Emmys: Jennifer Coolidge Wins Best Supporting Actress in Drama Series for The White Lotus

Jennifer Coolidge’s career-revitalizing White Lotus journey is ending on a very high note.

The veteran performer on Monday won her second Emmy Award — her first in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category — for playing now-deceased socialite Tanya McQuoid in HBO’s resort-set phenom. Coolidge prevailed over a field that included four

of her White Lotus co-stars (Meghann Fahy, Sabrina Impacciatore, Aubrey Plaza and Simona Tabasco), as well as Elizabeth Debicki (The Crown), Rhea Seehorn (Better Call Saul) and J. Smith-Cameron (Succession).

Coolidge’s previous White Lotus Emmy triumph came in 2022 for her work in the series’ breakout first season, although that win was in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series category. In that acceptance speech, Coolidge famously forgot to give a shout-out to the architect of her comeback: White Lotus creator Mike White.

This time around, Coolidge did not repeat that mistake.

In the wake of White Lotus‘ Season 2 finale, which concluded with her Tanya character getting killed off, TVLine praised Coolidge for giving her alter ego a “surprisingly resilient yet hopelessly inept swan song.”
