“THE CROWN” was this year’s big Golden Globe Awards winner, taking four accolades.

Netflix’s regal drama scooped one of the evening’s biggest honours, Best Television Series, Drama, while cast members Josh O’Connor, Emma Corrin, and Gillian Anderson each took acting accolades at Sunday’s ceremony, which was staged in both New York and Los Angeles, with the winners accepting remotely from home.

Josh and Emma – who played Prince Charles and Princess Diana – were honoured with Best Performance by an Actor and Actress in a Television Series, Drama respectively, while Gillian Anderson’s portrayal of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher saw her take the Best Supporting Actress, Television honour.

Accepting the Best Television Series, Drama honour, showrunner Peter Morgan lamented the fact the ceremony wasn’t being held in person.

He said: “I’m just sorry I’m sitting here in my tragic little office, nut surrounded by the people who make this show such a pleasure to make.

“Olivia, Tobias, Helena, Gillian, Emma, Josh, Erin, the directors, my wonderful producers, the editor, the composer …

“Quite frankly I miss not being with my fellow nominees in that wonderful room, that crazy room. I’m glad I’m not having to face the room making the speech, it’s always the most fun awards show.”

Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy went to “Schitt’s Creek”, with its star Catherine O’Hara taking Best Actress in a TV Series, Musical or Comedy, though her co-star Eugene Levy missed out on the Best Actor in a TV Series, Musical or Comedy award, which went to Jason Sudeikis for “Ted Lasso”.

“The Queen’s Gambit” also had two wins, for Best Limited Series, Anthology Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television and Best Actress in a Limited Series, Anthology Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television for its star Anya Taylor-Joy.

In the movie categories, Chloe Zhao became only the second female filmmaker to take the Best Director prize, while her work “Nomadland” also took the coveted Best Motion Picture, Drama honour.

Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy went to “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm”, for which its star, Sacha Baron Cohen – who also won Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy – paid tribute to the film’s crew, who had run “the risk of getting arrested, the risk of getting Covid” in making the movie.

He added: “They did that because we all believed so deeply in releasing this movie before the election to show the danger of lies, hates, conspiracies and the power of truth, empathy and democracy.”

Elsewhere at the ceremony, the late Chadwick Boseman was posthumously honoured with the Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama award for his work on “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” and Andra Day was a surprise winner of Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama for “The United States vs. Billie Holiday”.
