2015 Golden Globes: The Morning After The Night Before!
No one network or film dominated the 2015 Golden Globes last night, but Tina Fey and Amy Poehler went out on top with a satisfying mix of soft, hard and curveball pitches – and yes, their Cosby jokes landed pretty hard. Somehow, they managed to sting as hard as Ricky Gervais – without using his scattergun approach. The result was that their digs landed well and generally caught the audience off guard.
But the Golden Globes is about the drinking the awards, so let’s take a look at them.
After a lifetime of ‘dressing up… as a man,’ Mort Pfefferman decides it’s time to be her real self – Maura. The thing is, Maura/Mort has three grown children with his ex-wife, Shelly, who have to deal with her change.
That, in short, is the premise for Amazon’s new series from Jill Solloway (Six Feet Under), Transparent, starring Jeffrey Tambor, Judith Light (Dallas) as Maura’s ex-wife Shelly, while Gaby Hoffmann (Girls), Amy Landecker (Louie) and Jay Duplass (Togetherness) play Maura and Shelly’s children. Check out the series’ first trailer after the jump.
Transparent premieres its ten-episode first season on Amazon Prime on September 26th.
