Anyone who's seen her in Peep Show or Green Wing will know that Olivia Colman does comedy just as well as she does drama.
And presenting the award for Best Actor at the 92nd Academy Awards on Sunday, she made sure to remind everyone.
"Winning an Oscar ages you," Colman began, running her fingers over her newly-blonde hair, before cracking through a joke-filled speech. The English actor took home Best Actress last year for her portrayal of Queen Anne in The Favourite.
"Hello there," she continued. "Thank you for having me back. It's such a pleasure to be here. Last year was the best night of my husband's life. He actually says that. And I've given birth three times.
"So I hope you're all having as good a time as he did, and as I did."

Frankly, Colman should present every award at every award ceremony. And if you're wondering, the award for Best Actor went to Joaquin Phoenix for Joker — and his acceptance speech took a more serious turn.
