Robin Wright picked up the Golden Globe for Best actress in a TV Drama Sunday night.
The 47-year-old won for her role as the wife of a corrupt US congressman, played by Kevin Spacey, in the Netflix original series "House of Cards." This is her first Golden Globe win and second nomination; she was previously nominated in 1995 for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for her work in "Forrest Gump."
Wright faced heavy competition this year from other talented actresses in what proved to be a strong year for leading ladies in television dramas. The other nominees included Julianna Margulies for "The Good Wife," Tatiana Maslany for "Orphan Black," Taylor Schilling for "Orange is the New Black" and Kerry Washington for "Scandal."
In her speech, she thanked the crew, Netflix and Kevin Spacey, calling her co-star "the best playdate ever."
