Entertainment News Update: The 77th Golden Globe Awards are taking place in Los Angeles, with Phoebe Waller-Bridge among the winners. The British star was named best actress in a TV series (musical or comedy) for her BBC sitcom Fleabag.
Olivia Colman, one of Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag co-stars, was also honoured, for playing The Queen in the third series of The Crown. The British Oscar-winner said she had not expected to win and had gotten “a little bit boozy” as a result.
“I had money on this not happening,” she said as she was named best actress in a drama series.
“For the last year I feel I’ve been living someone else’s life, and now I feel I’ve won someone else’s award.”
Claire Foy, Colman’s predecessor on The Crown, also won a Golden Globe for playing The Queen in the Netflix drama. Colman accepted her prize while wearing a ring promoting ERA 50:50, a campaign advocating equal gender representation on British stage and screen.
As she collected her award, Waller-Bridge thanked another of her co-stars, Andrew Scott, for bringing “so much fire” to Fleabag’s second season.
“He could have chemistry with a pebble,” she said of the Irish actor, who played the “Hot Priest” in the show.
Fleabag went on to be named best TV series (musical or comedy) at the star-studded ceremony.
“This means a huge amount to all of us,” said Waller-Bridge, who thanked Barack Obama “for putting us on his list”.
This was a reference to a recent tweet from the former US president, in which he called Fleabag “a TV show [from 2019] that I considered as powerful as movies”.
