Matt LeBlanc won the Golden Globe on Sunday for his self-referential role on Showtime’s comedy “Episodes.”

LeBlanc plays himself on the show, which involves a British writing team who moves to Hollywood to remake their hit sitcom. He beat out Alec Baldwin of NBC’s “30 Rock,” David Duchovny of Showtime’s “Californication,” Johnny Galecki of CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” and Thomas Jane of HBO’s since-canceled “Hung.”


This was LeBlanc’s fourth Globe nomination. He was nominated once previously for NBC’s short-lived “Joey” and twice for the smash hit “Friends.”

The 69th annual Golden Globes ceremony was broadcast nationwide on NBC from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.
