This is said to be one of the one of the most expensive series ever made with a reported budget of £100m.

The British actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson also received an accolade by winning the award for Best Supporting Actor in a Film category for his performance in Tom Ford's “Nocturnal Animals”.

In the other TV categories, “The People v OJ Simpson: American Crime Story” won Best Mini-Series or TV Movie and Best Mini-Series or TV Movie Actress for the hugely talented Sarah Paulson.

The hip-hop comedy “Atlanta” was named Best Comedy or Musical Series, while its creator Donald Glover won Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical series.

The musical “La La Land” swept the board in the film categories with a record-breaking night, winning a total of seven awards, including Best Actor for Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone and Best Director for Damien Chazelle. In the Best Picture Drama category, “Moonlight” took home the award.
