On Sunday, Jennifer Coolidge reminded everyone why she’s such a winner after winning the Critics Choice Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her role on HBO’s. The white lotus as the wildly rich Tanya McQuoid. After taking the stage and accepting his statue, Coolidge reflected on his celebrated achievement after a quiet period in his career.
“I just want to say to all the people out there, to all the people who have given up hope: I hope this gives you inspiration,” Coolidge said. “It’s not over until it’s over. It’s not over until you’re dead.”
This was a big week for Coolidge, who took home her first Golden Globe last Tuesday at age 61, for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television. In September, she received her first Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Anthology Series or Motion Picture. With all these wins, Coolidge has clearly had time to consider the messages she wants to get out there during her acceptance speeches.
At the Golden Globes, Coolidge was similarly hilarious as she talked about her rise and fall and rise again as a comedic actress.
“I just want you all to know that I had such big dreams and expectations as a younger person, but what happened was they got kind of confused by life or whatever,” she said. “You know I thought I was going to be Queen of Monaco, even though someone else did.”
She went on to thank the creator The white lotussaying, “Mike White – You’ve given me a fresh start … You’ve kind of changed my life in a million different ways. My neighbors talk to me. Things like.”
The star has had many other memorable roles, starring in Legally blondethat american pie franchise, and Best In Show.
