Irish actor Andrew Scott picked up the best supporting actor in a comedy series gong in the TV category at Sunday night’s Critics’ Choice Awards for his role as the ‘hot priest’ in Fleabag.
The show’s creator and star, Phoebe-Waller Bridge, won best actress in a comedy series while the series was named best comedy series.
HBO’s bitingly funny Succession was named best drama in TV.
In the movie categories, Joaquin Phoenix won best actor for his role in Joker while Renee Zellweger claimed best actress for Judy, giving them extra momentum ahead of nex month’s Oscars.
Seen by many as a reliable indicator ahead of the Oscars, the Critics’ Choice Awards honour the best in TV and film each year.
Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood, meanwhile, triumphed over rivals including 1917, The Irishman and Marriage Story, which gives it a boost ahead of next month’s Oscars.
