Paul Giamatti and Da'Vine Joy Randolph take home Golden Globes for The Holdovers
The actors won awards for Best Performance by a Male Actor in a Musical or Comedy and Best Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture, respectively.
At the 81st Golden Globe Awards last night, both Paul Giamatti and Da'Vine Joy Randolph took home honors for The Holdovers, directed by Alexander Payne and written by David Hemingson.
Paul Giamatti won the Golden Globe for Best Performance by a Male Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy for his turn as Mr. Hunham, a curmudgeonly professor at a New England prep school.
Da'Vine Joy Randolph won the award for her moving performance as Mary Lamb, a cook who recently lost her son in the Vietnam war.
The Holdovers follows a curmudgeonly instructor (Paul Giamatti) at a New England prep school who is forced to remain on campus during Christmas break to babysit the handful of students with nowhere to go. Eventually he forms an unlikely bond with one of them—a damaged, brainy troublemaker (newcomer Dominic Sessa)—and with the school’s head cook, who has just lost a son in Vietnam (Da’Vine Joy Randolph).
