At the Golden Globes, streaming shows about women won big.

Rachel Brosnahan won best performance by an actress in a television series musical or comedy for Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and said in her speech that there need to be even more stories about women. The show also won best television series musical or comedy and creator Amy Sherman-Palladino referenced her Spanx and ended her speech by asking if there was cheese backstage.

Elisabeth Moss followed up her 2017 Emmy win for The Handmaid’s Tale with best performance by an actress in a drama series, and in her acceptance speech offered a revision on a quote from author Margaret Atwood’s source novel. She also thanked Atwood and other women who have been “brave enough to speak out against intolerance and injustice and to fight for equality and freedom in this world.”

On Twitter, people tweeted reminders that Moss is a Scientologist

The Handmaid’s Tale also won best drama series, and series creator Bruce Miller thanked all the people who work to “stop The Handmaid’s Tale from becoming real.”

Aziz Ansari won best performance by an actor in a television series musical or comedy for Netflix’s Master of None, and seemed baffled because “all the websites said I was going to lose.” A portion of his speech was bleeped out, but it turns out what he said wasn’t that bad. Shout out to Italian food.
