So it was solely proper that star and creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge return the favour.
The actress made a cheeky quip about one among Fleabag’s most notorious scenes whereas accepting the Golden Globe for greatest tv collection (musical or comedy).

And throughout her speech, Phoebe, 34, made positive to honour one among Fleabag’s bedroom inspirations.
She mentioned: ‘Personally, I’d additionally like to thank Obama for placing us on his listing. As a few of you could know, he’s at all times been on mine.

And after Obama wrote on his end-of-year film listing that he discovered Fleabag collection two to be as impactful as a film… effectively, we’re guessing he was up to velocity on what the primary character had been getting up to in collection one.
Elsewhere in her speech, Waller-Bridge thanked the forged, saying: ‘A huge thank you to everyone for supporting us so much. It’s all a bit gross however all of us grew to become greatest pals, which is ironic, as a result of the show is about such a lonely girl.’

‘I loved being Andrew’s pebble on this. Thank you a lot for bringing a lot hearth to this season.’
Unfortunately, Scott – who sparked a thousand crushes and memes along with his portrayal of the priest in collection two – missed out on the most effective supporting actor prize to Chernobyl’s Stellan Skarsgård.
