Taking something extra away from 'Kominsky' win at Golden Globes

Taking something extra away from 'Kominsky' win at Golden Globes

There wasn’t anything at the Golden Globes Sunday night to rival the emotional power of Oprah Winfrey’s speech last year at the awards show.

But there were a couple of moments for me during last night’s telecast that were special and even instructional.

My favorite drama and comedy, “The Americans” and “The Kominsky Method,” respectively, won as best drama and comedy, something that never happens with awards shows. I have come to hate the awards show genre, probably because I have had to review hundreds of bad ones during my career. At their worst, they define the artifice and emotional phoniness at the heart of Hollywood and too much of television.
