*Please note this post contains spoilers about The White Lotus Season 2.
In news that I imagine would surprise absolutely no one who’s watched The White Lotus – Jennifer Coolidge has won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress!
It’s her first time winning the prestigious award and her acceptance speech was so darn good, it deserves an award of its own!
“I don’t work out,” she said, setting her statuette down on the ground beside her. “You know what I mean? I can’t hold it that long.”
The hilarity turned a little more heartfelt (but also still truly and utterly hilarious) as Jennifer went on to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press and all the directors and creators who have helped “keep her going”, including Reese Witherspoon for helping her gain a following through Legally Blonde and the people behind American Pie: “I milked that to the bone!”
“I had such big dreams and expectations as a younger person but they get sort of fizzled by life. I thought I was gonna be Queen of Monaco, but you get older,” she continued throwing in a few swear words before thanking White Lotus creator Mike White.
“Even if this is the end, because you killed me off, you changed my life in a million different ways! My neighbours are speaking to me and things like that. I mean it! I was never invited to a single party on my hill and now everybody’s inviting me!”
Earlier while presenting an award she had the room in stitches describing how she was too anxious to be there because she was worried about “slipping” on the waxed stage and so it was suggested to her to “wear a pair of Crocs.”
“And I said, ‘What? Are you kidding me? With my Dolce & Gabbana dress, you know, all those crazy Italians would lose their minds!’”
She also spoke of her worry about mispronouncing names (using Bill Nighy and Kaley Cuoco as examples!) and then went on to describe the award she was presenting as an Oscar!
Yep. A true queen of comedy who deserves all the awards!
Other nominated actresses in her category included her fellow White Lotus co-star Audrey Plaza, Claire Danes for Fleishman Is in Trouble, Daisy Edgar-Jones for Under the Banner of Heaven and Niecy Nash for Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.
