Screen grab/Netflix

‘The Crown’ has picked up four Golden Globes as the Hollywood awards season hits its stride.

Season Four of the hit Netflix show was named Best Television Series, Drama while three of its stars also won accolades.

Emma Corrin was named Best Actress in a TV Drama for her portrayal of Diana, Princess of Wales in Season Four of the Netflix show. Josh O’Connor won Best Actor in a TV Drama for his performance as The Prince of Wales. Gillian Anderson, who took on the role of Margaret Thatcher in the series, was named Best Supporting Actress, TV.

The stars all received their awards during a virtual ceremony which was hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler from opposite sides of the US.

The Crown has been a big winner at the Golden Globes before being named Best Television Series, Drama in 2016 when its first season aired. Claire Foy and Olivia Colman have both previously won Golden Globes for their portrayals of The Queen in the show.

The most recent season of The Crown has been its most controversial with debate focused, in particular, on the portrayal of the relationship between Charles and Diana from its earliest stages. Some commentators have criticised what they see as a negative interpretation of the Prince of Wales in the latest run of the programme.
