Golden Globes 2021: British actors Daniel Kaluuya and John Boyega win first awards of night


Emma Corrin thanked Princess Diana as she was awarded Best Television Actress in a Drama Series for her role in The Crown at Sunday’s 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

The 25-year-old actress – who plays Diana in The Netflix hit series – appeared virtually at the ceremony and was left almost speechless when her name was announced, as costar Olivia Coleman cheered her on. 

Brits dominated the night as The Crown came away with multiple awards during the night, including Best Actor in a TV Series which went to Josh O’Connor, 30, who plays Prince Charles to Emma’s Lady Di.

As the night progressed, The Crown – which chronicles the life of Queen Elizabeth II from the 1940s to modern times – swept the board as it also picked up Best Drama Series. The show won the same accolade in 2017.

Following that, Gillian Anderson, who portrays former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the drama, scooped Best Supporting Actress in a Television Series.

Emma beat costar Olivia Colman, Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer, Ozark’s Laura Linney and Ratched’s Sarah Paulson in the best actress in a TV drama category.

After Emma’s name was announced, Olivia was cheering for her and stood up to give her a round of applause.

Rosamund, 42, who plays a corrupt legal guardian in the film, was presented her award by Ben Stiller.

The actress gave a jokey speech as she thanked the ‘broken American legal system’ for helping to make the movie. 

She also skewered Rudy Giuliani as she referenced the infamous scene from the Borat sequel starring Maria Bakalova.

She quipped: ‘In my movie, I had to swim up from a sinking car… I think I still would rather do that than be in a room with Rudy Giuliani. So, Maria, I salute your brilliance and your bravery.’

At the start of the ceremony, Daniel Kaluuya, 32, took home the first award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture for his role as Fred Hampton in Judas and the Black Messiah.

That was quickly followed by John Boyega who received the gong for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Supporting Role as Leroy Logan in Small Axe.

Laura Dern presented the first award of the night and Daniel’s moment was almost ruined when he experienced technical difficulties during his win.

The camera cut back to Laura as Daniel’s audio seemed to not be working before he was then immediately shown back on the broadcast. 

Daniel became teary eyed during his acceptance speech as he said: ‘Man this took it out of me – I gave it everything.

He said: ‘Can you hear me now? All right, cool. We got this. Thank you for the accolade, thank you to my mom, my sister, my niece. Yo, I used to listen to a song, I used to listen to a song before every speech. Thank you for “The game is mine.’

‘I want to thank, it takes a village to raise a film, I would like to thank our leader, for your vision and collaboration, and Ryan — and Charles King, everyone at macro, like to thank Warner Bros., and I like to thank the incredible cast, you know, I stand with you, my bro. 

‘All the crew, all the cast, the rest of the cast and my comrades, all the crew in Cleveland, we have done it.’

Meanwhile, John Boyega thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press for the honour and joked he was wearing his tracksuit bottoms for the virtual ceremony.

He said: ‘Thank you so much to HFPA this is such a shock…. I got trakkie bottoms on! I am so excited,’ before adding that he thought he was just going to go to bed for the evening. 

John was nominated alongside Daniel Levy, Brendan Gleeson, Jim Parsons and Donald Sutherland. 

Rounding out the Brit wins was Argentine-British actress Anya Taylor-Joy, who won Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series for The Queen’s Gambit and Sacha Baron Cohen, who took home the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical for Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.

The 78th Golden Globe Awards was originally due to take place in early January but was postponed until Sunday February 28 as Hollywood continues to adjust to the coronavirus pandemic and new safety guidelines.

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have returned as hosts for the fourth time after previously doing the honour in 2013, 2014 and 2015.

The Golden Globes 2021 is the first time the awards show has been broadcast from two separate coasts with the nominees announced virtually.

Fey, 50, is broadcasting from atop New York City’s Rockefeller Center in the Rainbow Room and Poehler, 49, in Los Angeles at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where the ceremony is usually held annually.

Nominees will be tuning into the ceremony remotely but presenters have been asked to appear in person.
