Amazon’s original series Mozart in the Jungle has won two Golden Globe awards in last night’s ceremony. The show, which is now in its second season, took home the award for best comedy or musical TV series, winning over a pair of Netflix shows and shows from HBO and Hulu. Additionally, actor Gael García Bernal, who plays Rodrigo de Souza in the series, won the award for best male performance in a TV series, beating out Jeffrey Tambor, who won the award last year for his leading role in Amazon’s Transparent. Speaking of Amazon’s other Golden Globe contender, Transparent came home with no wins for its three nominations. Surprisingly, Netflix also walked away with zero wins, despite having the most nominations of any studio with nine total.
When Transparent won two Golden Globes (and again when it won five Emmy awards) last year, Amazon celebrated by discounting Prime membership for one day only. There’s a good chance they’ll do the same in a week or so for their new Mozart in the Jungle Golden Globe wins. It’s very rare for Prime membership to be discounted at all, so if you’ve been waiting for such an occasion, be sure to check back often during the next couple weeks for a possible announcement from Amazon.
