The 80th annual Golden Globes were held tonight, and Costner took home the trophy for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, Drama for his work on Yellowstone. He landed the role over other contenders such as Jeff Bridges for The Old Man, Diego Luna for Andor, Bob Odenkirk for Better Call Saul, and Adam Scott for Severance.
When the 19th Golden Globes were handed out on March 5, 1962, they became the first to recognize a male television actor for any role, regardless of genre, with the award for Best TV Star-Male. Up until 1969, winners might be chosen for either their humorous or dramatic performances.
