Brooklyn Nine-Nine And Breaking Bad Among TV's Big Golden Globe Winners
Itís not always easy to predict how the Hollywood Foreign Press will go when it comes to their TV preferences from year to year. Last year it was all about Homeland, and this year, the Showtime series didnít even make the list in any category. This year, the awards seemed more scattered, with newcomer Brooklyn Nine-Nine managing to score a couple of wins, and Breaking Bad securing a couple of key awards as well. For those who didnít tune in for the awards, hereís what you missed on the TV side of the thingsÖ
Breaking Bad and Bryan Cranston won, unfortunately, Aaron Paul didn't.Breaking Bad went out with a bang, earning itself a Golden Globe for Best TV Series, Drama for its final season, and another award for Bryan Cranstonís outstanding performance as Walter White. Unfortunately, while Aaron Paul was nominated for Supporting Actor, he was beat out for the award by the great Jon Voight, who won for Ray Donovan. Wouldíve been great to see Paul win the award for his excellent portrayal of Jesse in the AMC drama, but itís also hard to deny Voightís talent, as was evidently the case for the Hollywood Foreign Press.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine won for Best ComedyI'm always a little thrown off when a new series thatís still amidst its first season gets nominated for an award, let alone wins it, but apparently the HFPA was not only pleased enough already with Dan Goor and Michael Schur's new comedy to celebrate the series with a nomination, but also to award it a win over fan favorites The Big Bang Theory and Modern Family, or the critically praised Girls and Parks and Recreation. They also love Andy Samberg, as he managed to beat out Jason Bateman, Don Cheadle, Michael J. Fox and Jim Parsons for Best Actor in a TV Series, Comedy. Sambergís glee at winning was matched only by Amy Poehler's reaction to her own win. Read more about that after the jump...
