Aziz Ansari Jokes About 'Losing to Jeffrey Tambor with Dignity' at Golden Globes

Posted on

You won’t catch Aziz Ansari being a sore loser.

The Master of None creator and star, who was nominated for a Golden Globe for best actor in a TV comedy or musical for the hit Netflix series, jokingly showed off his secret to being a good sport at the awards ceremony – a book titled Losing to Jeffrey Tambor with Dignity.

Tambor, who was nominated in the same category for his performance as a transgender woman in the Amazon series Transparent, was indeed stiff competition – but the award ended up going to Gael Garcéa Bernal for Mozart in the Jungle.

The 73rd annual Golden Globes, hosted by Ricky Gervais, are being presented live from Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, on NBC.
