"I find writing really really hard and really painful," Waller-Bridge started her acceptance speech, which called for guffaws from the audience.
"I'd like to say just honestly, from the bottom of my heart, that the reason that I do it is this," she said. "So it's all really made it worth it, guys. Thank you so much."
The actress went on to thank the team behind the show for its success. "I want to say a huge thank you to 'Fleabag' family who have been behind every single word of this."
Fans all over the world cannot contain the big win. "Give everything to 'Fleabag'," said one fan. "I’m so happy that #PhoebeWallerBridge and Fleabag are getting the recognition they deserve. That show is everything," said another.
