Staff and students at an Oxfordshire school of drama have been celebrating actress Claire Foy's win in the Golden Globes.

Miss Foy was a student at the Oxford School of Drama in Woodstock from 2006 to 2007.

She was named best actress in a television drama for her portrayal of the Queen in The Crown, the big-budget Netflix series about the monarch's early reign.

The 32-year-old also starred in acclaimed BBC history drama Wolf Hall.

Miss Foy described her award win as an "out of body experience" as she paid tribute to the Queen.

She said on stage at the awards ceremony: "I really wouldn't be here if it wasn't for some extraordinary women, one is Queen Elizabeth II.

"She has been at the centre of the world the past 63 years and I think the world could do with a few more women at the centre of it if you ask me."

The Crown, which stars John Lithgow as Sir Winston Churchill and Matt Smith as the Duke of Edinburgh, was also named best television drama series.

Former pupils of the Dragon School in North Oxford Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie also won awards.

Tom Hiddleston was named best actor in a limited television series for his performance in BBC thriller The Night Manager, while Hugh Laurie and Olivia Colman collected awards for their supporting roles on the show.

On stage, Laurie appeared to take aim at President-elect Donald Trump as he joked that he was collecting his award from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association at the "last ever Golden Globes".

"I don't mean to be gloomy," he said.

"It's just it has 'Hollywood', 'foreign' and 'press' in the title. To some Republicans even the word 'association' is slightly sketchy."
