Australian actor Elizabeth Debicki has been awarded a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Princess Diana in the final season of Netflix’s British royal family drama The Crown.
Up against Abby Elliott of The Bear, Christina Ricci of Yellowjackets, J. Smith-Cameron of Succession, Hannah Waddingham of Ted Lasso and Meryl Streep of Only Murders in the Building, Debicki came out victorious.
In taking the ‘Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Limited Series, Anthology Series or Motion Picture Made for Television’ category,” Debicki dedicated her win to her godmother, who recently passed away.
“I just wanna say thank you to my beloved and dear godmother who left us too quickly, too soon. This one’s for you, baby,” Debicki said through her tears.
The actor then went on to thank her co-star “children” in The Crown, Ed McVey, Rufus Kampa, Luther Ford and Flyn Edward, who play Diana’s sons, Prince William and Harry, in respective older and younger versions.
“Thank you to the creatives of this show for trusting me with this part, to our cast and crew, to my beautiful pretend children who I just adore,” Debicki continued.
“Thank you to my mum and my dad and Cash and Tommy, who are in Australia, hopefully in their pyjamas, watching this,” the actor added. “To my partner Christian who said ‘don’t thank me so that I’m not on television.'”
