Scottish actor Ewan McGregor thanked his wife and the actress rumoured to be his new girlfriend as he collected his Golden Globe for best actor in a limited series in Fargo.

He won the award for the role he plays as twins Emmit and Ray Stussy in Fargo.

Wearing a Time's Up badge and a black dress shirt under his tux, McGregor paid tribute to his wife Eve Mavrakis, with who he reportedly split from last year, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, his Fargo co-star who is reported to be his new girlfriend.

The actor and his Winstead were pictured kissing in a London cafe by The Sun newspaper last October.

He said: "I want to take a moment to just say thank you to Eve, who always stood by me for 22 years, and my four children Clara, Esther, Jamyan and Anouk.

"And I've always loved being an actor and I love hanging out with actors and I got amazing actors to work with on this.

"There wouldn't have been Emmit Stussy without David Thewlis and Michael Stuhlbarg and Carrie Coon and there wouldn't have been a Ray without Mary Elizabeth Winstead."
