Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Series — Musical or Comedy: Ramy Youssef, Ramy

On hearing his name announced as the winner: “I was just happy they pronounced it right. I was, like, is Jennifer Aniston going to be able to pronounce [my] name? She did it, or maybe it was Reese [Witherspoon]. It’s all a blur. Really cool. Just really amazing, again, for the show of this size to be recognized that way and very humbling. Yeah, I’m just very thankful.”

Best Actor — TV Series, Drama: Brian Cox, Succession

On whether or not he’s playing Rupert Murdoch in the HBO drama: “No. I am playing Logan Roy. Logan Roy is totally our creation. Rupert Murdoch has [expletive] all to do with it, and you can quote me on that. You know, I did have an incident in London [relatively] recently. I was in a cafe in Primrose Hill…ordering my latte, and someone tapped me on the shoulder and said, ‘We are loving your show…I mean, my wife finds it a little difficult at times, but on the whole, she’s really, really enjoying it.’ I said…’Why is your wife finding it difficult?’ He said, ‘Well, my wife is Elizabeth Murdoch.’ I said, ‘Oh, ah, well, yeah, I’m sorry.’ He said, ‘No. It’s fine.’ He said, ‘But can you go easy on her next season?’ I said, ‘We’ll do our best.’ That’s true.”

Executive producer Jesse Armstrong on if Waystar is going to be taken over by Disney in Season 3: “I think you’ve got a better question than I have an answer. That’s a good one. We are in the writers’ room right now, and I shouldn’t say too much about it.”

On when she’s going to return to the stage: “It’s the next thing I want to do. It’s the next thing I’m going to do, but I’ve got a little time to take off first. So, yeah, after I take off some time, then that will be the next thing I do.”

Best Television Series — Musical or Comedy: Fleabag

Sian Clifford on why Olivia Colman wasn’t on stage with the rest of the Fleabag company: “I think Olivia was waiting to hear whether she won or not, and I believe she has for The Crown, which we are absolutely thrilled for her.

Best Actress — TV Series, Musical or Comedy: Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Fleabag

On if she’s made the right decision about not doing a Season 3: “I haven’t changed my mind about Season 3. Actually, it feels even more like the right decision the further we go along this journey. I don’t know. Because it’s just a goodbye. It feels like we keep saying goodbye on these stages, but yeah, it felt like the right thing to do. And, also, with the movie, well, you are just going to have to wait and see. I haven’t got anything more to report on that yet.”

Best Actress — TV Series, Drama: Olivia Colman, The Crown

On what she’d do if she were to meet Queen Elizabeth: “I’d quite like to ask her what other jobs she would have liked had she had a choice. Yes, I think everybody says, ‘What’s in her handbag?’ But I don’t care what’s in her handbag. I’d quite like to know what she would have liked to have been if she had been able to choose what she wanted [to do].”

Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television: Chernobyl

Craig Mazin on where he was when the real-life Chernobyl occurred: “I was 15, and in the United States, the Challenger disaster had happened just about three months earlier, and so I think we were all in this state of kind of national mourning, and we had this interesting perspective on what it meant to experience a national tragedy. This was in the middle of the Cold War. I wonder if that hadn’t happened, if we would have viewed Chernobyl the same way.”

Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture

Laura Dern won for Marriage Story but was happy to take a few questions about her career.

On being Miss Golden Globe, 1982: “Times have changed. I remember how simple it seemed, with my grandma driving me up to the Hilton in her gray Toyota Corolla, and I changed in the bathroom. I feel like there were eight of us here. So, this is very glamorous, which is also very fun, but there was something very beautiful about knowing this community at such a young age and having my grandma with me and the amazing Marin Ruth, a former Hollywood press member, very loving to me as a young kid poking around here.”

Laura Dern

On if she saw Ellen DeGeneres, whom she appeared with in her coming out episode of Ellen (the sitcom) in 1997: “I did not see Ellen tonight…[but] her speech really moved me and I was crying. That was an incredible moment to be part of, one of the great moments of my life to be there in support of that moment with her.”

On how often people yell out to her Renata’s line from Big Little Lies Season 2 ‘I will NOT not be rich!’: “Almost daily. It is amazing, and it is amazing how diverse a group it is, including a very frustrated father of a teenage girl in a Forever 21 yesterday, who looked overwhelmed and tried to be hip for his daughter and screamed out the line to me, and she was so embarrassed, and I loved him for it.”
