Rachel Brosnahan wins best TV actress in a musical or comedy at Golden Globes
Rachel Brosnahan gave Amazon more juice as a streaming service worthy of awards glory. The actress, who stars in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel from Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, took home best actress in a television comedy or musical at the Golden Globes ceremony on Sunday.
This is a story about a bold and brilliant and complicated woman, and I am endlessly proud to be a part of it. But there are so many women’s stories out there that need and deserve to be told,” Brosnahan said after accepting her award from Carol Burnett and Jennifer Aniston. “So as we enter this new year, please let’s continue to hold each other accountable and invest in and make and champion these stories.”
Brosnahan was nominated in the category alongside Pamela Adlon (FX’s Better Things), Alison Brie (Netflix’s GLOW), Issa Rae (HBO’s Insecure), and Frankie Shaw (Showtime’s SMILF).
As the amount of original series made for streaming rose in the past few years, Amazon earned Golden Globes for shows like Transparent and Mozart in the Jungle. With The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, the platform picked up the series for two seasons, starting with its pilot premiere in March 2017.
Brosnahan plays Miriam “Midge” Maisel, a 1950s housewife who decides to lead a life as a stand-up comic. This marks her first Golden Globe nomination and win.
