While the critically acclaimed AMC drama won its first Globes for Best Television Series – Drama and Best Actor in a Drama Series for Bryan Cranston, the upstart FOX comedy surprised in both its categories, winning Best Television Series – Comedy over the likes of Girls and Modern Family and Best Actor in a Comedy Series for star Andy Samberg. The television winners included several surprises, as is the calling card of the Golden Globes, with Parks and Recreation‘s Amy Poehler taking home her first award for portraying Leslie Knope, Elisabeth Moss triumphing over Jessica Lange and Helen Mirren, and Jacqueline Bisset being honored with the Globe for Best Supporting Actress for international miniseries Dancing on the Edge.

Other television winners included Behind the Candelabra, Michael Douglas, Jon Voight, and Robin Wright. A full list of winners is below.
