Maisel wins the 2018 Golden Globe for best TV comedy

"I want to thank our crew who turned NY into 1958 NY on a daily basis and nobody killed us or threw us out". She also thanked Amazon: "Their support was completely unwavering at all times", she said. The series, which has high marks from critics and fans, starts Brosnahan as Miriam "Midge" Maisel, a 1950s New York Jewish woman who is living the life as a wife, mother, successful parents, and a lovely Upper West Side apartment.

Amazon picked up the series last spring with a two-season order, the first multi-season new series greenlight at the streaming network.

In the movie categories, Lady Bird won best musical or comedy and its star Saoirse Ronan best actress in the same category. The series won the Golden Globe for Best TV Series - Drama.

Rachel Brosnahan, the non-Jewish actress who plays the very Jewish Midge Maisel in the Amazon Studios series, took home the Best Actress award for a television comedy in Sunday's awards ceremony in California. Her whole life is turned upside down and the only thing that could help her through the chaos, is her talent for stand-up comedy. Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino serve as executive producers. Tony Shaloub, Marin Hinkle, and Michael Zegen also star.

Hollywood bible Variety described its win for best TV comedy series - ahead of Black-ish, Master of None, SMILF and Will & Grace - as a "surprise".
