Matt-Bomer

Suds alums did alright for themselves at the 2015 Golden Globes. As The World Turns' favorite daughter Julianne Moore won Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama for her starring turn in Still Alice. Guiding Light graduate Matt Bomer took home Best Performance by a Supporting Actor in TV for The Normal Heart. Gina Rodriguez, who once appeared on CBS Daytime's The Bold and the Beautiful, won Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Series, Comedy as the titular Jane The Virgin.

In Still Alice, Moore portrays a woman dealing with early-onset Alzheimer's Disease. She beat out Cake star Jennifer Aniston (daughter of Days of Our Lives star John Aniston), The Theory of Everything's Felicity Jones, Gone Girl's Rosamund Pike and Wild's Reese Witherspoon.

Moore shot to fame playing identical half-sisters/cousins Frannie and Sabrina Hughes on ATWT in the mid-80's. Watch her acceptance speech below.

Bomer played Felix Hunter in HBO's The Normal Heart. The powerful TV movie explored the early days of the AIDS crisis.

Rodriguez's win just netted The CW major credibility. In Jane The Virgin (based on a Venezuelan telenovela), she portrays Jane Gloriana Villanueva, a young woman saving herself for marriage, who is accidentally inseminated with a gorgeous Miami hotelier's (fellow The Bold and the Beautiful grad Justin Baldoni) sperm sample.

Rodriguez bested Girls' creator/leading lady Lena Dunham, Nurse Jackie's Edie Falco, Veep's Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Orange Is The New Black's Taylor Schilling. Watch Rodriguez's emotional acceptance speech below.

Showtime's slow-burning marital sudser, The Affair won Best TV Series, Drama. The saga of a destructive, extramarital affair and murder mystery—told from both male and female perspectives—toppled Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, The Good Wife and House of Cards. Ruth Wilson, the serial's leading lady, also took home the Best Performance by an Actress, TV Golden Globe.
