Tom Hiddleston, Olivia Colman and Hugh Laurie were amongst some of the big winners on the night for their work in The Night Manager, whilst Sarah Paulson and American Crime Story: The People v OJ Simpson were also celebrated.

Hiddleston said “this is lovely” upon accepting his award, before thanking the crowd and those watching and dedicating the win to aid workers in South Sudan where he had recently travelled.

Laurie added a little humour to his own speech, referencing US President-elect Donald Trump. He said: “Thank you to the HFPA for this amazing honour. I suppose made more amazing by the fact that I’ll be able to say I won this at the last ever Golden Globes. I don’t mean to be gloomy. It’s just that it has ‘Hollywood’, ‘foreign’ and ‘press’ in the title.”

Netflix original series The Crown took home this year’s prize for Best TV Drama Series, whilst Claire Foy’s work on the show as Queen Elizabeth II earned her the gong for Best Actress in a TV Drama Series.
