Golden Globes honor "The Kominsky Method" and bid farewell to "The Americans"

Los Angeles, USA, Jan 6 (EFE).- The 76th edition of the Golden Globes rewarded the comedy "The Kominsky Method" on Sunday, said farewell to the espionage drama "The Americans" with honors, and recognized "The Assassination of Gianni Versace".

The awards are organized annually by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

"The Kominsky Method," led by legendary actors Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin, won the award for Best TV Comedy or Musical Series and Douglas took home the Best Actor in the same genre.

"And I guess this has to go to my 102-year-old father, Kirk," Michael Douglas said on stage when he picked up his trophy for this series created by Chuck Lorre.

"The Kominsky Method" took the Best Comedy award from "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", which won the Golden Globe again for Best Actress in a Comedy Series thanks to Rachel Brosnahan.

The actress, a sensation on the small screen for her role as a singular monologist in the fifties, defined the team of the series as "a matriarchy" with Amy Sherman-Palladino as the creator of this production.

After six seasons full of intrigue and tension, the espionage series "The Americans" said goodbye in 2018 and on Sunday night won the Golden Globe for Best TV Drama Series, for the first time.

The triumph was not complete for "The Americans", since their charismatic protagonists Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell, who are also a couple in real life, did not win in the categories in which they were nominated.

Richard Madden won, against the odds, the Golden Globe for Best Dramatic Actor for "Bodyguard", while Sandra Oh defeated renowned candidates like Julia Roberts ("Homecoming") to be chosen the Best Actress in a Drama for her role in "Killing Eve."

"There are two people here tonight that I am so grateful that they are here with me," said Oh, who was with Andy Samberg, the host of the gala, as she addressed her parents in Korean.

"American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace" was crowned as Best Television Limited Series, giving its protagonist Darren Criss a chance to take home the Golden Globe for Best Actor in this category.

Brad Simpson, executive producer of this series, launched a forceful speech in defense of diversity and in favor of resistance to intolerance and homophobia.

"Those forces of hate are still here with us. They tell us we should be scared of people who are different than us. They tell us we should put walls around ourselves. As artists we must fight back by representing those who are not represented," he said.

The list of winners was completed by Patricia Arquette as Best Actress of Limited Series or Television Movie from "Escape at Dannemora"; Ben Whishaw as Best Supporting Actor in a Series from "A Very English Scandal" and Patricia Clarkson as Best Supporting Actress from "Sharp Objects."

Clarkson thanked the director Jean-Marc Vallee who she said "demanded everything from me except sex, which is exactly how it should be in our industry."

Finally, the Golden Globes presented on Sunday night for the first time a prize for outstanding achievement in television, which Carol Burnett received, and in the future the award will be named after her.

Excited at the great ovation from her colleagues, the artist said that as a child she was fascinated that "stars on the screen could make people laugh or cry or sometimes both."

"And I wished and I hoped that maybe, just maybe, someday I could do the same thing," she said.
