Rachel Brosnahan edged out a category consisting nearly entirely of newcomers and took home the Golden Globe for actress in a television series musical or comedy Sunday.
The series is created, written, and directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino, the woman who brought you the Gilmore Girls.
Coming fresh off their Golden Globes win on Sunday, Amazon announced they will stream the complete series of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel for free starting on Friday, January 12th at 12:01 am and ending at 11:59 pm on Monday, January 15th via the Prime Video app, Fire TV, and online. She also thanked Amazon because "their support was completely unwavering at all times, every check cleared".
And Sherman-Palladino ended her speech in only the way she could: "Is there cheese backstage?"
Alex Borstein, who will look familiar to fans of the dryly dark HBO comedy series Getting On, plays her gruff manager and frequent foil.
Just a couple months after premiering to critical praise, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel took the top comedy series trophy. The period comedy was up against Black-ish, Master of None, SMILF, and Will and Grace.
Nicole Kidman was honored with the statuette for Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television for "Big Little Lies".
The first season of the series is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
