The Golden Globes offered a fond farewell to AMC’s epic tale of meth kingpin Walter White on Sunday, honoring it as television’s best drama and giving Bryan Cranston the top acting award.
Creator Vince Gilligan said the award gives the show, which concluded last fall, one more chance to thank its fans, “especially the early adopters” who started watching the dark tale in its first season. Then he turned to actor Aaron Paul, who shouted, “Yeah, bitch, thank you!”
White’s award came after losing four times in the category.
The HBO movie about Liberace, “Behind the Candelabra,” received a best TV movie trophy. Executive producer Jerry Weintraub saluted his cast and crew.
They did the hard work, he said, and “I get to stand here and drink the vodka and hold the trophy.”
Elisabeth Moss gets a lot of publicity for her work on “Mad Men,” but won a Golden Globe as best actress in a miniseries for playing a detective investigating the disappearance of a pregnant girl in the Sundance Channel miniseries, “Top of the Lake.”
Like movie winner Jennifer Lawrence before her, Moss was visibly trembling as she accepted her trophy.
Veteran actress Jacqueline Bisset, five times a nominee who won her first Golden Globe, savored the moment in getting a best supporting actress trophy. She played Lady Cremone in the BBC production of “Dancing on the Edge,” shown on Starz.
Her acceptance was punctuated by silence, she kept talking when the music tried to usher her offstage and even forced the censor to press the “bleep” button after she uttered a profanity.
