Claire Foy wins Emmy for The Crown in night of surprises

18 Septembre, 2018, 19:10 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

The victory came after she was nominated in the same category a year ago for Season 1 of the series.

"This wasn't supposed to happen", said Foy, who beat Elisabeth Moss of The Handmaid's Tale, who had been strongly tipped to repeat her victory of past year, and Sandra Oh of Killing Eve, who would have become the first actor of Asian descent to win a top drama acting Emmy.

"This wasn't supposed to happen", Foy said after taking the stage to receive her award.

Though this marks Foy's first Emmy win for her role as The Crown's Queen Elizabeth II, it wasn't her first nomination.

Foy has had a unusual year with regards to The Crown. The actress admitted that she was "surprised" to find herself in the center of the controversy. "But I'm not [surprised about the interest in the story] in the sense that it was a female-led drama".

"The show goes on, which makes me so, so proud". She was up for this same award at the 2017 Emmys, though she lost out to The Handmaid's Tale star Elisabeth Moss.

Onstage on Monday, Foy dedicated the win to the next cast of The Crown, including Oliva Colman, who replaces her as the next iteration of Elizabeth.
