After winning the well-deserved Best Comedy Series Award, Phoebe returned to the stage to receive the Best Actress and Best Series award, both within her own Comedy category. Fleabag also won for Best Comedy Series Direction for the first episode directed by Tim Kirkby and scripted by Phoebe Waller-Bridge herself.

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch ‘s unexpected award for Best TV Movie was also featured.
