Golden Globes 2014: Bryan Cranston and Elisabeth Moss Among Early Winners in TV
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) has handed out some of the prizes at the 71st annual Golden Globe Awards. Among those triumphant in TV categories early on the show were Jacqueline Bisset, Elisabeth Moss and Bryan Cranston.
Bisset grabbed an award for Best Supporting Performance in a Series, Miniseries, or Television Film, thanks to her role on "Dancing on the Edge". She surprisingly defeated top contender Sofia Vergara and other nominees including, Janet McTeer, Hayden Panettiere and Monica Potter. Bisset was bleeped out during her acceptance speech and wouldn't stop speaking when the music played.
"Mad Men" star Moss was named best actress in a miniseries or motion picture made for television, which was awarded for her performance on Sundance's "Top of the Lake". It was the first Golden Globe award for Moss and she said she's shocked that she won tonight. She beat out Helena Bonham Carter, Rebecca Ferguson, Jessica Lange and Helen Mirren for the prize.
"Breaking Bad" star Cranston, meanwhile, earned his first Golden Globe award for Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Series - Drama, after being nominated multiple times in the same category but had not won any before. Edging out other top contenders including James Spader, Michael Sheen, Kevin Spacey and Liev Schreiber, he said the award was a "lovely way to say goodbye to the show that meant so much to me."
Later, series creator Vince Gilligan showed up on stage to accept the prize for Best TV Series - Drama for the AMC crime drama series. With reuniting cast members behind him, he gave the mic to Aaron Paul to deliver Jesse Pinkman's catchphrase one more time, "Yeah, b***h, thank you!"
Another winner in TV field was "Behind the Candelabra", which was chosen as Best Miniseries or Television Film. Its lead actors Matt Damon and Michael Douglas are also vying for Best Performance by an Actor in a Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television which will be announced later at the event.
