Where there’s a leading lady, there’s a supporting actress right behind her.
Tonight, television’s biggest stars gathered at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles for the 77th annual Golden Globes. During the ceremony, Patricia Arquette was awarded with Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for her role as Dee Dee Blanchard in The Act.
The actress was up against Helena Bonham Carter for The Crown, Toni Collette for Unbelievable, Meryl Streep for Big Little Lies and Emily Watson for Chernobyl.
This was Streep’s 34th Golden Globe nomination, meaning she surpassed her own record, and one of three nominations for the hit HBO show. Unbelievable earned an impressive four nods including Best TV Miniseries or Movie and Best Actress, TV Miniseries or Movie for Kaitlyn Dever and Merritt Wever. The Crown tied Unbelievable, also landing four nominations this year.
In 2019, it was Patricia Clarkson who took home the Statuette for Best Supporting TV Actress. She beat out some serious competition including Alex Borstein for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Penélope Cruz for The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, Thandie Newton for Westworld and Yvonne Strahovski for The Handmaid’s Tale.
Way to go, Arquette. You seriously deserved this “W.”
