Long Live the Queen! 'The Crown' Has a Big Night at the Golden Globes
By Philiana Ng
The Crown had a good night at the Golden Globes on Sunday.
Netflix’s extravagant period drama, which stars Claire Foy as a young Queen Elizabeth II at the start of her reign, took home two awards: Best Drama Series and Best Actress in a Drama Series for Foy’s stellar performance as the royal.
“Oh my god, I’m having an out-of-body experience!” Foy adorably said when she went onstage, admitting she was “shocked.” “When you play a real-life person it’s tricky, you rely very much on the people around you, so I’m going to dedicate this to all the people around me.”
The 32-year-old Brit also singled out her co-star, John Lithgow, who didn’t win for his portrayal of Winston Churchill.
“Big shout-out to John Lithgow!” she said. “And Matt Smith, I wish you were here. I really, really, really wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for some extraordinary women, one of them is Queen Elizabeth II. She has been at the center of the world for the past 63 years and I think the world could do with a few more at the center of it, if you ask me.”
