Amazon's Transparent on Sunday won the Golden Globe for best TV series, musical or comedy and the show's star Jeffrey Tambor won best actor.

Transparent made history as the first online comedy or drama to win a Golden Globe.

The show's 10-episode first season debuted September 26 on Amazon Prime, the online retailer's streaming service.

The original series created and directed by Jill Soloway (Six Feet Under, United States of Tara), stars Tambor (Arrested Development) as Moira, a transgender woman. Moira's adult children are played by Gaby Hoffmann, Jay Duplass and Amy Landecker, whose character is either bisexual or gay. Judith Light and Carrie Brownstein also appear on the comedy-drama.

Soloway dedicated the win to the memory of Leelah Alcorn, a 17-year-old transgender girl who recently ended her life after her parents attempted to alter her gender identity.

“This award is dedicated to the memory of Leelah Alcorn and too many trans people who died too young. … To love,” Soloway said.

Tambor added: “I would like to dedicate my performance and this award to the transgender community. Thank you for your inspiration, thank you for your patience and thank you for letting us be a part of the change.”

“This is about changing people's lives,” Tambor later told reporters backstage.

Amazon recently renewed Transparent for a second season.
