British stars win big at 2020 Golden Globes
Fleabag, Rocketman and The Crown all took home awards.
British TV and film stars enjoyed plenty of success at last night’s 77th Golden Globe awards.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge won best actress in a TV series and best TV series (both in the musical or comedy category) for her popular BBC sitcom Fleabag.
Netflix’s The Crown netted Academy-Award winner and fellow Fleabag star Olivia Colman best performance by an actress in a drama series for her role as Queen Elizabeth II.
Sir Sam Mendes scored best director and best drama for 1917 while Taron Egerton took home best actor in a musical or comedy for his performance in Elton John biopic Rocketman.
Scottish actor Brian Cox won best actor in a drama for Jesse Armstrong viciously brilliant Succession, which also later took home best drama series.
Quentin Tarrantino’s ninth film Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood was the biggest winner of the night claiming best musical or comedy film, best screenplay and best supporting actor for star Brad Pitt.
Actress and rapper Awkwafina, real name Nora Lum, made history as the first woman of Asian descent to win best actress in a musical or comedy for The Farewell.
Elsewhere, it was a disappointing night for Academy-Award hopeful Marriage Story which took home just one of the six awards it was nominated for, with Laura Dern winning best supporting actress.
Martin Scorsese’s mob drama The Irishman also came away empty-handed despite fantastic reviews which described it as the best film of his career.
