There might be only one actress in the world who’s had a better year than Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and that’s her Fleabag co-star and TV stepmother, Olivia Colman.
Last January, the British actress–little known in the U.S. before then–won her first Golden Globe, for playing Queen Anne in the film The Favourite. A month later, she took home the best actress Oscar for the film–beating the predicted winner, Glenn Close. Soon after, Coleman won the role of Queen Elizabeth the II for seasons three and four of Netflix’s The Crown.
Now, just a year later, Olivia Colman’s gotten won her second Golden Globe, this time for best actress in a television drama. Her acceptance speech gave away her own complete shock at her hot streak: “I said I had money on someone else winning,” Colman said in her red, puffy-sleeved gown. “I don’t just feel like I’m living someone else’s life, now I feel like I won someone else’s award.”
Next up is her new film The Father, alongside Anthony Hopkins, and another season of The Crown. Once that wraps, she’ll begin a new HBO mini series called Landscapers from director Alexander Payne. We hope she finds spare time to write some awards acceptance speeches–it sounds like she might need them.
