"Oh my goodness. This is the most shocking moment of my life," Froggatt said during her acceptance speech.

This is Froggatt's first nomination and Golden Globe trophy. She plays the role of Anna Bates, the head housemaid on "Downton Abbey." In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in June of 2014, Froggatt discussed her character being right in the middle of the show's darkest plot-line, saying, "I'm quite honored, actually. I thought [creator] Julian Fellowes wrote the emotional journey of the character extremely well, and as an actress it was great to do something challenging in the fourth season of a show."

Froggatt beat out Uzo Aduba (for "Orange is the New Black"), Kathy Bates (for "American Horror Story: Freak Show"), Allison Janney (for "Mom") and Michelle Monaghan (for "True Detective").

Jacqueline Bisset won the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress In A Series, Mini-Series Or TV Movie in 2014 for her performance in "Dancing on the Edge."
