This year's win marks four total Golden Globe awards for Amazon, following last year's double win for Transparent in the same categories, and also makes Amazon the first network in a decade to win Best Musical or Comedy Series and Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy Series in back-to-back years for different shows.
"What an incredible honor to be recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press two years in a row," said Roy Price, Vice President of Amazon Studios.
