Golden Globes: Kelsey Grammer wins best actor in a TV drama series

“Boss” star Kelsey Grammer received a Golden Globe award for lead actor in a TV drama, beating Steve Buscemi (“Boardwalk Empire”), Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”), Jeremy Irons (“The Borgias”) and Damian Lewis (“Homeland”).

Grammer took home the trophy for his turn in the Starz drama as a corrupt Chicago mayor, Tom Kane, trying to mask a deteriorating mental condition. It’s hardly Grammer’s first trip to the glitzy rodeo — he received numerous nominations for his role as pompous psychiatrist Dr. Frasier Crane in the long-running NBC sitcom “Frasier” — for which he received two, in 1996 and 2001, respectively.

And the Hollywood Foreign Press aren’t the only ones infatuated with Grammer’s austere portrayal. Starz renewed the drama for a second season before the launch of its first-season debut.

The Golden Globes were held Sunday at the Beverly Hilton.
