Olivia Colman Thanks "My Bitches" Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz in Golden Globes Best Actress Speech
'The Favourite' actress won out over fellow nominees Emily Blunt, Elsie Fisher, Charlize Theron and Constance Wu for the honor.
Olivia Colman won the Golden Globe for best actress in a motion picture, comedy or musical on Sunday night.
The Favourite actress won out over fellow nominees Emily Blunt (Mary Poppins Returns), Elsie Fisher (Eighth Grade), Charlize Theron (Tully) and Constance Wu (Crazy Rich Asians) for the honor.
Upon accepting her award she joked that she wasn't going to cry because her table "would laugh" at her. She also thanked "my bitches," in reference to her castmates Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, who were also nominated for best supporting actress.
Colman, who plays the gout-ridden and grumpy Queen Anne in the period film, said she wanted to talk about how much the Yorgos Lanthimos-directed film meant to her but she "couldn't think of it" due to the nerves and excitement. She added, "I had a fucking blast!"
Of the intimate scenes between her, Stone and Weisz, Colman told the press backstage, "Love scenes with women are much easier because in my head I wasn't being unfaithful to my husband. Kissing a man just feels awful because you feel like you're being naughty. Kissing a woman feels much more fun."
This is the second Golden Globe win for the British actress. She previously won best supporting actress in a limited series in 2017 for her role on The Night Manager.
Queen Anne isn't the only royal Colman will have on her resume. She's set to take over for Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II on the upcoming third season of Netflix's awards-favorite The Crown.
