Sam Rockwell wins best supporting actor at Golden Globes

Posted on

Put this on a billboard: Sam Rockwell is finally a Golden Globe winner.

At Sunday’s 75th annual Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles, the Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri star took home the trophy for best performance by an actor in a supporting role in any motion picture.

“It’s nice to be in a movie that people see, you know?” Rockwell joked in his acceptance speech. Speaking to writer-director Martin McDonagh and costar Frances McDormand, he said, “We did a good thing here.”

“Thanks to everyone who worked on this film,” he continued, giving a shout-out to his “very generous” costar Woody Harrelson, thanking McDonagh for “not being a d—,” and sharing high praise for McDormand: “You’re a badass, you’re a force of nature. It was really fun to be your sparring partner, and thanks for making me a better actor.”

“This movie is about compassion,” Rockwell added, “and I think we need some of that these days.”

Reuniting with his Seven Psychopaths director McDonagh, Rockwell starred in Three Billboards as Officer Jason Dixon, a violent and racist cop who finds some redemption in his bloody efforts to help find the killer of Mildred Hayes’ (McDormand) daughter.

Remarkably, this was both the first Golden Globe nomination and win for Rockwell, who’s often viewed as one of Hollywood’s most underrated actors. That title might not last much longer, as he’s already lined up the high-profile role of George W. Bush in Adam McKay’s upcoming Dick Cheney biopic and he’ll celebrate his Globes victory by hosting next week’s Saturday Night Live.

To win the award, Rockwell beat out Willem Dafoe (The Florida Project), Armie Hammer (Call Me by Your Name), Richard Jenkins (The Shape of Water), and Christopher Plummer (All the Money in the World).
