Julia Garner and Tyler James Williams win awards for supporting roles in a television series

Julia Garner called her role in “Ozark” “the greatest gift of (her) life” as she won her first Golden Globe on Tuesday (10.01.23).
With her portrayal of Ruth Langmore in the final season of the Netflix drama, the 28-year-old actress beat out Elizabeth Debicki (“The Crown”), Hannah Einbinder (“Hacks”), and Janelle James and Sheryl Lee Ralph from “Abbott Elementary” to win the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Television Series. She said she was “so grateful” to have even been shortlisted.
She said: “I am so grateful to be here with all of you. Playing Ruth for the past few years has simply been the greatest gift of my life.”
Julia also thanked her co-stars Jason Bateman and Laura Linney and “our wonderful cast and crew who have become our family and show us unconditional love wherever we go.”
She added: “I would like to thank my team who have supported me for years.
“My husband Mark, I love you. And yes, I love you all and I admire you all and I share this with you all.”
While the actresses from “Abbott Elementary” were unable to win this award, their co-star Tyler James Williams took home the award for Best Supporting Actor in a Television Series for his portrayal of elementary school teacher Gregory Eddie.
He said, “Wow, wow. I realize the significance of this moment.”
“First of all, I want to thank my cast and crew. I love you all. It’s an honor to work with you every day.”
“To Quinta Brunson, Randall Einhorn, Patrick Schumacher, all our producers…
“I really appreciate this and pray that this is a victory for Gregory Eddie. And for his story and for stories like his. That we understand that his story is just as important as all the other stories that need to be told here.”
John Lithgow (“The Old Man”), Jonathan Pryce (“The Crown”), John Turturro (“Severance”) and Henry Winkler (“Barry”) were also represented in this category.
