How Did Mozart in the Jungle Take Home the Golden Globe for Best TV Comedy?


On this week’s episode of The Vulture TV Podcast, we discuss the Globes’ long history of awarding offbeat, quirky underdogs, and analyze Sunday night’s pleasant surprises (Rachel Bloom), disappointments (Gaga), and head-scratchers (Gaga?). Plus, we get into what defines a drama versus a soap opera (hint: Sons if Anarchy is definitely a soap), and why the latter should stop being seen as an insult.

There are spoilers in the following discussions:
House of Cards,
Game of Thrones,
Downton Abbey,
