The 2019 Golden Globes ceremony welcomed on stage four British stars – Olivia Colman who won best actress in a comedy or musical, Richard Madden and Ben Whishaw, who both won TV awards, and Christian Bale, who won best actor in a musical or comedy.

Named best actress for her role as Queen Anne in The Favourite, Colman held the trophy high after her speech, sending a message to her family. Meanwhile, Bale, who was honoured for his role as Dick Cheney in Vice, gave one of the night’s most political moments.

The Golden Globes is the kickstart to the Hollywood awards season and, unlike the Oscars, it rewards TV as well.

Scottish actor Richard Madden picked up his prize for best TV drama actor in BBC One’s Bodyguard. The last episode of this TV series about a war veteran that works as a police sergeant whose mission is to protect the home secretary was watched by more than 17 million people in the UK. The series can also be found on Netflix.

Another TV winner was Ben Whishaw for his portrayal of Norman Scott in BBC One’s A Very English Scandal. He dedicated his award to the real Norman Scott, a former stable boy who claimed to have had an affair with politician Jeremy Thorpe in the 70s.

The surprise of the night came when Bohemian Rhapsody was announced as the winner of the night’s top Award – Best Drama – despite different expectations. Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born, which was nominated for several top prizes, only went home with the Best Song award.

The Best Song award was shared between Lady Gaga and British musician Mark Ronson for their hit – Shallow.
