The mega-hit drama series, Succession, continues to cement its legacy, taking home the Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series – Drama. The HBO series’ victory ties the show, which follows the uber-wealthy, media and entertainment conglomerate-owning Roy family as they are thrown into a power struggle after their father steps down, with other major TV hits The X-Files and Mad Men for most Golden Globes wins for best drama.
Succession creator Jesse Armstrong talked about the “bittersweet” decision to end the show, which came to its conclusion last year with its fourth season, and commended all those who came together to make the show such a success.
“We decided this was the right time to end the show and that was very bittersweet, particularly for me, because I finally bought some shoes that are appropriate for award dos and this might be the last time I ever get to wear them. It is bittersweet, but things like this make it rather sweeter. Thank you very much indeed.
It’s a team effort this show, which is one of the reasons it’s so lovely to do and I’d like to accept this on behalf of the whole Succession writers’ room and directors led by Mark Mylod, my fellow producers, the extraordinary subtle and supple cast and the crew who so worked so dedicatedly and brilliantly on four seasons and we’ve been supported all the way through by HBO, by Casey Bloys, Francesca Orsi, Nora Skinner, Max Hollman and Sally Harvey. It has been such a wonderful team to work with it.”
As well as winning for best drama, Succession also took home Best Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role on Television for Matthew Macfadyen, Best Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Series – Drama for Kieran Culkin, and Best Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Series – Drama for Sarah Snook.
