The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is written and directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino (Gilmore Girls).
The streaming network walked away with two Golden Globes, tying Hulu for the most awards for streaming networks. The series is about a housewife living in late 1950s New York City who decides to pursue stand-up comedy after her marriage falls apart.
Rachel Brosnahan, the non-Jewish actress who plays the very Jewish Midge Maisel in the Amazon Studios series, took home the Best Actress award for a television comedy in Sunday's awards ceremony in California.
Hollywood bible Variety described its win for best TV comedy series - ahead of Black-ish, Master of None, SMILF and Will & Grace - as a "surprise".
"Big kudos and congrats to Rachel for her first Golden Globe and to Amy for an outstanding first season", Prime Video Vice President Greg Hart said in a statement. "We could not have found a better partner; we're never leaving", the series creator said during her acceptance speech. The series will be available for free online starting Friday, Jan. 12 at 12:01 local time through 11:59 p.m. local time on Monday, Jan. 15 and via the Prime Video app for TVs, connected devices, and mobile devices.
