The recent Golden Globe Awards 2023 were a memorable night for a lot of people as they were awarded for the work they had done in the entertainment industry. Actress Milly Alcock, too, experienced first-hand what it was like getting recognized at such a prestigious award ceremony.
It definitely didn’t come as a surprise when House of the Dragon won the award for Best Drama Series. After all, being the prequel to Game of Thrones, the show lived up to all the expectations of the fans. However, what was surprising, though, was seeing Milly Alcock all giggly and seemingly drunk while she stood on the stage to accept the award. Of course, the clip went viral and the trolling began!
Milly Alcock Trolled by the Fans
If you are a celebrity, you will at least at one point in your career end up being trolled on the Internet. That’s the rule. That’s exactly what happened with actress Milly Alcock as she was the center of attention when House of the Dragon won the Golden Globe for Best Television Series – Drama.
As she, her co-star Emma D’Arcy, and director Miguel Sapochnik headed on up to the stage to accept the award on behalf of the entire team, Alcock seemed to be a little “distracted” during the thank you speech. Fans are suspecting that the actress had a little too much to drink at the event as she giggles and points to someone in the audience. She even put her finger in her mouth at one point.
While fans troll her for supposedly being a little tipsy, a few also stand in her favor stating that it was her first big event and she just appeared excited. Others also had her back and stated that even if she was drunk, she had all the right to be!
That’s so Rhaenyra of her 🥺 leave her alone!

The white lotus guy told us there was no food, and that’s just not her fault.

The moment is going viral on the Internet as social media seems to have found their new favorite video. But hey, even if Alcock is getting trolled for being drunk on stage, a majority of the trolling is coming from a light-hearted audience who found it super adorable!
What is Milly Alcock’s Role in House of the Dragon?
Alcock plays the character of Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen in House of the Dragon who is the daughter of King Viseryrs I Targaryen and Queen Aemma Arryn. While Rhaenyra is deemed to be the heir to the Iron Throne, she has to face a lot of drama while the heir is decided thanks to her two X chromosomes. People would rather have a man sitting on the throne than Rhaenyra who is next in line by blood. Game of Thrones’ Daenerys Targaryen is a distant descendant of Rhaenyra.
While Alcock plays the younger version of the princess, D’Arcy takes on the role of an older Rhaenyra. While talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Alcock stated that she had never done such a monumental show in her career before HOTD.
“I’d done Aussie television where our whole show’s budget is less than one episode [of HOTD]. I’d never been on a hundred-million-dollar set like that before. So there was a lot of responsibility of having to carry on.”
House of the Dragon was a big deal for Alcock. The show winning such a prestigious award certainly meant a lot to her. We don’t blame her if she downed a drink or two!
House of the Dragon is available to stream on HBO Max.
