Ewan McGregor Kisses Mary Elizabeth Winstead At Critic's Choice Awards, Thanks Her But Not His Wife

Ewan McGregor’s Golden Globes sparked controversy when he thanked both his estranged wife and his girlfriend in the same speech.

But while his Critics’ Choice Awards speech wasn’t as eyebrow-raising, what he did beforehand has tongues wagging.

Ewan kissed girlfriend and Fargo co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead as he accepted the award for Best Actor in a Movie Made For TV or Limited Series.

After winning the award for his role as both Emmit and Ray Stussy in the third series of Fargo, the 46-year-old leaned down and kissed Mary, 33, on the cheek before going on stage.

In his speech, Ewan focused on the cast and crew of Fargo in his thanks, but finished off by singling out Mary.

He said: ‘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.


‘[Thanks to] 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.

‘Thank you to all of our actors… and Mary.’

Ewan and Mary – who are estranged from their spouses Eve Mavrakis and Riley Steams – sat next to each other at their table at the California awards ceremony.

Mary, who played Ray’s fiancee Nikki on Fargo, wore a tulle explosion of a dress which featured yellow, peach and grey frills, while Ewan wore a classic tuxedo paired with black and white creepers.

At Sunday night’s Golden Globes, many people found Ewan’s Best Actor acceptance speech rather bizarre due to the fact he thanked both his ex Eve and Mary in the same breath.


The Trainspotting star is believed to have split from wife of 22 years Eve – with whom he has four daughters – last year.

Ewan said at the Globes: ‘I want to take a moment to just say thank you to Eve, who always stood by me for 22 years, and our four children Clara, Esther, Jamyan and Anouk.

‘And there wouldn’t have been any Ray without Mary Elizabeth Winstead.’
