In what was believed to be a first, Helen Mirren Monday night received a best-actress Golden Globe award in both the motion-picture and television presentations. While her movie trophy was presented for her performance as Elizabeth II in The Queen, her TV award -- for best actress in a miniseries or TV movie -- honored her performance in Elizabeth I, as the queen who ruled the British Empire 400 years earlier. (The TV film also won for best miniseries or TV movie and for supporting actor -- Jeremy Irons.) ABC's Grey's Anatomy was voted the year's best dramatic series, while in its first season, the same network's Ugly Betty was voted best comedy series. Kyra Sedgwick and Hugh Laurie took the acting awards in the drama category, she for The Closer and he for House. The comedy performer awards went to America Ferrera for Ugly Betty and Alec Baldwin for 30 Rock. Bill Nighy claimed the Golden Globe for an actor in a miniseries or TV movie for his role in Gideon's Daughter.
