Tyler James Williams was the first nominee to snag a Golden Globe in the field of television after scoring the award for Best Supporting Actor for a Musical or Comedy Series for his performance as Greg Eddie in the hit education comedy series Abbott Elementary. Williams was presented his award by the ever wry Jennifer Coolidge, who jokingly referred to the demise of her character in White Lotus before cracking wise about presenting at the Academy Awards.
The second actor to land an award tonight for a television series was Jeremy Allen White, who received the award for Best Actor for a Musical or Comedy Series for his role as Carmy Berzatto in the critically acclaimed high-stakes kitchen drama show, The Bear. During his acceptance speech, Allen White graciously honored his fellow nominees (which includes the likes of such powerhouses as Donald Glover and Bill Hader) before giving a big thank you to his fellow cast and crew from The Bear.
Next up was Quinta Brunson, who won the award for Best Actress in a Television Series for Musical or Comedy for her performance as Philadelphia school teacher Janine Teagues in Abbott Elementary; Brunson is also the writer, executive producer, and creator of Abbott Elementary. Like Allen White, Brunson received her award from Emmy-nominated actress Niecy Nash, who joyfully cheered Brunson on as she announced the latter’s Golden Globe victory.
The next star to receive a Golden Globe was Zendaya, who was awarded Best Actress in a Television Series for her Emmy-award winning performance as Rue Bennett in the stylized teen drama series, Euphoria. Unfortunately, Zendaya was unable to attend this year’s Golden Globes, so her award was instead accepted by Top Gun: Maverick stars Glenn Powell and Jay Ellis, who relayed that Zendaya could not show up to the award show due to the fact that she was busy working on other projects.
Following Zendaya was Julia Garner, who landed a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a Musical-Comedy or Drama Television Series for her role as Ruth Langmore in the hit Netflix crime drama series, Ozark. This was Garner’s first and only win of her three nominations for the night.
Paul Walter Hauser was the next winner when he received the award for Best Supporting Actor in a Television Series – Limited Series for his bone-chilling performance as real-life serial killer Lawrence ‘Larry’ Hill in the Apple TV+ crime drama series, Black Bird. Walter Hauser was brief, but succinct in his touching acceptance speech, devoting special attention to his beloved wife, his young son and unborn daughter.
To everyone’s delight, Jennifer Coolidge managed to score the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Television Series – Limited Series. During her acceptance speech, Coolidge bounced between humor and tears as she graciously thanked the people who helped build her illustrious career, including creators such as Mike White (White Lotus) and Ryan Murphy (Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story).
Next to win was Amanda Seyfried, who won Best Actress in a Limited Series for her eerily accurate performance as the former biotechnology entrepreneur and convicted con woman Elizabeth Holmes in The Dropout. However, Seyfried was unable to appear at the Golden Globes due to a time constraint concerning her upcoming music video, so her award was instead accepted by presenters Mo Brings Plenty and Cole Hauser.
Evan Peters then snagged the award for Best Actor in a Limited Series for his breathtaking, yet controversial role as Jeffrey Dahmer in Ryan Murphy’s serial killer drama show, Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story. In his speech, Peters took the time to graciously thank Murphy for his remarkable directing and storytelling skills, which earned a resounding applause from the audience.
The second season of Mike White’s critically adored tourist satire series The White Lotus managed to win the award for Best Limited, Anthology Series or Television Film. In a heartfelt and hilarious speech (which was initially meant to be recited in Italian according to White), White thanked both HBO Max and Jennifer Coolidge for his unprecedented but well-deserved success with The White Lotus before poking fun at all the actors and producers in attendance who passed on his groundbreaking show during its early development.
Against such talents as Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul) and Adam Scott (Severance), Kevin Costner was able to land himself the award for Best Actor in Television Series – Drama for his role as patriarch and cowboy John Dutton III in the neo-Western drama, Yellowstone. Costner was unfortunately unable to accept his award in-person due to the recent severe weather conditions in Southern California, though presenter Regina Hall comically affirmed to audiences that he was watching the award ceremony from a safe place in Santa Barbara.
Abbott Elementary then managed to score the award for Best Musical or Comedy Series, marking Quinta Brunson’s second award for the night. During her acceptance speech, Brunson conveyed her deep and on-going love for comedy before taking the time to thank fellow comedians Henry Winkler and Seth Rogen for inspiring her and encouraging her to pursue a career in comedy.
Lastly, to the surprise of executive producer Miguel Sapochnik and actors Emma D’Arcy and Milly Alcock, House of the Dragon was able to land the coveted award of Best Drama Series against such big-hitting contenders as Severance and Better Call Saul. Sapochnik even commended the cast and crew of Severance during his acceptance speech, before turning the audience’s applause back towards a giddy D’Arcy and Alcock, who gleefully accepted the award alongside Sapochnik.
