British stars were in force at the weekend in Hollywood, with Olivia Colman as the leader of a huge homegrown contingent in the run-up to the Golden Globes awards last night. Just as the great and good British talent was present at a sea of ​​preview parties, down-to-earth Olivia joked with the Daily Mail that her rallying cry is: & # 39; I have brought my own Tetley teabags with me! & # 39; She added: "Seriously, you have to bring your own tea to America because otherwise you do not know what you are being given. I do not drink fancy tea, only Tetley's. & # 39;

Quick change: Lily Collins on the Bafta bash, left, and later on another event, right. She spoke at the British Academy of Film and Television Art LA tea party at the chic Four Seasons hotel in Beverly Hills. Also enjoying that party was Phil Collins & daughter, Lily, currently playing Fantine in the BBC1 version of Les Miserables. Collins, 29, wore a cream and blue floral print tea dress, for a quick change in a flowing, translucent, multi-print dress – with her long hair swept up in a loose bun – for a cocktail party in a gallery on Sunset Boulevard. Another British actor at the Bafta party was Richard Madden, whose blond quiff made him look very different from his rough starring role in BBC-hit Bodyguard, for which he was nominated for the best actor in a TV drama. The Scot, 32, who also played Robb Stark in Game Of Thrones said that while he had been to Los Angeles many times, he was still waiting to make a movie there. Also at the Four Seasons were best actress nominees Emily Blunt, star of Mary Poppins Returns; Isla Fisher, actress wife of Sacha Baron Cohen; and Jodie Comer from Killing Eve, who was nominated for the best TV drama. Comer, the breakthrough of the BBC hit in which she plays a Russian assassin, said she just filmed a second series.

Also at the Four Seasons were best actress nominated Emily Blunt, star of Mary Poppins Returns Undersigned Olivia Colman, nominated for a best actress award for her delightful display of Queen Anne in The Favorite, posed for photos & # 39; s and hand in hand with co-stars Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone, depicting rival courtiers who compete for the favor of her character. Arthur said she liked the prize season, with everything that led to the Oscar ceremony on 24 February, but he often fails. "It is an incredible honor and a privilege, but also very embarrassing," she has told the Mail. & # 39; Some people say "well done" a lot, which is delicious. It is great and beautiful, but crazy. You must try to cut yourself down and remember who you are. & # 39; Tomorrow she will return to the set of Netflix drama The Crown, in which she portrays the current queen. & # 39; I'm going to do a terrible job on Tuesday. I must get to know my way, "she quipped. Colman takes over the Queen's role in The Crown's third series, replacing Claire Foy, who has won the honor – and a Globe best supporting actress -nomination – for her role in the Neil Armstrong film First Man and was also at the Bafta LA bash but did not stay long.
