BRITS REIGN AT THE GOLDEN GLOBES

With big wins for The Night Manager and The Crown, British stars certainly made their mark at the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards, held at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, on the evening of Sunday 8 January 2017.

Some of the nation’s favourite actors received accolades – from Tom Hiddleston to Olivia Colman and Hugh Laurie, who all won awards for their roles in the hugely popular BBC drama The Night Manager.

Tom Hiddleston won Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television, while Olivia Colman won Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television, and Hugh Laurie won Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.

Relative newcomer Claire Foy, who is certainly getting to grips with royal roles after playing Anne Boleyn in Wolf Hall and enthralling audiences as a young Queen Elizabeth II in Netflix-original drama The Crown, won Best Performance By An Actress In A Television Series – Drama for her role in The Crown.

Other Brits taking to the stage include Sting – the original English Man in New York – who presented the awards alongside Carrie Underwood, and Eddie Redmayne. Redmayne somehow escaped a nomination this year, but presented an award – looking Bond-sharp as ever – alongside Jessica Chastain.

The winner of one of the most coveted awards – Best Motion Picture – went to La La Land, which swept the board with seven awards including best acting awards for Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone and best director for Damien Chazelle.

The awards were not without controversy, with both Meryl Streep and Hugh Laurie using their platform when receiving awards to criticise the policies of incoming US President Donald Trump.
