A fond farewell for The Americans. Series creator, writer and executive producer Joe Weisberg ripped off a lightning-fast thank you list of cast members, writers, directors, editors, “the best crew in the universe”, et al in accepting The Americans’ win for best drama series at tonight’s 76th Golden Globe Awards. Watch the speech above.
