got their jokes in. 

Rachel Bloom won Best Actress in a TV Series Comedy or Musical for the CW’s sleeper hit Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, which she created an stars in, and while accepting, she mentioned getting her start on YouTube and how the CW swooped in and saved the show when other networks passed. She also gave a very enthusiastic acceptance speech that was basically an extension of her character, Rebecca.
