Danish film director Susanne Bier may not have left Sunday night's Golden Globe awards with a statue in hand, but her miniseries The Night Manager was still one of the evening's big winners.
Bier, who won an Oscar for Best Foreign Language film for 2010's ‘In a Better World', saw three of her miniseries actors rewarded for their performances in The Night Manager. 
English actor Tom Hiddleston was given the Golden Globe for the best actor in a mini-series or motion picture made for TV for his role as Jonathan Pine in Bier's adaptation of a John le Carré's novel.
The Night Manager also claimed the best supporting actor and actress in the same category, won by Hugh Laurie and Olivia Colman. 


“When three actors get an award and you're the director, it's very hard not be proud,” Bier told TV2 in a red carpet interview. “We're going to celebrate how wonderful they have been.”
Ib Bondebjerg, a film researcher at the University of Copenhagen's Department of Media, Cognition and Communication, said the trio of Golden Globes for Bier's actors is a reflection of her strength as a director. 
“She can tell universally relevant stories in a very clear way that strike a chord with both Danish and international audiences,” Bondebjerg told news agency Ritzau. “So she is able to get some fantastic international actors to deliver their best, as we have seen with ‘The Night Manager'.”
