Milly Alcock picking up award 'wasted' at Golden Globes is truly iconic
| Last updated
Milly Alcock proved she's just like the rest of us after appearing to be 'wasted' on stage at the Golden Globes last night.
Viewers described the 22-year-old star's moment as 'iconic' as they watched on in hysterics when she came up to receive the award for her part in House of the Dragon.
The hit Game of Thrones spinoff earned HBO the accolade of Best Drama TV Series, with Alcock joining her Rhaenyra Targaryen co-star Emma D'Arcy and season one co-showrunner and director Miguel Sapochnik on stage.
They appeared to be surprised at the outcome, having beat out competition from the likes of Better Call Saul, Ozark, The Crown and Severance at the 2023 event on Tuesday (10 January).
After taking the trophy, Sapochnik explains: "As you can tell, we didn't think we were going to win so I didn't get ready.
"Thank you very much, this is amazing. I've got to say, Severance is awesome, I loved that show.
"If I could've made House of the Dragon like Severance, I would've but it would have been a bit weird."
Sapochnik then turns his attention to Alcock and D'Arcy and asks for a round of applause for the season one stars.
To be fair, he could have said anything at this point, as many viewers back at home were more focused on Alcock as she giggled her way through the speech.
Now, obviously we can't say for sure that she was a little blotto - which she had every right to be, by the way.
But the online community seems to have made its mind up, with one person writing: "'Milly Alcock is so drunk RN lmao I love her #GoldenGlobes."
"Milly Alcock slightly drunk on Golden Globes holding Emma D'arcy with her life is iconic," said another, while a third added, "Milly Alcock drunk off her arse at the Golden Globes being my spirit animal is sending me."
A fourth chimed in: "Milly Alcock being absolutely wasted on stage because she didn’t think HOTD was going to win is the most teenage Rhaenyra thing and I am here for it."
Sharing a clip focusing on the Australian actor, a fifth wrote: "Milly Alcock wasted at the Golden Globes is top tier."
In short, the fans are even more in love with Alcock than they were since she first appeared in the HBO prequel.
Which is quite the feat considering she'd already built up a strong following as the young version of Rhaenyra.
Some other notable moments from last night's ceremony include Jennifer Coolidge's 'Steve Harvey' moment as she called the Golden Globes the Oscars and Ke Huy Quan's tearful speech as he thanked Steven Spielberg for giving him start in Hollywood.
