Olivia Colman stole the show at the 76th annual Golden Globes ceremony in California.

Not only did she win an award for her part in The Favourite, but the British actress also won at giving one of the best acceptance speeches at the prestigious awards ceremony when she opened with “Cor blimey!” and addressed fellow actresses Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz as her “bitches”.

As the camera panned to the audience, stars including Weisz and Stone were seen laughing and cheering their beloved co-star on.

What did Olivia Colman win?

Colman won the award for best actress in a motion picture drama for her portrayal of Queen Anne in The Favourite.

What did she say?

Having picked up her award, the former Broadchurch actress faced the audience and began by declaring: “Cor blimey, thank you so much. I’m not going to cry because my entire table will point and laugh at me,” before going on to praise the director of the film.

“Yorgos, thank you the most muchly and ma bitches, Emma and Rachel, thank you, every second of working with you was such a joy and I was so sad that it finished.

“I would like to tell you how much this film means to me but I can’t think of it because I’m too excited. I just had a fucking blast, it was amazing. I went on a private jet and I ate constantly throughout the film and it was brilliant and I promise I will keep on enjoying this, because it’s amazing.”

Having left the audience in stitches, Colman finished her speech by calling out to her family and telling them: “Ed and the kids, look! Yay!”

Reaction

Having decided to give the audience and viewers at home a different kind of acceptance speech, Colman sparked a social media frenzy as viewers took to Twitter to declare how great she was for her unexpected speech.

“Olivia Colman is a hilarious, wonderful & talented TREASURE. Imagine if she wins an Oscar. Imagine what THAT speech will be like! #corblimey #goldenglobes,” wrote one fan, whilst another commented: “Olivia Colman calling Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz her bitches during the acceptance speech is already the highlight of 2019. #GoldenGlobes.”

Appreciating the fact that Colman was thankful for the food she had received on the trip ahead of the ceremony, a third user commented: “Olivia Colman talking about sandwiches in her #GoldenGlobes speech is deeply inspiring.”

The Crown may not be nominated for any Golden Globe awards tonight (since season three won’t arrive until later this year), but the star-studded cast still made a stunning appearance on the red carpet.

Claire Foy, who played Queen Elizabeth in the first two seasons in The Crown, is nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture for her role as Janet Armstrong in First Man. This is the third Golden Globe nomination for Foy, who famously won for her work on The Crown in 2017.

The actress wore a yellow gown on the red carpet.

But Foy isn’t the only Queen at tonight’s Golden Globe Awards: Olivia Colman, who is taking over the role of Queen Elizabeth next season on The Crown, also made an appearance on the Globes red carpet. Colman is nominated tonight for another regal role: the actress received a Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy nom for her portrayal of Queen Anne in The Favourite.

Colman wore a simple black gown, accented with a fishnet-like, sparkling fabric around her neck and arms.

Here’s hoping Foy and Colman meet up during the Golden Globes to take one seriously royal selfie—and maybe to swap a few tips on how to best portray the British monarch.

The Night Manager star Olivia Colman said she was “gutted” she missed the chance to pick up an award in person at the Golden Globes in the US on Sunday.

The British star won best supporting actress in a series, mini-series or TV movie for her role as an intelligence officer in the BBC drama.

Colman chose not to attend as she is about to start filming a new adaptation of Murder on the Orient Express.
“It was a gamble not to go but I thought ‘I bet I don’t win'”.

She is starring opposite Dame Judi Dench in Sir Kenneth Branagh’s version of the famous Agatha Christie tale.
She said: “I can’t believe I was not there but it feels like the wrong thing not being there for the first week of a new job.

“I’m playing Judi Dench’s maid and I want her to be so impressed because she is my hero. I have to be good and I don’t want to be that person who turns up jetlagged but now I sort of think they would have forgiven me.”
Colman said she was in bed at home by 2200 on Sunday and only found out about her win when she switched her phone on at 0700.
She said: “I had all these voicemails from the director Susanne Bier saying, ‘turn your phone on!’ Now I’m so gutted I’m not there. It’s such an enormous honour, I’m beside myself.”
Colman beat fellow Brits Lena Headey (Game Of Thrones) and Thandie Newton (Westworld) as well as This Is Us actresses Chrissy Metz and Mandy Moore to her award.
The Broadchurch star said: “I looked at the list and thought ‘I won’t win in that group’.”
Colman said she regretted she had missed the chance to celebrate with her co-stars, Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie, who also won Globes.
“I bet they know how to have a good time. I was always pregnant when we were filming but I could have got wellied with them all last night.”
Her award was collected for her by presenters Kristen Bell and Cuba Gooding Jr.
Colman joked: “Don’t wash it! Don’t polish it if they have touched it!
“I’m clearing everything off the mantelpiece, it’s going right in the middle.
“Cool people put their Baftas and things in the downstairs loo but mine are on the mantelpiece.”
