Awkwafina Makes History Winning Golden Globe For Best Comedy Film
The 1st Ever Asian-American actress to win the award in this catergory, what a great start to 2020! 'The Farewell', 'Crazy Rich Asians' & 'Jumanji' star manages to squeeze in some comedy during her acceptance speech which was incredibly moving at the same time. Hearing her voice slightly shaking made everyone in the room feel her humbling gratitude as she thanked her family & friends who helped her get to this point.
The actress took home the award for her role in Lulu Wang’s The Farewell, which follows the story of a Chinese-American woman returning to China to say goodbye to her terminally ill grandmother—a narrative based on Wang’s own experience.
“I actually heard that fact and it was pretty mind-blowing." Awkwafina said backstage. "It feels incredible… but you want there to be more. I hope this is only the beginning."
