Golden Globes: U.K. Celebrates as Aaron Taylor-Johnson, 'The Night Manager' Cast Win Big

The U.K. is celebrating after a clutch of important wins for British talent at the 74th Golden Globe Awards.

The castmembers of The Night Manager, a co-production between the BBC and AMC, were the big Brit winners, with all three leading players picking up awards.

Peter Morgan's The Crown also picked up two big prizes. The Netflix show about a young Queen Elizabeth II won best TV drama and also saw star Claire Foy pick up best actress in a TV series, drama.

The big surprise of the night was Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who picked up a best supporting actor in any motion picture win for his role as a gang leader in Tom Ford's Nocturnal Animals. Taylor-Johnson beat out favorite Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), Jeff Bridges (Hell or High Water), Simon Helberg (Florence Foster Jenkins) and fellow Brit Dev Patel (Lion).

The six wins for British talent doubles the three Globes won at the 73rd edition of the awards. Last year, Wolf Hall won best TV movie, limited series, and there were individual prizes for Kate Winslet (best supporting actress in a motion picture for Steve Jobs) and Sam Smith (best original song for Spectre).
