The murder mystery went home with the coveted Best Drama Series award, as well as Best Supporting Actress award for Duff.

In the winners' room, Duff revealed that Horgan was "engaged in a strike".

"Yes, Sharon was engaged in a strike," she said. "I was just in LA, so she was on the picket line very much.

"So she has a double life – no, triple life – as she has her Irish writing career, her English writing career, and her American writing career, so whatever room she's in, she's in at that time.
