The biggest TV winner at Sunday’s Golden Globes wasn’t “Game of Thrones” or “The People v. O.J. Simpson” or even the most expensive TV show ever, “The Crown.” It was a relatively little-seen miniseries that aired on AMC in the United States, “The Night Manager.”

HBO also had a rare night, albeit not in a good way. The channel was shut out at the Globes for the first time since Globes host Jimmy Fallon was in high school.

Here are some of the hidden numbers from the 2017 Golden Globes. You can also see how the series nominees stack up ratings-wise.

3: Golden Globe wins for “The Night Manager.” It took home three acting honors for stars Tom Hiddleston, Olivia Colman and Hugh Laurie.

2: Emmy wins for “The Night Manager” — for best direction in a limited series (Susanne Bier) and best music composition in a limited series.

4: Golden Globes for FX, the most for any TV provider on the night. The cable channel got two awards for “Atlanta” and two for “The People v. O.J. Simpson.”

1: Win for any network TV program — Tracee Ellis Ross took home the honor for lead actress in a TV series for “Black-ish.”

4: Years since over-the-air TV last had such a modest showing at the Globes. In 2013, the only win for a broadcast network was Maggie Smith’s victory for “Downton Abbey.”

7: Best series nominations for Netflix shows to date: Two each for “Orange Is the New Black” (comedy) and “House of Cards” and one each for dramas “The Crown,” “Narcos” and “Stranger Things.”

1: Best series wins for Netflix shows following “The Crown’s” victory Sunday.

$130 million: Reported budget for “The Crown,” making it the most expensive season of television ever produced.

26: Years since the last Golden Globes where HBO didn’t win any awards, in 1991.

103: Golden Globe wins for HBO productions since then.
