In a virtual replay of the 2008 Primetime Emmy Awards, Mad Men and 30 Rock took home the top television honors at the 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards, while HBO took home its usual boatload of statues.
On the heels of its Emmy win for outstanding TV drama, AMC’s Mad Men won its second TV drama Golden Globe. Likewise, NBC’s Emmy-winning 30 Rock, and its two Emmy-winning lead actors, Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin, carried the top honors for television comedy.
HBO—led by its awards-laden miniseries, John Adams—won seven of the 10 awards it was nominated for. John Adams won for best miniseries and picked up three acting awards for its two leads, Paul Giamatti and Laura Linney, and supporting actor Tom Wilkinson.
Two new HBO series also received top acting awards for In Treatment’s Gabriel Byrne and True Blood’s Anna Paquin.
