Olivia Colman won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series – Drama last night (January 5) for her performance in The Crown, but she used her acceptance speech to shout out Fleabag.
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.
