"I want to take a moment to just say thank you to Eve, who always stood by me for 22 years," he said before adding: "and our four children, Clara, Esther, Jamyan and Anouk."

He then went on to pay tribute to his Fargo co-star Winstead. "I've always loved being an actor and I love hanging out with actors and I got amazing actors to work with on this. There wouldn't be any Emmit Stussy without David Thewlis and Michael Stuhlbarg and Carrie Coon, and there would've been no Ray without Mary Elizabeth Winstead so thank you very much."

The pair went public with their controversial romance in October 2017. The Trainspotting actor is 14 years her senior.

Another said: "WOW. Ewan McGregor just thanked his wife AND his girlfriend in his #GoldenGlobes speech... on a show that's been all about female empowerment @KatePeople.

Mavrakis revealed the extent of her despair on learning about her husband's relationship with Winstead when a fan sent her a message on Instagram which read: "I can't believe Ewan would end things with u for that cheap xxxxx! U are so much better than him!!!! Take him for every penny u can!!!!"

She simply replied, "What Can I Do?"

While Mavrakis may have appreciated a shout-out at the end of 2017, she has made it clear that McGregor is no longer a part of her life and she is making a conscious effort to move on from her failed marriage.

Earlier in January, she shared a family snap sans McGregor. Instead, she posed with the couple's four daughters in blue water with an exotic island providing the perfect backdrop.

"This will be our Christmas/New Year card. Happy 2018!" the accompanying caption read.

"I am so thankful for my loving, caring girls. Happy, peaceful and adventurous New 2018 to all my friends and family."
