Amazon had a big night at the 2018 Golden Globes, with high-profile wins for its hit comedy series, "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel."

Then it turned around and canceled three shows at once: "Jean-Claude Van Johnson," "One Mississippi," and "I Love Dick." More recently, it canceled "Mozart in the Jungle" in April, another Golden Globe winner, after four seasons.

The cancellations come as Amazon continues to clean house after a management shakeup.

In October, Amazon Studios head Roy Price resigned after allegations of sexual harassment surfaced, and CEO Jeff Bezos has reportedly directed a change in strategy at the company, which led to Amazon in November grabbing the rights to make a TV series based on "The Lord of the Rings."

Here are the shows Amazon has killed, along with their critic and audience ratings from Metacritic:
