The broadcast networks won just a single Golden Globe Sunday night, but it was a significant one. “History was made when Tracee Ellis Ross [a star of ABC’s ‘blackish’] won for best actress in a musical or comedy TV series,” reports CNN. “She became the first black woman to win in that category since Debbie Allen won for ‘Fame’ in 1983.”

The CNN story quotes Ross saying: “This is for all of the women, women of color and colorful people whose stories, ideas, thoughts are not always considered worthy, valid and important. But I want you to know I see you. We see you.”
Winning the most awards on the TV side was FX, which picked up four Golden Globes for “The People v. O.J. Simpson” and “Atlanta.” AMC claimed three statuettes for its airing of the BBC production of “The Night Manager.”
