The Netflix series’ Emma Corrin, who portrayed the late Princess Diana, scooped the coveted Best Actress trophy, while her co-star Josh O’Connor, who won acclaim for his portrayal of Prince Charles, won Best Actor.

Brits proved to be a dominating force with Rosamund Pike (I Care a Lot), Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm), Daniel Kaluuya (Judas and the Black Messiah), John Boyega (Small Axe), Anya Taylor-Joy (The Queen’s Gambit) and  Gillian Anderson (The Crown) also among those walking away with gongs.
