Olivia Colman Drunkenly Congratulating 'Fleabag' Was the Best Part of the Golden Globes
The British actress wasn't seated at the Fleabag table, though she did appear in the show as the title character's stepmother. So it was especially endearing when she congratulated Phoebe Waller-Bridge and the show on its success.
"I don't know what to say because I genuinely had already got a little bit boozy because I thought this wasn't going to happen," she said, kicking off a hilariously unprepared speech.
"I'm completely stumped," she continued.
After another awkward pause, she said, "Fleabag! Yay!"
She closed by expressing her admiration for all the stars in the room and how exciting it was to watch them all.
Watch the delightful speech and Twitter's reaction to it below.
Olivia Colman underestimating her chances of winning awards and getting drunk and then winning the award is one of my favorite long-running gags.— R. Eric Thomas (@oureric) January 6, 2020

I really hope Olivia Colman keeps winning an award per year so we can always have someone that charming and real in the middle of these ceremonies. pic.twitter.com/JzadBxwEbr— Mason Bockelman (@MasonBockelman) January 6, 2020
