No surprise there. Glee took home the award for best musical or comedy television series, beating veteran shows as The Office, 30 Rock, and Entourage at the recent Golden Globe Awards.
Although the hit Fox show bagged the biggest award that night, it didn’t win three other awards that its cast members were nominated for. Leah Michele, who was nominated as best actress in a musical or comedy series lost to Toni Colette from The United States of Tara. Jane Lynch, who was nominated as best supporting actress, lost to Chloe Sevigny of Big Love. Matthew Morrison lost the best actor award to Alec Baldwin of 30 Rock.
“Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press and Miss Barbara Streisand,” said Glee creator Ryan Murphy in his acceptance speech, with the cast celebrating behind him. “We would like to thank all the wonderful people who actually thought a musical would work on primetime television.”
