Andy Samberg: I Didn't Deserve To Win A Golden Globe

Andy Samberg was perhaps more shocked than anyone when he won a Golden Globe for his work on "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." He dropped by "Chelsea Lately" where he said quite plainly, "I was genuinely surprised, because I didn’t deserve it." While Samberg believes the show itself is worthy of recognition -- and it did win for Outstanding Comedy -- he thought he was outclassed in his category.

"It was like, Michael J. Fox, and Jim Parsons, and Jason Bateman," Samberg said. "Don Cheadle, who was in 'Hotel Rwanda.' Yeah, I get the acting trophy over 'Hotel Rwanda' guy."

Handler agreed with Samberg that he wasn't the best actor in the group, but she also agreed that the show deserved its big win. Fox is hoping to get more people watching its Golden Globe-winning series by slotting a special episode after this weekend's Super Bowl coverage. It's being paired with an episode of "New Girl" guest-starring Prince.

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" airs after "New Girl" when both comedies broadcast special episodes after Fox's coverage of the Super Bowl this Sunday. Otherwise, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" airs Tuesdays at 8:30 p.m. EST on Fox. "Chelsea Lately" airs weeknights at 11 p.m. EST on E!
