Whatever happened to last year's breakout stars?
The actress, who’d been a lightning rod for both praise and controversy on the back of her comedy series “Girls” in 2012, rung in 2013 with a pair of Golden Globes for best actress in a comedy and best comedy series. She’s nominated in both categories again, but Season 2 was a far less universally accessible thing; it went, in its 2013 season, from a show addressing the general malaise of Greenpoint post-grads to an exploration of a very particular protagonist. She also wrote for the New Yorker a lot. A good year!
