Another year, another winner for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy Series. 

And this year, Phoebe Waller-Bridge took home the statuette for her role as Fleabag in Fleabag. Yup, at the 77th annual Golden Globes at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, Waller-Bridge edged out Christina Applegate for Dead to Me, Rachel Brosnahan for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Kirsten Dunst for On Becoming a God in Central Florida and Natasha Lyonne for Russian Doll.

This is the only category with nominations for Russian Doll, On Becoming a God in Central Florida and Dead to Me, while Fleabag landed three nods including Best Supporting Actor and Best TV Series, Comedy. 

This is the third time Brosnahan has been nominated with the prestigious award for her role as Midge in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Pretty impressive. 

Last year, the competition included Kristen Bell for The Good Place, Candice Bergen for Murphy Brown, Alison Brie for GLOW and Debra Messing for Will & Grace.

This particular honor was first awarded at the 19th Golden Globe Awards on March 5, 1962, under the title Best TV Star-Female, grouping all genres of television series together. The award honored actresses in both comedy and drama genres until 1969, when it was split into categories that honored comedic and dramatic performances separately (thank goodness). 

Congrats, Waller-Bridge! That was some serious competition.
