The 2016 Golden Globes are underway, and we’re here with the purpose of talking all things TV, and big winners, over the course of the night! We’re going to be updating the full list as the show goes on with analysis, so be sure to refresh the page!
Of course, we should note that since we’re a TV site, we’re not really going to spend any time on the films. There are plenty of other destinations where you can go for that.
Supporting Actress – Maura Tierney, “The Affair.” This is a little bit of a surprise, but at the same time we learned last year that the Globes really love “The Affair.” Really. We’re surprised it didn’t get more nominations this season.
Actress, Comedy – Rachel Bloom, “Crazy Ex Girlfriend.” Killer speech. Somewhat of a surprise, but not really since we thought that The CW could get this. Also, we’re calling “Crazy Ex Girlfriend” getting renewed.
Comedy – “Mozart in the Jungle.” Seriously didn’t expect this. Basically, the least-known of the comedy nominees beat “Orange is the New Black” and “Silicon Valley.” Gotta love an underdog, right?
Miniseries / TV Movie – “Wolf Hall.” Another surprise … but not a great one. How this wins over the spectacular “Fargo” is baffling.
Actor, Miniseries / TV Movie – Oscar Isaac, “Show Me a Hero.” Probably the closest thing to a favorite that has actually won so far. Strange, but fun, awards so far.
Supporting Actor – Christian Slater, “Mr. Robot.” Is this our first sign of where the awards the rest of the night are going?
Actor, Drama – Jon Hamm, “Mad Men.” So much for that notion. As it turns out, things are still unpredictable! We thought Rami had it.
Actor, Comedy – Gael Garcia Bernal, “Mozart in the Jungle.” Another major shock! “Transparent” star Jeffrey Tambor loses to a complete underdog.
Actress, Miniseries / TV Movie – Lady Gaga, “American Horror Story: Hotel.” Apparently the Hollywood Foreign Press really wanted Lady Gaga to have a Golden Globe.
Drama Series – “Mr. Robot.” After the Slater won, no surprise here and very deserved.
Actress, Drama – Taraji P. Henson, “Empire.” It’s sort of a surprise, but we love that she handed out cookies … and her yelling at them so that she can have more time.
