Beef received some well-deserved recognition at this year’s Golden Globe Awards, with first-time wins for Ali Wong in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series, Anthology Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television category, and Steven Yeun for Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series, Anthology Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television. The show itself also won for Best Television Limited Series, Anthology Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television.
In Wong's heartwarming speech, she graciously thanked Yeun, the amazing cast and crew, and her ex-husband Justin Hakuta. “I really need to thank the father of my children and my best friend, Justin, for all of your love and support,” she said. “It’s because of you that I’m able to be a working mother.”
During his acceptance speech, Yeun expressed his gratitude, saying, “I’m just so thankful. I am just the recipient of a long line of compassionate love and protection and goodwill, so I appreciate this.”
Beef creator Lee Sung Jin also took a moment to thank a real-life road rage driver in his speech. “You know, our show is actually based on a real road rage incident that happened to me, so I’d be remiss not to thank that driver,” Lee said. “Sir, I hope you honk and yell and inspire others for years to come.”
Congratulations to the cast of Beef and to all the Golden Globes winners this year!
