Golden Globes 2014: Jacqueline Bisset first Brit to win
Jacqueline Bisset is Britain's first actress to triumph at the Golden Globes in a night which is expected to be dominated by British success.
The 69-year-old won her gong for best supporting actress in a series, mini-series or movie in the BBC's Dancing On The Edge, beating fellow Brit and White Queen star Janet McTeer.
Bisset told the Associated Press: "I didn't think I was going to win. Sorry it took so long (to get on stage) I was in a daze."
Stars have flocked in their finest couture to the Los Angeles show, organised by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), which are seen as a pointer for who will challenge for Oscars honours in March.
Three of the five nominees for best mini-series or movie were from the BBC with Dancing On The Edge, Top Of The Lake and White Queen all recognised.
BBC drama controller Ben Stephenson said: "BBC Drama's ten nominations in today's Golden Globes reinforces our international reputation and position as the very best producers of drama both at home and across the pond."
