Work is work," Colman tells aspiring filmmakers, per The Guardian. "If you get accolades for something, enjoy it for a bit, but put it aside and pretend that hasn't happened a week later. You still need to work and no one else will remember it either after a week. So crack on." Colman no doubt will continue to "crack on" in regards to her career!
