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!
