Frances McDormand Wins Best Actress in a Drama at the 2018 Golden Globes
Frances McDormand’s mere presence at an awards show, always flaunting an unimpressed reaction or grumpy demeanor, is a treat in and of itself. But this year, McDormand had the honor of actually winning of of those awards. On Sunday night the Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri star was named Best Actress in a Drama at the 2018 Golden Globes.
As hard to believe as it may be, this is McDormand’s very first Globe – she technically was lumped in with the Special Award for Short Cuts in 1994, but after sic individual nominations, tonight marks her very first Golden statuette. McDormand bested Meryl Streep for The Post, Sally Hawkins for The Shape of Water, Jessica Chastain for Molly’s Game, and Michelle Williams for All the Money in the World.
In the Martin McDonaugh film McDormand plays the grieving mother Mildred Hayes who’s sick and tired of the local police failing to find her daughter’s murderer and rapist. Taking justice into her own hands, she buys three billboards to crudely call out the local sheriff (Woody Harrelson) and goad him into action. Three Billboards is also nominated for Best Drama Motion Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor for Sam Rockwell, Best Score, and Best Screenplay.
