And that year’s front-runner, 1917, more commended for its technical acumen, was not nominated by the display celebrities.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge lasted her awards Fleabag, a winner in the Emmys and the Golden Globes. Waller-Bridge added a SAG win for the best female actor in a comedy show and took a minute to reflect on the series’s parade of accolades.
