Last night, Ewan McGregor won Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture for Television (wow that's a mouthful!) at the Golden Globes, and as par the course he had a speech ready for when he accepted his gong. 




And while he definitely deserved the award, it was who he thanked in his speech that left everyone with raised eyebrows: his estranged wife, Eve Mavrakis, and his rumoured girlfriend, co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead. 



“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," the actor said. 


“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."

Continuing, he said: 


“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."


And Twitter could not help but have their say on it! 





Ewan and his wife of 22 years reportedly split at the end of last year following an alleged affair he was having with his co-star. The actor then shocked family and friends by embarking on a romance with Mary Elizabeth.


The former couple have four children together: Clara, Esther, Jamyan and Anouk,
