Although there were several top British nominees, only Jacqueline Bisset won Golden Globes 2014 for the Brits. Her victory was hard-earned and well deserved, but I think Judi Dench should have had better recognition.
Fans of British cinema will be disappointed after just one British star won a Golden Globe award on Sunday, despite Dame Judi Dench, Idris Elba and Chiwetel Ejiofor being included on the glittering 2014 nominations list.
Jacqueline Bisset picked up the sole British Golden Globe award for Best Supporting Actress in a TV Series for her performance as Lady Cremone in Stephen Poliakoff’s BBC drama, Dancing on the Edge. It was the first Golden Globe win for the 69-year-old, who lives in both the UK and Beverley Hills, California. Bisset has previously been Golden Globe nominated four times since 1969, when she was recognised in the Most Promising Newcomer category.
Bisset gave a lengthy and thoughtful speech, thanking her agents and “the people who have given me joy” before quoting her mother: “She used to say to me, go to hell and don’t come back”.

Congratulations to Jacqueline Bisset. She was first nominated 45 years ago, so to say it’s been a long wait is ridiculous. The Golden Globes seem to be a one-sided afair favoring the other side of the pond but maybe we can make a bigger difference next year.
