LOS ANGELES, Jan. 9 (UPI) -- Several Golden Globes were lavished on the freshman comedy series Atlanta and the miniseries The Night Manager in Los Angeles Sunday night.

Atlanta was named Best Television Comedy and its star Donald Glover Best Actor in a Television Comedy.

The Night Manager co-stars Hugh Laurie and Olivia Colman took home respectively the prizes for Best Performance by an Actor and Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television. Their fellow cast member Tom Hiddleston won for Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.

The program lost out in the top category in which it competed, however, as The People v. O.J. Simpson was named Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television. That miniseries also earned Sarah Paulson the accolade for Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.

The Crown was declared Best Drama and its star Claire Foy Best Actress in a Drama. Billy Bob Thornton was named Best Actor in a Drama for Goliath and Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross was deemed Best Actress in a Comedy.
