Even though Matt Smith was already a star in the UK, where 'The Crown' is based, lots of people are wondering why Claire Foy's salary wasn't adjusted upwards for season 2, after season 1 had already become an awards-winner and critical hit.

At the same time, there's also been lots of talk of inclusion riders, following the shoutout from Frances McDormand at the Oscars.
