HBO took seven of the 11 TV prizes at the 2004 Golden Globe Awards.
Five of the pay-TV network’s wins were for miniseries “Angels in America,” which won best miniseries and four acting nods. HBO’s two other awards went to “Sex and the City’s” Sarah Jessica Parker for actress in a comedy or musical series and “Six Feet Under’s” Frances Conroy, who received the drama series actress award.
Aside from HBO and BBC America, which won two awards for “The Office,” CBS and Fox were the only other networks to pick up awards. Anthony LaPaglia, star of CBS’s “Without a Trace,” earned best actor in a drama series. Fox’s “24” won for best drama series.
“Angels in America’s” Meryl Streep, who won best actress in a miniseries, said backstage that the six-hour project that deals with AIDS was “a breakthrough on television not just because of the subject matter but because it asks a lot of the audience.”
Jeffrey Wright, who won best supporting actor in television for “Angels,” said it’s “a piece that says things that you don’t hear very often.”
