The Handmaid's Tale - Winner's Acceptance Speech, International, Virgin TV British Academy Television Awards in 2018

13 May 2018

Winner's acceptance speech on behalf of the production team for The Handmaid's Tale in the International category

O-T FAGBENLE: Cheers. Hello. What an honour. I know Bruce, Kari and Warren would have loved to have been here, especially sat next to such amazing international shows.

So, I'll just say a quick one. You know, it's a female-led drama and we are really spearheaded by some extraordinary female talent.  Of course, Elizabeth Moss, but also Anne Crabtree, who designed the costumes; Reed Morano, our director; and the incomparable Margaret Atwood.  We owe everything to her.

And, of course, my mum.  She didn't do anything on the show, but I have just got to shout out to my mum. I love you, mum.  Thank you very much.
