British actress Olivia Colman, who was at the International Emmy Awards in New York on Monday night, nominated for her role as Detective Sergeant Ellie Miller in the TV series Broadchurch, admits she gets quite anxious before awards events.
Colman finds award shows “nerve-racking,” and “quite scary.” She even goes so far to say, “I get ready as slowly as possible in the hope they might be cancelled.”

Even so, Colman considers herself very fortunate given the other awards and general good fortune that’s come her way through a variety of acting jobs.
