Olivia Colman thanks NHS as ‘The Crown’ takes home top prize at SAG Awards

Netflix’s The Crown has bagged all the top honours once again at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday.

The show, created by Peter Morgan, took home the award for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series.

Accepting the honour on behalf of the show’s cast, Olivia Colman, who played Queen Elizabeth II on the show, gave a tribute to healthcare workers who put their lives on the line for others during the global coronavirus pandemic.

“We’d like to say thank you very much, SAG-AFTRA, and to Peter Morgan for writing so many lovely parts. And of course, thank you to Netflix and Left Bank for everything you did for us, we all loved it, let’s do it again,” Colman said.

“We’d all like to say thank you to our wonderful national health service during this very peculiar year. We are very lucky in the U.K. to have you. Thank you all very much!” she added.
