Amazon’s ‘Transparent,’ Showtime’s ‘The Affair,’ The CW’s ‘Jane the Virgin,’ and Sundance TV’s “The Honorable Woman” were among the winners at last night’s 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards presentation, as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association gave special nods to the new and fresh on TV.
Other TV winners included FX’s “Fargo,” Netflix’s “House of Cards.” HBO’s movie “The Normal Heart” also won a Golden Globe, as did PBS’s hit “Downton Abbey.”

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the show again, and we here at TVWeek especially enjoyed their opening monologue. Here’s our favorite line, which also brought down the house:
Tina Fey: “George Clooney married Amal Alamuddin this year. Amal is a human-rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, was an adviser to Kofi Annan regarding Syria, and was selected for a three-person UN commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza Strip. So tonight her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award.”
