Upon receiving her first-ever Golden Globe award from Ted Danson and Kerry Washington on the Beverly Hilton stage, Waller-Bridge thanked director Harry Bradbeer, director of photography Tony Miller and co-star Andrew Scott.
The actress began her speech thanking Scott, noting their onscreen chemistry.
“This really comes down to Andrew Scott, really,” she said. “”He can have chemistry with a pebble. … I love being Andrew’s pebble in this.”
Waller-Bridge also took the time to send a special “thank-you” to Miller, whom she said she looks at when her character breaks the fourth wall during the show.
“I’d love to find a camera now to thank you, Tony,” she said.
Later in the night, Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag won best TV comedy or musical, though Scott lost to Chernobyl‘s Stellan Skarsgard in the best supporting actor category.
While backstage after Fleabag‘s best comedy/musical win, Waller-Bridge offered her advice to young writers: “Write and write and write. Try to stay in the present as much as possible or find one friends you love and care about and try to make that one person laugh or cry. Write like you are not afraid. I have to remind myself every time I sit down to the computer to do it.”
When asked if she would ever do a Fleabag movie, Waller-Bridge said, “You are just going to have to wait and see.” (She was firm that there would be no third season to the series.)
The annual awards show saw Ricky Gervais return as host for a fifth time and aired on NBC from 5 to 8 p.m. PT.
