The only thing we love more than an underdog story is an underdog story we can stream.
If you were watching the 2017 Golden Globes last night, you may have heard a few shows whose name you didn’t recognise.
It’s not our fault, Australian streaming services drag their heels when it comes to delivering the goods.
In an effort to offset this great television injustice, we’ve cherry-picked the best winners and losers of last night’s awards.
Buckle up and get ready to binge.
