Laura Dern won the Golden Globe for lead actress in a TV comedy series Sunday with her turn in HBO’s “Enlightened.”

Dern plays Amy Jellicoe, a formerly high-powered executive struggling to get her life back together after a series of reversals.  She beat out Zooey Deschanel in Fox’s “New Girl,” Tina Fey in NBC’s “30 Rock,” Laura Linney in Showtime’s “The Big C” and Amy Poehler in NBC’s “Parks and Recreation.”

Dern previously won Golden Globes for the 2008 HBO movie “Recount” and the 1992 HBO movie “Afterburn.”

The 69th Golden Globes ceremony was broadcast nationwide by NBC from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.
