HBO's account of the rise of Sarah Palin during the 2008 presidential campaign is an early favorite at the Golden Globes.
"Game Change" earned the Golden Globe Sunday as best television miniseries. Julianne Moore, who portrayed Palin, earned best actress honors for a miniseries or movie.
Moore made it a point to thank another Palin impersonator, in her acceptance speech, Tina Fey, a co-host of the Golden Globes. She did not thank Palin.
Veteran actress Maggie Smith, who plays Violet Crawley, the Countess of Grantham in the PBS period piece "Downton Abbey," won as best supporting actress in a TV series. She wasn't in California to receive her award.
Anne Hathaway took away the golden Globe for best supporting actress in a motion picture for her role in Les Miserables.
Jennifer Lawrence won for best actress in a comedy or musical for her role in Silver Linings Playbook.
Best supporting actor in a motion picture went to Christoph Waltz for his role in Django Unchained.
