Emmys 2021 – Olivia Colman wins the first Emmy for leading actress in ‘The Crown’

Olivia Colman won her first Emmy Award as a lead actress in drama series for her portrayal Queen Elizabeth in Season 4’s ‘The Crown. Colman said that she enjoyed every moment of the series and can’t wait to see what comes next.

Colman’s win is somewhat surprising, since the Emmys were viewed as a contest between Colman’s ‘The Crown,’ co-star Emma Corrin and ‘Pose,’ Mj Rodriguez. Variety.com reports.

 

The actress was surprised when she gave her speech at the London gathering of ‘The Crown’.

She said, “I would have placed money on that not happening.” “This is incredible. I want to thank you so much. Season 4 was Colman’s last turn as Queen Elizabeth.

Imelda Staunton, an actress, will replace Colman, just as Claire Foy did for Claire Foy.

Colman stated, “I loved every moment of it, so I can’t wait for what happens next.”

Although she kept her comments short, she was choked up when she thought about her father.

She cried and said, “I wish my father was here to witness this.” My daddy died during Covid and would have loved this. Colman’s win was a further boost to ‘The Crown,’ which won 11 awards this year, including Netflix’s first ever win in the drama series category.

She beat Corrin (‘The Crown’), Mj Rod (‘Pose’), Elisabeth Moss, (‘The Handmaid’s Tale’), Jurnee Slolett (‘Lovecraft County’) and Uzo Adu (‘In Treatment’).
