Amazon proved itself a major player in the television field when its original program 'Transparent' won the Golden Globe for best TV series, musical or comedy and star Jeffrey Tambor won best actor.

Not only was it Amazon's first-ever Golden Globe award, 'Transparent' also became the first online series to ever win a best series award, comedy or drama, at the annual awards show.

"My new best friend," Tambor said of the digital media company during his acceptance speech.

The series stars Tambor as a father of three who reveals he identifies as a woman. There was a lot of love for the show on the red carpet prior to the awards. 'Shameless' star William H. Macy, nominated for best actor in a TV comedy, said he didn't bother preparing a speech because "I think Jeffrey Tambor's going to win."

In his acceptance speech, a visibly touched Tambor noted, "This is big. This is much bigger than me. Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press for putting us on the map and making people aware of our story."
