During her career, she has portrayed three British queens in different films and television series: Elizabeth I in the television series Elizabeth I, for which she received Emmy and Golden Globe Awards for Best Actress, Elizabeth II in The Queen, which won her the Academy and BAFTA Award for Best Actress, and Queen Charlotte in The Madness of King George, for which she earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress.
