Mike White rails against audience in White Lotus acceptance speech

The White Lotus Director Mike White called out to the star-studded audience at Tuesday night’s Golden Globe Awards for turning down the opportunity to work on his show.

The acclaimed series won the Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television trophy at the ceremony, beating a list of competitors pam and tommy, The Dropout and Monsters: The Story of Jeffrey Dahmer.

And as he took the stage at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, White — who created, wrote and directed the series — pointed out that there were many in the audience of celebrities and influential executives who overlooked the HBO hit.

In an obvious reference to The White LotusIn the second season, set in Italy, White initially said he was “drunk,” telling the audience, “I was going to give this speech in Italian, but I’m too drunk because there was no food. When we got there they said, “The dinner is over. You can’t have anything.” It was just a drink.”

He then aimed at the audience and playfully pointed at the laughing contestants while shouting, “I know you all passed! You all passed this show! So yes, it’s very gratifying to have this moment.”

The night also proved victorious for The White Lotus Star Jennifer Coolidge, who won the trophy for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or TV Movie.

During her speech, she praised White, saying: “I just want you all to know that as a younger person I had such big dreams and expectations, but what’s happened is they’ve fizzled out from life and whatever. I thought I was going to be Queen of Monaco when someone else did. But I had these gigantic ideas. And then you’ll get older and, oh, shit will happen.”

“And, Mike White, you gave me hope,” she continued. “You gave me a fresh start. Even if this is the end because you killed me, but even if this is the end, you changed my life in a million different ways. My neighbors talk to me and stuff like that. I was never invited to a party on my hilltop and now everyone invites me!

“That’s something of all of you, if you don’t know Mike White, you should know this: he’s worried about the world, he’s worried about people, he’s worried about his friends who aren’t doing well, he it’s you always worry about people, you worry about animals, and he really is one of the greatest people I’ve ever met… He gives me so much excitement – you make people want to live longer, and I did not do it .

“Anyway, I just want to say Mike White, I love you to death. I just want to say this is a really fun night thank you. Thanks!”
