For those who don’t know, Brooklyn 99 is a comedy TV series with Andy Samberg that airs on Fox. The show hit the airwaves this past September and apparently, it’s good. So good, in fact, that the Golden Globes decided to award the show with best comedy series on television.
Twitter brought us everyone’s surprise, doubt and joy at the show’s big win, along with those who think the whole thing was a sham, because really, had anybody even heard of this show before?
Fans of the show hoped for a win, and sent threats over a possible loss.
And if Big Bang Theory wins over Brooklyn 99 I will send a very mean letter to someone I’m not sure who but someone. #GoldenGlobes

Haters were quick to express their distaste that no one, not even Chris Christie, was safe from.

They also had no problem saying the entire win was a sham.

But for real fans of the show, the award was more than just your average victory.
Brooklyn 99 is just wonderful. Sometimes the Globes really gets one right.

But really it’s amazing Brooklyn 99 won a Globe in its freshman season with such a diverse cast with such grown-up next-level comedy. — Natasha Simons (@natkid) January 13, 2014
With more than 700 retweets on this one, we’re thinking more people need to start watching the show.
