Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Comedy or Musical

The Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy was first awarded by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association as a separate category in 1951. Previously, there was a single award for "Best Actress in a Motion Picture" but the splitting allowed for recognition of it and the Best Actress – Drama.

The formal title has varied since its inception. In 2005, it was officially called: "Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical". As of 2014, the wording is "Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy".[1]

Aired over several episodes of Bruiser (from 28 February to 15 March 2000), it tells the tales of a uxoricidal middle-aged bespectacled man (Robert Webb) going into a variety of establishments looking for ways to kill his wife, always by first asking "Do you do poison?", or something along those lines. However, when questioned over his intentions, he is very defensive (in a library, whilst asking if you could fashion a book into a wieldable block, he responds to a uneasy librarian "What are you saying? I'm just looking for a fireside read. I just want to curl up with a good book. Have you got any books that make people curl up, permanently, in agony?" The sketch is well known due to its meme status on the internet.
