Girls, Homeland Top Golden Globes TV Awards

Star co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler brought the funny for fans – and double-digit ratings boosts for the 70th Golden Globes Awards. The Primetime Emmy-winning pair presided over the most watched Globes telecast in six years, which honored lots of familiar faces and programs from the most recent Emmys.

Beverly Hills, CAHBO’s Girls took the top comedy or musical television series award at the 70th Golden Globes, while best drama series went to Showtime political thriller Homeland for the second year in a row. Les Miserables and Argo each won top film honors. 

Each of the winners in the television actor categories — Homeland's Damian Lewis and Claire Danes on the drama side and Don Cheadle of House of Lies and Lena Dunham of Girls in comedy/musical — garnered wins and/or nominations for work on these programs at September's 64th Primetime Emmy Awards.

Likewise, 64th Emmys winner Kevin Costner picked up a Golden Globe for his work in Hatfields & McCoys and 64th Emmys nominee Ed Harris won the supporting actor Globe for his portrayal of John McCain in Game Change. Though known for her motion picture career, Globe's Cecil B. Demille recipient Jodie Foster garnered a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for exec-producing Showtime original movie The Baby Dance, starring Stockard Channing in 1999, and is reportedly back with Showtime developing female-focused mob drama Angie's Body.

Co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler appeared to glide easily across a tightrope that can challenge the most promising or seasoned awards show hosts: deliver a fresh, funny and dynamic enough performance to keep viewers at home tuned-in – and do it without totally alienating the celebrities who are sitting just a few feet away. The two Primetime Emmy-winning stars presided over the most-watched Globes telecast since 2007 and fueled a 28% ratings spike from last year with adults aged 18-49 (17% jump in total viewers), according to Nielsen Media Research.

The yearly Golden Globe Awards show itself has garnered three Emmy nominations — all in the Outstanding Special Class category for years 2012, 2011 and 2007.

Fans will see whether the program continues its current nominations streak this year when nominees for the golden Emmy statuette are announced on July 18.
