More The Crown! The show did have three nominations in this category and while Gillian Anderson’s take on Margaret Thatcher was divisive, it was definitely a sight to behold. She’s getting played off real quick which is providing a really chaotic energy to her list of names to thank.





WINNER: Jodie Foster (The Mauritanian) – best supporting actress in a film

A bit of a shock here with Jodie Foster winning for her under-the-radar role in fact-based drama The Mauritanian. She’s as shocked as we are and is scrambling together a speech off the cuff. It was a surprise that she was nominated so a win is something. She also has a dog who is difficult to wrangle so she’s essentially having to strangle him to keep him in place.





Golden Globe winner Minari is worth that premium rental (unlike many many others at that price) and here’s a piece we had recently on why it means so much





In case you haven’t seen it yet, here’s Fey and Poehler’s patchy opener:





Another special award here – this time for actor and activist Jane Fonda. There are pre-taped tributes from people such as Brie Larson and Kerry Washington before a reminder of her incredible, illustrious career both on screen and off, acting and fighting for what she believes in.

A curious selection of streamed celebrities watching her arrive including a not at all interested Jodie Foster. On stage, Fonda is talking about the importance of storytelling and how films can help open us up and create empathy. She also gives a shoutout to snubbed drama I May Destroy You for helping her understand sexual assault.

Fonda moves onto diversity in the industry and how we all need to expand the tend and allow more stories to be seen and heard. “Doing this simply means acknowledging what is true” she says. It’s a sharp, rousing speech.





WINNER: The Crown – best drama series

Well of course. Another win here for The Crown, its third tonight, and its sixth since it started. It’s become Netflix’s most reliable award-winner so they’ll be desperately searching for a prestige-y replacement when it ends soon.

Jason Sudeikis giving negative fucks has gone down well in a ceremony that is mostly not going down that well.

WINNER: Minari – best foreign language film

An increasingly controversial category here as the HFPA’s bizarre rules mean that no film in a foreign language can be nominated for the main best picture category, even though Minari is set in America with some English too. Stupid but predictable given the HFPA. The wonderful Minari was always going to win this one and it should be a key contender when the Oscar nominations are announced soon.

An errrrmmm telemedicine sketch now? OK. Lin-Manuel Miranda, Carey Mulligan, Don Cheadle, Glenn Close, Tina Fey and others asking weird, unfunny questions to doctors. Ironically it arrives just after Fey and Amy Poehler remarked on the viral moments from tonight’s show …

Another acting win for awards magnet The Crown for a very surprised and pleased Josh O’Connor. It’s the first speech that is getting kind of played off by music which is awkward as he ends it by talking about mental health and arts employees out of work during a pandemic. Nice job guys.

WINNER: Rosamund Pike (I Care a Lot) – best actress in a musical or comedy film

Oh wow, a big shock here. Many had expected Maria Bakalova to win for her incredible breakout performance in Borat 2 but Rosamund Pike slipped in at the end with her wonderfully icy turn in the pitch-black Netflix movie I Care a Lot. She deserves it and is clearly overwhelmed by the win yet provides a smart speech with a nice jab aimed at Rudy Giuliani because why not. This will be a big boost for her best actress Oscar campaign as the category is still in question with voting starting this week.
