8 women who stole the show at the Golden Globes 2023

From Michelle Yeoh to Jennifer Coolidge, we highlight eight exceptional women who were celebrated at last night’s Golden Globes 2023

Michelle Yeoh

Malaysian star Michelle Yeoh bagged an award for her starring role in Everything Everywhere All At Once. People in Asia and Asian Americans have shown particular support for her win, with many claiming it will boost her chance of winning an Oscar. 

During her acceptance speech, Michelle said: “I remember when I first came to Hollywood. It was a dream come true until I got here, because, look at this face. I came here and was told, 'You are a minority'.

“This is also for all the shoulders I have (stood) on, all who came before me who look like me, and all who are going on this journey with me forward.”

Jennifer Coolidge

When presenting and accepting an award, Jennifer Coolidge well and truly stole the show at last night’s ceremony. 

In her hilarious acceptance speech for winning Best Supporting Actress, Jennifer said: “You’ve given me a new beginning. Even if this is the end, because you did kill me off, but it doesn’t matter. Even if this is the end, you changed my life in a million different ways.

“My neighbours are speaking to me and things like that. I mean it. I was never invited to one party on my hill, and now everyone’s inviting me. I just – you know, it’s to you, Mike White.
