The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel wins two Golden Globes

Oprah was seated near the stage at the Golden Globes

On Monday, the hilarious new series scored two Golden Globe awards for best comedy TV series and best actress in a comedy or musical for its star, Rachel Brosnahan.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is written and directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino (Gilmore Girls). This is the third time Amazon has won in this category: In 2016, Mozart in the Jungle won, and in 2015, Transparent took home the hardware.

Just a couple months after premiering to critical praise, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel took the top comedy series trophy.


The series, based in 1958 New York City, follows Miriam "Midge" Maisel (House of Cards' Brosnahan) as she transitions from a typical 1950s housewife and mother who discovers her calling as a stand-up comic. After thanking Amazon for their "unwavering" support, the crew, and "my murderer's row of actors", the executive producer and creator declared, "I'm going backstage". The series also stars Alex Borstein, Tony Shalhoub, Michael Zegen, and Marin Hinkle.

Hollywood bible Variety described its win for best TV comedy series - ahead of Black-ish, Master of None, SMILF and Will & Grace - as a "surprise". Rachel Brosnahan, who plays the show's title character, also won earlier in the evening for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series.

The entire first season available to stream on Amazon.
