“House” star Hugh Laurie and “The Closer” actress Kyra Sedgwick picked up best drama series acting honors at the 64th annual Golden Globe awards show.

“I am speechless,” said Mr. Laurie, winning for the second year in a row for his role as a cantankerous physician on Fox’s hit series. “I am literally without a speech.”

An hour into the ceremony in Beverly Hills, award recipients for the television honors represent a diverse group, with no network or show yet dominating the winners list.

Jeremy Irons won for best supporting actor in a miniseries or TV movie for HBO’s “Elizabeth I,” and Emily Blunt has won for supporting actress in a miniseries or TV movie for BBC America’s “Gideon’s Daughter.”

The Globes, presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, are airing on NBC.
