Jill Soloway accepts Transparent's Golden Globe for Best TV Show, Comedy or Musical

One of a good things — maybe a biggest thing — about a Golden Globes is a party. That’s party, singular, nonetheless they’re quite plural. Fox, HBO, TWC/Netflix, NBC/Universal, WB/InStyle — they’re all in one place, inside a rabbit-warren architecture that is a Beverly Hilton, and a sequence creates a quickness that creates a dusk a lot of fun. (It’s also timed for that honeyed mark when people are still vehement about a awards season, rather than tired by it.)

If you’re propitious adequate to get mixed invites, one of a evening’s traditions is final that celebration will be a best. That respect customarily goes to a horde with a biggest wins and, given IFC had no central celebration to celebrate a “Boyhood” coup, final night a respect went mostly to Fox, with a awards for Searchlight’s “Birdman” (best actor Michael Keaton and screenplay), “The Grand Budapest Hotel” (best suit design comedy), and FX’s “Fargo” (best miniseries and actor Billy Bob Thornton). Plus, it had Bill Murray on a dance floor; with that, diversion over. 

However, a genuine favourite of a night was Amazon Studios, writer of a beginner array “Transparent,” which won best actor for maestro Jeffrey Tambor in his first-ever Golden Globe nomination, and best TV comedy, that was supposed by creator Jill Soloway, who thanked her possess “Mapa” in a touching speech.

Amazon’s initial commander deteriorate was Apr 2013. “Transparent” kick out “Girls” (HBO) “Jane a Virgin” (CW), “Orange is a New Black” (Netflix), and “Silicon Valley” (Showtime). It’s a ruin of a manoeuvre for Roy Price and a Amazon Studios team; maybe they’ll cruise some-more of a Globes participation for 2016.

And maybe they won’t. Because no matter how many award-winning array Amazon Studios might go on to create, Amazon is opposite than each other writer in film and radio history. Amazon is not a content-first company; Amazon is a technology-first company. 

However, a doubt isn’t either Amazon will change a attention (already has), or a attention will change Amazon (not so much). Amazon’s win represents how a creative and business models for film and TV are thoroughly, and permanently, overthrown. The Golden Globes commend value in film and television, though as we pierce by a 21st century that taxonomy seems increasingly random; it usually describes dual available delivery formats. 

Today, a Sundance Film Festival is as many an incubator for good TV as it is for film; Sundance darlings Jay and Mark Duplass spent their Globes dusk during a HBO party, a same night that a network premiered their new series, “Togetherness.” (Director Jay, as a array lead in “Transparent,” had mixed reasons to celebrate.)

And while Sundance has not embraced episodic content to a same grade as some of a brethren (see: SXSW), they will premiere Andrew Jarecki and Marc Smeling’s HBO nonfiction array “Jinx” as good as a commander to another Mark Duplass project, a charcterised array “Animals” (and an merger title). 

At a TWC/Netflix party, “Maps to a Stars” writer Martin Katz discussed his zeal to work again with David Cronenberg (Katz also constructed “Spider,” “Cosmopolis,” and “A Dangerous Method”). However, Katz came from a internet — he was worker no. 3 during MSN Canada — and he’d like to get Cronenberg to emanate his possess episodic series. 

He pronounced Cronenberg’s been distracted by another medium — he published his initial novel, “Consumed,” in September — but he’s warming to a idea. It’s easy to forget that a peripatetic filmmaker is 72 — aged adequate to remember a time when, if a filmmaker done relocating cinema that couldn’t be tangible as a movie, he was a failure. 

Of course, a Globes know utterly a bit about what it means to be tangible as an also-ran. However, by honoring film and television, and being discerning to concede array from non-network outlets to compete, they are positioned to be a awards uncover that reflects a times they’re in. Meanwhile, a Academy Awards sojourn a many reputable film esteem in a world — though it’s also notoriously hidebound by manners and regulations that now make it unfit to suppose how it would paint a calm convergence. 

On one level, it’s doubtful a Oscars are losing nap over this; their ratings are roughly double the Globes’, and last year’s Oscars had a strongest ratings in a decade. At a same time, we live in a universe where Oscar frontrunner Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu has selected to make a Starz array with Ed Helms and Hilary Swank as his subsequent project. How prolonged will it be before we doubt the relevance of those filmmakers who don’t adapt?
