Amid its huge success with fans, commentators have lined up to criticise series four of The Crown. Friends of Prince Charles launched a blistering attack on the show last year, accusing producers of the hit Netflix drama of ‘trolling on a Hollywood budget’.

Some of the Prince’s closest confidantes have accused the streaming giant of exploiting the Royal Family’s pain for financial gain and raged that ‘fiction is presented as fact’ in its twisted version of events. 

Emily in Paris – the comedy-drama series about an American marketing executive working in Paris – has been nominated in the Best Television Series and Best Performance By An Actress In Actress in a Television Series (Lily Collins) categories. 

Lily was born in Guildford, Surrey and moved to LA when she was a child.

While a number of British stars swept the board, many Twitter users were enraged at the absence of Londoner Michaela Coel and her hit drama I May Destroy You, and while not a Brit – Irish star Paul Mescal’s snub also caused anger.

‘And I may destroy you didn’t get ANY nominations…. I May Destroy You and Michaela should’ve been nominated for that monologue in episode 8 alone.’

Prior to the nomination reveals, it was revealed that Jane Fonda will be honoured with the Cecil B. deMille Award at the ceremony, which is the equivalent to a lifetime achievement award that will celebrate her 60-year career.

As the trophy is given for ‘outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment,’ Fonda is a more than worthy recipient due to her career in film, television and and being at the forefront of social issues over six decades. 

HFPA president Ali Sar said in a statement: ‘Her undeniable talent has gained her the highest level of recognition, and while her professional life has taken many turns, her unwavering commitment to evoking change has remained.’
