This is just one of a million tiny details to emerge from last night’s Golden Globe Awards, a ceremony in which many things happened, not the least of which was Amy Poehler mocking British actors for the way they speak when they take American roles in movies (which is, as they say, rich).

Eddie Redmayne won best actor for his recreation of the life of Professor Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, and as he confessed from the podium, he had to cut short the honeymoon after his very sly and secretive recent wedding to Hannah Bagshawe just in order to attend. So it is just as well that he won, right newlyweds?

Here’s his speech in full:

Joanne Froggat from Downton Abbey won best supporting actress (drama) for her portrayal of Anna Bates. Her storyline dealt with consequences of sexual assault, and she was quick to credit not just the scripts and her fellow actors, but the women who had contacted her once those episodes had been aired:

And Ruth Wilson won best actress (drama) for her role in The Affair. Luther fans will already know she has a knack for speaking in a manner that dances across the line between sarcastic and sincere like a beetle on a hot car roof. This, as her acceptance speech proves, appears to be her natural speaking voice:
