VIDEO: Phoebe Waller-Bridge Accepts Two Awards for FLEABAG at the 2020 GOLDEN GLOBES!
Fleabag took home two awards during the 2020 Golden Globes on Sunday, January 5! The series took home Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy and the show's creator, Phoebe Waller-Bridge won the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Musical or Comedy.
In her speech for Best Actress, Waller-Bridge thanked Andrew Scott, who joined the show in the second season, saying, "There was a lot of talk about the chemistry of us in the show, but he could have chemistry with a pebble. I loved being Andrew's pebble in this. Thank you so much for bringing so much fire to this season."
Waller-Bridge thanked former President Barack Obama for including Fleabag on his Top TV of 2019 list during her second speech. She said, "Personally, I would like to also thank Obama for putting us on his list," she said. "As some of you may know, he's always been on mine. And if you don't get that, please watch season one of Fleabag really, really quickly."
