Ewan McGregor may have thanked both his current girlfriend, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and his estranged wife, Eve Mavrakis, during his Golden Globes acceptance speech on Sunday, but he was all about Winstead at Thursday’s Critics’ Choice Awards.
The Fargo co-stars, who have been linked since the fall, didn’t walk the red carpet together, but they sat side by side during the awards show, which was held at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif. When his name was called as winner in the Best Actor in a Movie Made for TV or Limited Series category, he planted a kiss on his girlfriend’s cheek.
Then, during McGregor’s acceptance speech, he gave Winstead, who played his love interest in the series, a shout-out. Here’s what he said, saving his lady love for last:
“Thank you to Warren, to FX, MGM brah — that’s what we used to call you on set, MGM brah — and Noah, for putting together this amazing team to make this, to give us these great scripts and amazing storylines and great characters, and really for the great directors that you gave us to work with. And the crew in Calgary, because it’s an amazingly cold place, Calgary, and the crews there are amazing. Like, it’s minus 40 degrees and they’re there, and they kept us warm, and they kept it — the whole machine moving. And they’re amazing, really, the people in Calgary. So, I want to thank you for all that, especially Gail Kennedy, who did all my prosthetic makeup to make me Ray, and she did an amazing job, and Chris Glimsdale, who did my hair or lack of hair for both those characters. So, thank you especially to them. And really to our actors — to Carrie [Coon] and Olivia [Sandoval] and David [Thewlis] and Mary. Thank you so much, because this is for all of us really, because it’s such a team effort and ensemble piece, so this is for all of us. Thank you very much.”
McGregor made headlines on Sunday when he thanked both Winstead and his estranged wife during his Globes speech. Awkward! (After saying, “I want to take a moment to say thank you to Eve, who always stood by me for 22 years,” he mentioned Winstead. “There would be no Ray without Mary Elizabeth Winstead. So thank you very much.”) It was first revealed that the Scottish actor and his co-star were in a relationship in October when they were photographed kissing in a restaurant. At that point, McGregor said that his 22-year marriage to Mavrakis had ended in May. Coincidentally, Winstead’s own marriage to film director and television writer Riley Stearns also ended in May.
