Golden Globes: 'Fargo' Fetches Cable's First 2 Statues

FX's adaptation of Fargo won cable's first Golden Globe at the 72nd Annual Hollywood Foreign Press Awards show, bringing home the trophy for best TV miniseries or movie.

The show topped Starz's The Missing and HBO's trio of True Detective, The Normal Heart and Oliver Kitteridge.

FX and Fargo quickly doubled their total as Billy Bob Thonton took home the Globe for best actor in a TV miniseries or movie. Thornton, who kept his acceptance, short and safe from getting him in any trouble, topped fellow Fargoer Martin Freeman, HBO's initial True Detective duo of Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, and Mark Ruffalo for the premium network's The Normal Heart.
