The BBC’s three-part drama tells the story of Liberal Party member Thorpe, who fell from grace after he was put on trial for conspiracy and incitement to murder in connection to an attempted hit on his ex-lover, Scott. 

‘Wow, thank you so much, Hollywood Foreign Press,’ Ben, 38, told the Hollywood crowd. ‘I want to thank [director] Stephen Frears. What a legend. Thank you.’

‘I want to thank the BBC for continuing to make idiosyncratic and powerful work and for employing me again and again, thank you.’

‘There’s one person I really, really want to dedicate this award to and it’s the man I had the privilege to portray in this show, Norman Scott, who took on the establishment with courage and defiance that I find completely inspiring,’ Ben said said. 

‘He is a true queer hero and icon.’ 

The jubilant actor also thanked his costar Hugh, who lost out on a win, saying, ‘I have to thank Hugh Grant above all, for such an exquisite performance. It was amazing to watch you do that.’

Ben previously revealed in an interview with the Radio Times that Scott was ‘very moved’ when he was shown A Very English Scandal by director Stephen Frears. 

The actor said he felt the weight of doing justice to Scott, explaining: ‘I did feel a responsibility and at the same time I think any time you do something that’s based on real events you have to accept that it becomes a kind of fiction…’

‘Fortunately, we had this incredible script so you’re just trying to do the script justice. You can’t think much beyond that. But there is a responsibility and I felt a connection to Norman and I wanted for him to like it. Thankfully he does, we’re told.’

Accolade: It was Ben's first Golden Globe win, as he beat out talent such as Alan Arkin and Henry Winkler in the Best Supporting Actor category
