Jennifer Coolidge frequently stole the show on the second season of The White Lotus, where she reprised her role as the chaotic Tanya McQuoid and came back with an even greater number of quotable one-liners ("these gays, they're trying to murder me!"). So, it should come as no surprise that when the Legally Blonde actress presented the award for Best Supporting Actor – Series, Miniseries or Television Film at the 80th Golden Globes, she had the audience bursting into laughter.
It all started when the 61-year-old star walked on stage and began recounting the apprehension she felt about being a presenter and how she shared her fears with someone tied to the show. “I said, ‘Cara, I'm so touched that you would want me to do something, but, listen, I'm going to tell you something,’” Coolidge said. “To make it from behind the curtain all the way to the podium without breaking my skull—you know, because of all these overwaxed floors—I just can't do it.”
