It was a successful night for British talent at this year’s Emmy Awards. Helen Mirren scooped Best Actress for her role in Elizabeth I, whilst Jeremy Irons was named Best Supporting Actor at the awards ceremony, held in Los Angeles. Helen praised the show’s writers saying that without them she wouldn’t have won the award, her third Emmy. Meanwhile Scottish actress Kelly Macdonald took home the Best Supporting Actress award for her role in The Girl in The Café, whilst Ricky Gervais and his crew scooped the Best Comedy trophy for the U.S. version of The Office. Congratulations to all of them!

Glad to see she won. I've been a fan since the crime series where she played a detective. Sorry I can't remember the name. No coffee yet. I'm sure you know since it's BBC. The American version of The Office isn't as good as the original, but I'm warming up to it.

Yes Helen Mirren is one of the great actresses of our time. The crime series is Prime Suspect. I like that too Sheila. A new series is going to be starting soon here in England. Haven't seen the American version of The Office but the British one is great.
