Brian Cox Apologizes to Fellow Nominees for Winning at the 2020 Golden Globe Awards

Published

This year’s Golden Globe Awards has a lot of stirrups from Brian Cox apologizing to Joaquin Phoenix’s swearing.

In this case of Brian Cox, who won the award for Best Actor in a TV drama series for his role on Succession, an HBO series.

During the awarding at the Beverly Hilton, Cox was able to beat Kit Harrington of the Game of Thrones, Rami Malek of Mr. Robot, Tobias Menzies of the Crown, and Billy Porter of Pose. This award is the first-ever for Brian Cox in the Golden Globe Awards. The Succession also won the award for Best Drama Series earlier.

His speech during acceptance was about how meaningful this award is to him after decades in the business and even apologized to his fellow nominees for winning this one.

He started with, “I’m sorry. I mean, this kind of event does your head in. First of all, I want to apologize to my fellow nominees for winning this. I mean, I’m sorry. And that’s all I can say. I’m sorry, but I never expected this. And I’ve been in this business, well, next year, I’ve been in this business for 60 years.”

For those who don’t know him that much, he started at a very young age. Now at 73, he was jokingly saying, “I mean, I started when I was two. I just never thought this would ever happen to me, so I’m a wee bit shocked.”

This happy man also recognized and thanked the people that he works in with Succession, which includes Jesse Armstrong, and he proudly described him as an incredibly modest man, a talent, and a gift. He continued, “If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t have had this.”

At the backstage, Cox again emphasized his gratefulness for Armstrong. “Jesse won the prize. He’s a very modest man but such a genius at putting this show together. I owe it to him, if he hadn’t given me the role I wouldn’t be here. So, it means a lot.”

Cox is a Scottish actor who was recognized for his portrayal in King Lear. He also appeared in several movies such as Super Troopers, The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, X2, Braveheart, Rushmore, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Hannibal Lecter and a lot more. Aside from the Golden Globe award that he recently received, he also won an Emmy Award in the past and The Screen Actors Guild Awards.

In Succession, he plays the role of Logan Roy, a Murdoch-esque businessman. The series is speculated to be based on the world’s famous corporate brood.

According to Armstrong, Succession is not only based on one family or business but the show’s writers’ pore over the Wall Street Journal and Financial times and made some scripts about it. He said, “The show reflects reality.”

It seems like the next season will have better and more inspired workers after receiving two grand awards for the Golden Globes this year. The question now is how it would be taking it’s 3rd season, that remained to be unanswered.
