Olivia Colman proved every bit a humble hero as she candidly accepted the award for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy at the 2019 Golden Globes.

The actress, who bagged the gong for her role as Queen Anne in The Favourite, couldn’t stop smiling as she embraced her crowning moment with a very British speech.

Colman, 44, opened with “Cor blimey”, before later referring to her co-stars Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz as “ma b******” and thanking director Yorgos Lanthimos.

She also recalled noteworthy experiences during filming for the drama, including travelling on a private jet.

She then melted hearts, appearing to be in disbelief, as she told husband Ed Sinclair and children Hall, 12, and Finn, 14, to “look” at her on stage.

“Cor blimey, thank you so much. I'm not going to cry because my entire table will point and laugh at me as I've been crying all evening.

“Yorgos, thank you the most muchly and ma b******, Emma and Rachel, thank you, every second of working with you was such a joy and I was so sad that it finished.

"I would like to tell you how much this film meant to me but I can't think of it because I'm too excited.

"I went on a private jet and I ate constantly through the film and it was brilliant and I promise I will keep on enjoying this, because it's amazing.

"Ed and the kids, look! Yay!"
