British TV nabs top prizes at Golden Globes

The Golden Globe awards have been very kind to British TV this year - well, if we’re talking about The Night Manager and The Crown, that is. Together, the two shows swept up five awards and a couple more nominations to boot.

The Crown, a venture commissioned by Netflix about the life of our Queen Liz, snapped up Best Television Series in the Drama category, as well as securing a Best Actress win for star Claire Foy.

Actors in BBC show The Night Manager, meanwhile, won three awards - Tom Hiddleston for his key role as Jonathan Pine, and Olivia Coleman and Hugh Laurie for their supporting roles.

Not a bad cop for Brit TV then - though they're the only shows from the UK that even got nominated.

The winners of the TV awards at the 2017 Golden Globes were:

  • Best Television Series: Drama - The Crown
  • Best Television Series: Musical/comedy - Atlanta
  • Best actor in a TV series: Drama - Billy Bob Thornton, Goliath
