The Jenaissance continues! After officially becoming a Golden Globe winner just five days ago, Jennifer Coolidge added another award to her collection. On Sunday, the 61-year-old star was crowned best supporting actress in a drama series for her role as Tanya McQuoid in "The White Lotus."

Like the legend she is, Coolidge used her acceptance speech to offer up some words of encouragement to anyone who's ever "given up hope." She told the crowd, "I hope this gives you the inspiration. It's not over till it's over. It's not over till you're dead."

There's no denying that Coolidge has been on a hot streak these past few years. In 2018, she reprised her "Legally Blonde" character, Paulette, in Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next" music video, which Coolidge told Grande helped launch her back into the spotlight. Since then, Coolidge has starred in countless projects, including "Promising Young Woman," "Single All the Way," and of course, "The White Lotus." Up next, she'll appear alongside Jennifer Lopez and Josh Duhamel in "Shotgun Wedding."
