Everyone got distracted by Oprah at the Golden Globes

After the streaming giant's original series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel won two Golden Globes on Sunday - for best musical or comedy TV series and best actress for star Rachel Brosnahan - Amazon announced on Thursday that the Amy Sherman-Palladino series will be available to view for free this weekend for all audiences.

Amazon is ready to celebrate Mrs. Maisel. This is the third time Amazon has won in this category: In 2016, Mozart in the Jungle won, and in 2015, Transparent took home the hardware.

The series also earned a Golden Globe for its star, 27-year-old Rachel Brosnahan, who portrays Miriam "Midge" Maisel, an overachieving Jewish housewife in late 50s New York City who discovers a gift for stand-up comedy after her marriage falls apart.

"Oy, the Spanx", said Amy Sherman-Palladino while accepting the award at the ceremony held in Los Angeles. She also thanked Amazon: "Their support was completely unwavering at all times", she said.

Thousands Stranded in a Swiss Resort
Zermatt's manager, Janine Imesch, told AFP news agency there were around 13,000 tourists located in the region at present. More than a meter (39 inches) of snow fell in parts on Monday alone with another meter falling yesterday.

And Sherman-Palladino ended her speech in only the way she could: "Is there cheese backstage?" It boasts Sherman-Palladino's trademark rapid-fire dialogue and eccentric characters, like Susie (Alex Borstein), Midge's misanthropic manager.

Just a couple months after premiering to critical praise, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel took the top comedy series trophy.

Nicole Kidman was honored with the statuette for Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television for "Big Little Lies".
