Similarly, when losing the film category to Jodie Foster for The Mauritanian, Colman was seen clapping joyfully for her fellow actress.

The Crown ended up taking home the most awards in the TV categories during the ceremony, including Best Television Series – Drama, alongside acting wins for Corrin, Josh O’Connor and Gillian Anderson. Other big winners were The Queen’s Gambit and Schitt’s Creek, which took two awards each.

On the film side of things, Nomadland took home Best Motion Picture – Drama, while director ChloΓ© Zhao made history as only the second woman to win Best Director. Borat Subsequent Moviefilm and Soul also won two awards each.
