In what might be the biggest surprise of the night, Amazon’s “Mozart in the Jungle” took home the award for Best TV Comedy Series at the 2016 Golden Globes, beating out award-show favorites.
The show’s lead actor, Gael García Bernal, also won Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy.
To celebrate its wins at the 73rd annual Golden Globes, Amazon will allow anyone to watch any and all episodes from the first two seasons of “Mozart in the Jungle” for free this weekend. That means you don’t have to spend $99 on an Amazon Prime subscription to gain access to the show.
You also can avoid the full $99 cost of the service this weekend as Amazon expands its celebration of the Globes wins by offering Prime subscriptions for $73.
Both the free streaming and the Prime discount are available from 9 p.m. PST Friday until 11:59 p.m. local time Sunday.
You can stream “Mozart in the Jungle”:
- using the Amazon Video app for TVs
- using connected devices like Fire TV and mobile devices like smartphones and tablets
- online at Amazon.com/mozartinthejungle
“Mozart in the Jungle” is based on Blair Tindall’s memoir “Mozart in the Jungle: Sex, Drugs and Classical Music.” Amazon describes the show as “draw[ing] back the curtain at the New York Symphony, where artistic dedication and creativity collide with mind games, politicking and survival instincts.”
