While accepting the award, Edebiri shared, 

“This is insane. Okay, I’m so grateful. I’m really, really, really just grateful, and I’m looking out at this room of people whose work moves me and motivates me and makes me feel and laugh, and I’m just so grateful to be here.”

“I wake up every day overwhelmed with gratitude to be a working actor. To be awarded this by my fellow artists is the greatest honour of my career.” 

Now a Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice Award, and BAFTA winner, Randolph continues to find awards season success for her work as Mary Lamb in The Holdovers.

In the film, she plays a cook and grieving mother working at the Barton Academy who stays at the New England boarding school during the holiday season. Opposite rising star Sessa and fellow nominee Giamatti, Randolph delivers one of the year’s most decorated performances.
