Golden Globes 2015 - All TV Categories Had First Time Winners!

Here’s a pretty cool fact from the 2015 Golden Globe Awards that you might not have realized – every winner in the TV categories was a first time winner at the awards show!

Kevin Spacey, who has been nominated seven times before, finally won a Golden Globe during his eighth time as a nominee.

“This is the eight time I’ve been nominated – I can’t f–king believe I won,” he said while getting bleeped.

Jane the Virgin‘s Gina Rodriguez, The Affair‘s Ruth Wilson, and Transparent‘s Jeffrey Tambor rounded out the wins in the main acting categories.

Not only did all of these winners grab their first Golden Globe, it was also the first time that The CW took home an award thanks to Gina‘s performance.

    Does anyone see a pattern with the winners? None of them are from the big 3 networks, tells you something about what we want to watch on TV. Reality series are a thing of the past, we want adult stories and humor.
