It is a testament not just to our brilliant actors but also the extraordinary artists working in all our design departments. Our technical crews really are the best in the world. I am obviously delighted for Peter Morgan and everybody at Left Bank Pictures.”

Ben Turner said, “We are absolutely delighted with our Emmy nomination for our work on The Crown. It’s fantastic to be recognised for the incredible work our team at One of Us put into the show.

We are completely thrilled to be recognised by The Academy.”

Martin Childs said, “It was a great pleasure to work on The Crown, to be inspired by Peter Morgan’s words and Stephen Daldry’s vision, indeed by all the directors. This nomination is a wonderful honour not just for the nominees but for the whole Art Department, for their passion and commitment to such an exciting project.”
