Brits win big at the Golden Globe awards.

Stars of The Crown and The Night Manager were among the many British talents to receive awards at last night’s Golden Globes. 

Claire Foy, star of The Crown and The Night Manager’s Tom Hiddleston both received awards for their performances, whilst Hugh Laurie and Olivia Colman collected awards for supporting roles. 

Netflix Original The Crown charts the Queen’s early reign and has gone on to receive wide critical acclaim, also winning the Best TV Drama Series award.

BBC thriller The Night Manager saw Tom Hiddleston take a break from superhero and giant ape blockbusters to infiltrate a ring of arms dealers. 

Hugh Laurie also enjoyed success at the awards for his supporting role in the spy thriller. 

Claire Foy paid tribute to the Queen, who she played in The Crown, when she accepted the award. 

“I really wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for some extraordinary women, one is Queen Elizabeth II.

“She has been at the centre of the world the past 63 years and I think the world could do with a few more women at the centre of it if you ask me.”

British talent in films also enjoyed a successful evening, with Aaron Taylor Johnson of Kick-Ass and Godzilla fame winning for his role in the film Nocturnal Animals. 

Whilst Brits took home 6 of the awards, upcoming film La La Land dominated the show with 7 awards on its own, with stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone as well as director Damien Chazelle all taking home gold.
