Andy Samberg says shock genuine over winning Golden Globe

Hey! You may have heard Andy Samberg won a Golden Globe for best comedic actor at the recent Golden Globes while his show, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," won for best comedy. This was the biggest upset of the Golden Globes, and prompted a torrent of abusive tweets from the Newsday TV critic, decrying the win and insisting that the august body comprising those who do the voting for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association wouldn't know a TV show if they tripped over one. This critic later insisted that the Globes should just drop the TV category altogether since they really never watch the shows that are submitted, because they are too busy watching the movies that are submitted.

Anyway, enough about this critic -- who was just full of sour grapes because  the Globes didn't pick the shows he insisted should have won. But last night on "Late Show with David Letterman," winner Andy Samberg insisted that he really didn't think he was getting anything, either. Samberg ended up giving the most memorable speech of the entire night, offering a series of generic thank-yous without naming a single person. On "Letterman," he says he does regret not giving a nod to the other nominees. Here's the clip.

And by the way, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is a good show; its win was hardly a travesty. So, a belated congrats.
