“Fleabag” has been cleaning up during awards season. After winning big during the Emmys and Golden Globes, the Critics Choice Association (CCA) also feted the Amazon Studios series during its 25th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards last night. And while creator and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge has been taking home a slew of awards, Andrew Scott, the series’ buzz-worthy ‘Hot Priest,’ was recognized as well during the ceremony at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica. The Best Supporting Actor in a comedy series winner even scored a seat next to Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway at the ceremony. All in all, the series took home three awards, the most for the television category: One for Scott, one for Waller-Bridge and one for Best Comedy Series.
