Most of us would be distraught if we lost out on a Golden Globe, but The Crown actress Olivia Coleman took losing like a true star.

The actress, who starred in the hit Netflix show was nominated in two categories for playing the Queen in The Crown and also for her role in A Father.

However, instead of looking upset when she didn't win, she did a victory dance for the winners - and it didn't go amiss by her fans, who took to Twitter to congratulate her on her amazing response.

Emma Corrin, who starred with her in The Crown was also nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Series, for her roles as Princess Diana. So, when the winner was announced the two actresses were side by side on the video link.
