After more than 30 years in Hollywood, Will Smith is finally a Golden Globe winner. On Sunday (Jan. 10), the 53-year-old star snagged the trophy for Best Performance By an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama, beating out fellow nominees Javier Bardem from Being the Ricardos; The Power of the Dog‘s Benedict Cumberbatch; Denzel Washington, who was nominated for The Tragedy of Macbeth; and Mahershala Ali, who earned a nod for his work in Swan Song. The recognition is for his portrayal of Richard Williams in King Richard, the film based on Serena and Venus Williams’ upbringing and rise to fame.
Smith earned his first Golden Globe nomination in 1993 for his role in the 90s sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” Four nods later, he’s earned his first-ever award at the annual show. He now joins Forest Whitaker, Washington, the late Sidney Poitier and Chadwick Boseman, the only four Black men to take home the win in the show’s 79-year history.
The 2022 Golden Globes took place on Sunday evening in a COVID-friendly closed ceremony void of a red carpet. Among the winners announced on the internet was MJ Rodriguez of “Pose,” who made history as the first trans actress to be crowned Best Actress in a Television Series – Drama. Following the victory, she took to social media to celebrate the accomplishment.
