“I”d like to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press for giving this award to me and for putting me in a category with such incredible heavyweights whom I feel honoured to stand alongside” she continued.

Small screen phenomenon Downtown Abbey was also recognised in the best Mini series for Television category.
