Lena Dunham Wins At The Golden Globes For Best Actress In A Comedy Series

Lena Dunham has won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Comedy.

The actress/writer/director beat out Tina Fey ("30 Rock"), Amy Poehler ("Parks and Recreation"), Julia Louis-Dreyfus ("Veep") and Zooey Deschanel ("New Girl") for the coveted gong. Fey and Poehler were also pulling double-duty by hosting the awards. Last year's winner was "Enlightened" star Laura Dern, who wasn't nominated this time around.

"This award is for every woman who felt like there wasn't a space for her," Dunham said, visibly shaking as she accepted the award. "This show has made a space for me." Dunham later won Best TV Comedy or Musical for "Girls."

NBC broadcast the 2013 Golden Globes live from the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills, California.
