Golden Globes proved to be a defining era for TV with The Crown beating so many incredible shows to win Best Drama. Game of Thrones missed out yet again, but a major win for Netflix.
The Crown is a win for Netflix
Netflix’s royal epic tells the story of the British royal family set in the 1950s. Netflix has invested millions into its original production arm, but this is the first time that a streaming service won in the best drama or comedy category at the Globes.
THE CROWN BEAT SHOWS INCLUDING GAME OF THRONES AND STRANGER THINGS TO WIN THE BEST TV DRAMA SERIES TITLE.
Claire Foy also won Best Actress for her part in the TV drama playing Queen Elizabeth, saying: “She has been at the centre of the world for 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.”
The Night Manager was the biggest winner.
The six-part thriller was adapted from the 1993 John Le Carre novel. Three stars of BBC spy drama The Night Manager – Tom Hiddleston, Olivia Colman and Hugh Laurie also won awards for Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actor in The Night Manager.
Hiddleston won the best performance by an actor in a mini-series or TV movie for playing a hotel night manager who is recruited by the British government to infiltrate an arms dealer’s inner circle.
“Well, this is lovely,” Hiddleston said in his acceptance speech. “Thank you.”
Olivia Colman was named best supporting actress in a series, mini-series or TV movie. However, Colman was gutted not to attend the ceremony to collect her award.
The arms dealer was played by Hugh Laurie, who won best supporting actor in a series, mini-series or TV movie.
“Thank you to the HFPA for this amazing honour,” he said. “I suppose made more amazing by the fact that I’ll be able to say I won this at the last ever Golden Globes.”
The People V. O.J.Simpson
The People v OJ Simpson: American Crime Story also won two awards from its five nominations – best mini-series or TV movie, and best mini-series or TV movie actress for Sarah Paulson.
