Ah yes, the category that gives new meaning to the term "drama queen."
In 2018, it was Elisabeth Moss for The Handmaid's Tale. Then in 2019, it was Sandra Oh for Killing Eve (we’ll never forget her adorable parents). And now, the Golden Globes has crowned another Best Actress in a Drama Series.
During the 77th annual Golden Globes, Olivia Colman took home the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, Drama for her role as Queen Elizabeth in The Crown.
Other nominees included Jennifer Aniston for The Morning Show, Jodi Comer for Killing Eve, Nicole Kidman for Big Little Lies and Reese Witherspoon for The Morning Show. Yep, that’s two nominations for the Apple TV+ show.
If you didn’t know, Aniston and Witherspoon have acted together prior to TMS—they played two of the Green sisters in Friends. No surprise, Friends fans were quick to point out that all three of the Green sisters were nominated for Globes this eve, including Christina Applegate (Dead to Me).
Witherspoon, 43, and Applegate, 48, both appeared on the hit sitcom as the spoiled sisters to Aniston’s Rachel Green, but the trio never shared the same scene.
As for the other nominees, Colman previously won the Globe for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy Motion Picture for her role in The Favourite and Comer took home the Emmy for Lead Actress in a Drama Series for Killing Eve. Talk about an impressive group of women.
Congrats, Colman! Very well deserved.
