Amazon cracked the Golden Globes' mantle with its 'Transparent' scoring the trophy for best TV comedy, as well as its lead Jeffrey Tambor.

The OTT player's family show in which a father, Mort (played by Tambor, pictured) reveals to his three adult children that he's a woman, came out ahead of HBO's 'Girls' and 'Silicon Valley,' The CW's 'Jane the Virgin,' whose star Gina Rodriguez earned the statue for best actress in a musical or a comedy, and Netflix's 'Orange is the New Black.'

Rodriguez's win was the first ever Globe for The CW.

Tambor -- who during his acceptance speech dedicated his award to the transgender community -- beat out such cable notables as Don Cheadle in Showtime's 'House of Lies,' Louis C.K. in FX's 'Louie' and William H. Macy in Showtime's 'Shameless,'  as well as Ricky Gervais in Netflix's 'Derek.'
