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.
