Golden Globes 2014: 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' wins Best TV Comedy
And the surprises just keep coming: Freshman comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine just snagged the Golden Globe Award for Best TV Series, Musical or Comedy. This is the second year in a row that the Hollywood Foreign Press has celebrated a new program in this category; last year, HBO’s Girls took home the prize.
Executive producer Daniel J. Goor accepted the award on his show’s behalf, making sure to thank his writers — “who never get to see their families” — series lead and newly-anointed Golden Globe winner Andy Samberg, co-EP and co-creator Michael Schur, and finally, his family, including his two-and-a-half-year-old, “who’s a nightmare.” Goor closed out his speech by noting that he decided to go into comedy instead of medicine, and that, in the end, he’s positive that he made the right decision: “This is way better than saving a human life.”
