An elevator brought Amazon's guests up to the Stardust Ballroom on the eighth floor of the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where silver vases held abundant orchid bouquets and a deejay presided over a proper dance floor after the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night.

Pizza-fueled party-goers celebrated the "Transparent" nominees and streaming service's wins for "Mozart in the Jungle," which took home the trophy for TV series, musical or comedy category, and, for its star Gael Garcia Bernal, the award for actor in a television series, musical or comedy.

Bernal said the celebration was as much for Gustavo Dudamel, music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, as for anyone present in the room. The show wouldn't exist, he said, if it weren’t for the example Dudamel set and for the classical music world's recognition of the many musicians from Spanish-speaking countries.

The show’s co-creator, Jason Schwartzman, said he first realized classical music "could be cool" several years ago at the L.A. Phil’s season-opening night at Walt Disney Concert Hall.

"I always thought that classical music had a sheen on it, like a protocol," Schwartzman said. "A lot of that comes from being a kid, from my mom saying, 'All right, let's go,' and then having to get all dressed up in a little blazer and thinking it's scary."

"Mozart in the Jungle," however, "is all about taking away the fear and showing that there's nothing to be afraid of," he said.
