The White Lotus took home the 2023 Golden Globe for best limited series, marking Mike White’s first win.
White began his speech, joking that he was originally going to say his acceptance speech in Italian, but he said he got too drunk because there was no food. He also noted he was choked up over Jennifer Coolidge’s speech, as his star had just brought him to tears with her supporting actress win for her role in season two of the HBO series.
“We went out with the show that we wanted to do with Jennifer and, everybody passed. I know you all passed. You all passed on this show,” he said to the Hollywood crowd of stars about roles for The White Lotus. “And so yes, it’s very gratifying to have this moment.”
The show creator also took a moment to thank all of his Italian cast and crew. “You had to be there, but the experience was amazing.”
The HBO series beat out Black Bird, Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, The Dropout and Pam & Tommy at this year’s awards. Black Bird’s Paul Walter Hauser, The White Lotus’ Jennifer Coolidge, The Dropout‘s Amanda Seyfried and Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story’s Evan Peters also won Golden Globes in the limited series categories.
