John Lithgow thanked Sir Winston Churchill, whom he portrayed in The Crown, during his acceptance for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series at the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
“First and foremost, I want to thank Winston Churchill. In these crazy times, his life reminds us what courage and leadership in government looks like.”
