The 2014 Golden Globes are up and running, and that of course means an opportunity to talk about some of the winners! We’re a TV site, so the focus here is not going to be on “Captain Phillips,” “American Hustle,” or any of the other films that could end up winning some of the awards on the night. The following are the winners from the TV world:
Supporting Actress – Jacqueline Bisset, “Dancing on the Edge.” Here is the problem with this category: Maybe at most 1% of the viewing public have seen this, and it makes sense that they consider making the supporting actor category into separate ones rather than something that is a catch-all. With that being said, what a crazy speech for Bisset to make! She activated the censors, took forever to get going, and then refused to be silenced by the music at the end.
TV Movie / Miniseries – “Behind the Candelabra.” Can you really be surprised by this? You can’t. This miniseries has swept almost everything, and with good reason. Unfortunately, there is just not much else to really say here.
Actress in a TV Movie / Miniseries – Elisabeth Moss, “Top of the Lake.” Hey, a “Mad Men” actor wins something … but it’s not for “Mad Men.” Still, it’s easy to be happy for Moss, who comes across as extremely kind and natural in most of her pre-show interviews. Also, the second person on the night to set off the censors.
Actor in a TV Series, Drama – Bryan Cranston – This is going to be a start of a trend, we feel. For those final eight episodes, “Breaking Bad” is going on quite a tear. Cranston had never won before at this awards show, which is a pretty insane thing to think about.
TV Series, Drama – “Breaking Bad.” It was somewhat surprising that this was given away in the first hour, though it is not that we minded or anything. It was a perfect end to what was as close to a perfect show as you can get.
Actor in a Supporting Role – Jon Voight, “Ray Donovan.” Really? We personally disliked this character so much that we almost couldn’t focus on the performance. Plus, no way would we give this award to anyone on “Ray Donovan” over Aaron Paul.
Actress in a TV Series, Drama – Robin Wright, “House of Cards.” Netflix wins a big award! That is something to certainly write home about after it has been shut out in most other categories.
Actor in a TV Series, Comedy – Andy Samberg, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” Who doesn’t love a surprise? We were personally pulling for him and the little show that could, and Andy ended up turn getting a surprise victory over Jim Parsons.
Actress in a TV Series, Comedy – Amy Poehler, “Parks and Recreation.” Yay! Amy so frequently gets snubbed that her victory all the sweeter.
TV Series, Comedy – “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” Another surprise! But then again, we feel like the Globes were really looking for a new comedy besides “Modern Family” to give an award to, and the first twelve episodes of this show have been extremely funny. This is a win that made us very warm and fuzzy.
