The Friedkin Group’s affiliated companies had a strong showing at the 75th Golden Globe Awards on Sunday Night in Los Angeles.
Allison Janney took home the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for her role as LaVona Golden in 30WEST’s Tonya Harding biopic “I, Tonya.” Janney beat out actresses Hong Chau (“Downsizing”), Laurie Metcalf (“Ladybird”), Octavia Spencer (“The Shape of Water”) and Mary J. Blige (Mudbound).
“What this movie did is tell a story about class in America, tell a story about the disenfranchised, tell a story about a woman who was not embraced for her individuality, tell a story about truth and the perception of truth in the media, and truths we all tell ourselves when we wake up in bed every morning and go out and live our lives,” Janney said during her acceptance speech. “It’s an extraordinary movie, I’m so proud of it.”
“I, Tonya” received two additional Golden Globe nominations, including Best Picture – Musical or Comedy and Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy for Margot Robbie.
Imperative Entertainment’s “All the Money in the World” also received three Golden Globe nominations: Christopher Plummer for Best Supporting Actor, Michelle Williams for Best Actress – Drama and Ridley Scott for Best Director.

Paul Getty (Christopher Plummer) refused to pay the ransom for his namesake, leaving the boy’s fate in the hands of his mother Gail Harris (Michelle Williams) and Getty’s advisor, an ex-CIA agent named Fletcher Chase (Mark Wahlberg).
