Streaming services collectively won the largest awards tally at the 2018 Golden Globes, beating out cable and broadcast TV networks for the first time in the award show’s history.

While HBO took home four Golden Globes for one show, “Big Little Lies” – the most of any network and the only wins for premium cable – the three major streaming services together landed five out of the total 11 awards.

Amazon Studios won two awards for “The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel,” including best comedy series and best actress in a comedy series for Rachel Brosnahan. Hulu also won two awards for “The Handmaid’s Tale,” including best drama series and best actress in a drama series for Elisabeth Moss.

Aziz Ansari’s performance in “Master of None” won Netflix its only award of the night, for best actor in a comedy series.

Last year, basic cable reigned, as FX took home the most awards with four (two a piece for “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” and “Atlanta”), while AMC grabbed three wins for “The Night Manager.”

Here’s how the Golden Globes broke down by network:


Amazon Studios: 2 (“The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel”)

Hulu: 2 (“The Handmaid’s Tale”)

Netflix: 1 (“Master of None”)


HBO: 4 (“Big Little Lies”)


FX: 1 (“Fargo”)


NBC: 1 (“This Is Us”)
