Meet 'Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' star Rachel Brosnahan, Golden Globe victor

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Rachel Brosnahan, who plays the lead role of a Jewish housewife in 1958 NY who discovers a knack for stand-up, took the Golden Globe for best actress in a TV comedy.

Give it up for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel! This is the third time Amazon has won in this category: In 2016, Mozart in the Jungle won, and in 2015, Transparent took home the hardware.

The series is created, written, and directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino, the woman who brought you the Gilmore Girls. She also thanked Amazon: "Their support was completely unwavering at all times", she said.

And Sherman-Palladino ended her speech in only the way she could: "Is there cheese backstage?" The series is about a housewife living in late 1950s New York City who decides to pursue stand-up comedy after her marriage falls apart.

Tony Shalhoub (Monk) also stars as Midge's father Abe Weissman, along with Alex Borstein (Family Guy) as Susie Myerson, Michael Zegen (Boardwalk Empire) as Midge's husband Joel Maisel and Marin Hinkle (Two and a Half Men) as Midge's mother Rose Weissman. Aziz Ansari earned the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Musical or Comedy for "Master of None". Any wins of the streaming network lately are good with Amaozn's current slate of TV largely disappointed this year, other than The Grand Tour, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and The Tick.

The entire first season available to stream on Amazon.
