Showtime's The Affair wins Golden Globe for best TV drama

New, 11 comments

Showtime's "The Affair" took home the Golden Globe award tonight for best television drama.

A diverse roster of nominees were up for the award. Netflix's "House of Cards" once again made an appearance in the category, along with HBO's "Game of Thrones" and PBS's "Downton Abbey," as well as CBS's "The Good Wife."

"The Affair" leaps back and forth in time, following a couple — played by Dominic West and Ruth Wilson — before and after an affair. That creative story structure, and the performances that fill it, have been hailed by critics since the show started. Wilson also took home a television best actress award for her role.
