Olivia Colman Called Her Costars "Ma Bitches" At The Golden Globes And People Loved It

"Olivia Colman calling Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone her bitches is the energy I'm carrying into 2019."

Olivia Colman: one of Britain's finest actors. Known for her roles in Fleabag, Hot Fuzz, and Broadchurch, she's also a literal queen (she is due to take over from Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II in The Crown later this year).

And last night at the Golden Globes, Colman was named Best Actress for her portrayal of Queen Anne in The Favourite, a film that is about a love triangle between her, Sarah, the Duchess of Marlborough (Rachel Weisz), and Abigail Hill (Emma Stone).

So during her acceptance speech, Colman said: "Cor blimey ... ma bitches, Emma and Rachel, thank you."

She then said: "I had a fucking blast, it was amazing."

People were very much here for it.

I believe that anyone who thanks "my bitches" in an acceptance speech is clearly one of my people. Come home, Olivia Colman.

It'd be OK if the Oscars were Olivia Colman, Emma Stone, and Rachel Weisz winking at each other for three hours.

Olivia Colman calling Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz her bitches followed by Janelle Monae walking on stage was God saying:

She then made this deeply relatable comment about what starring in The Favourite was like.

And why did Colman deserve to win? Pretty much for this scene and this scene alone.
