It was a big night for SNL alums at last night’s Golden Globe Awards. From Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting, to both Seth Meyers and Jimmy Fallon promoting their new late night talk shows (Jimmy Fallon transition to the “Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon” while Meyers takes over for “Late Night with Seth Meyers”), to wins for Poehler and Andy Samberg, the night could have been called the “Saturday Night Live” alumni awards.
One of the biggest surprises of the night came in the television category when the FOX freshman series “Brooklyn Nine-Nine took home the Golden Globe for Best TV Series, Musical or Comedy. The NY comedy laugher stars Andy Samberg as Brooklyn detective who solve cases in the most unusual ways much to the chagrin of his captain (Andre Braugher.) Series co-creator Dan Goor accepted the award on behalf of the entire cast.
“I’m a terrible actor so you can be assured I’m very surprised in real life," Goor said in his acceptance speech. “I want to thank Universal Television and FOX, especially [president] Kevin Reilly who controls our fate and who is very, very handsome." Goor thanked the cast, including Andy Samberg for his win for Best Actor for the series, referred to the Globe win as "better than saving a human life.”
On the TV side, “Breaking Bad” was awarded Best Drama Series and its star Bryan Cranston; Robin Wright received the Globe for Drama Actress for "House of Cards." Amy Poehler won Best Actress TV Series, Musical or Comedy and ”Behind the Candelabra” took home Best Mini-Series or TV movie.
