NZ-based crime drama scoops Golden Globe Award

Yesterday NZT, the trophies for outstanding television and film performances and productions were dished out at the annual Golden Globe Awards (which I've always thought seemed the more-fun yet still prestigious cousin compared to the TV-only Emmys and film-only Oscars).

And once again, there was a wee bit of New Zealand on show, with Elisabeth Moss (previously famous for Mad Men) scooping the Best Actress in a mini-series award for her lead role in Top of the Lake, the Jane Campion-helmed crime drama set in New Zealand's southern lakes area. "Oh s***. I really didn't expect this to happen. I'm totally shaking," Moss reportedly told the star-studded crowd in Los Angeles.

In Top of the Lake, Moss plays a detective investigating the disappearance of a pregnant 12-year-old girl. The six-part series has been described as an atmospheric drama which "examines the darkest sides of human nature in an unflinching and undeniably compelling way, showcasing an entirely different side of Moss from her Mad Men character".You can read an interview with Moss about her role here.
