Jennifer Coolidge Wins Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series for ‘The White Lotus’


Veteran Hollywood actress Jennifer Coolidge at the 74th Academy Awards for Television on Tuesday won Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series for her role in ‘The White Lotus.’ According to Variety, upon accepting the award, Coolidge said, “Hey, hi. Wow, thank you. Gosh. What a night. Just want to say to my fellow nominees, just to be in your company, it’s amazing.”

She added that she took “a lavender bath” just before the show, which made her “puff up” inside her dress. “I find it hard to speak,” she deadpanned. “But either way, it’s so exciting.” Coolidge then thanked his team, “The White Lotus” producers, HBO executives and his sister. The win for Coolidge follows his nominations for the same role at the SAG Awards and Golden Globes.

Created, written, directed and produced by Mike White, the show is set in a tropical Hawaiian resort, following the exploits of various guests and employees over the course of a week. In it, Coolidge portrays Tanya McQuoid, a struggling vacationer mourning the loss of her mother. The show’s first season set also included Murray Bartlett, Jake Lacy, Fred Hechinger, Brittany O’Grady, Steve Zahn, Lukas Gage, Jon Gries and more. Although the show was originally billed as a limited series, it was renewed for a second season in August as per the deadline.

Coolidge won this year’s Emmy against contestants including his “White Lotus” co-stars Connie Britton, Alexandra Daddario, Natasha Rothwell and Sydney Sweeney, as well as “Dopesick’s” Kaitlyn Dever and Mare Winningham. (ANI)
