Colman – The Crown season three‘s Queen Elizabeth II-in-waiting – picked up the award for best actress in a musical or comedy (the Globes are split up into “drama” and “musical or comedy”) for Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Favourite, while Madden took home the statue for best actor in a TV drama for his role in Bodyguard. The BBC show has become something of a hit over in the US, too, after its release on Netflix late last year.

On top of this, Ben Whishaw was awarded for his turn as Norman Scott in A Very English Scandal in the TV miniseries category, and British actor Christian Bale picked up a gong for best actor in a musical or comedy for his portrayal of Dick Cheney in Vice.

There were plenty of surprises across the board on the night, with Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody taking home the award for best drama, and its lead Rami Malek winning best actor for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury. A Star is Born, which had been widely tipped to sweep the board in awards season, was only awarded for best song, with stars Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga beaten out in the acting categories by Malek and Glenn Close (The Wife) respectively.

In the TV awards, Netflix’s The Kominsky Method won for best musical/comedy, and Globes co-host Sandra Oh won for best actress in a TV drama for Killing Eve after being overlooked at last year’s Emmys. Darren Criss also took home a statue, quite rightly, for The Assassination of Gianni Versace, while The Americans celebrated with a best drama series win for its final run.
