Snook won the Golden Globe for her portrayal of Siobhan “Shiv” Roy in the fourth and final series of HBO’s Succession, set to air in 2023, following Snook’s win in 2022.

She began her acceptance speech by giving a shout-out to her co-star, Kieran Culkin (who won best actor in a drama earlier in the night).

Kieran tends to be better at these kinds of speeches, she said. “Do you want to stand?” she asked.

Despite the joke, Snook continued with sincerity: “This show changed my life. Everybody in it is amazing. The cast and crew were fantastic, this was a team effort. It was always a team and that was what made the show amazing to be a part of.”

Later, she said she was thankful for her husband Dave Lawson “who held my hand” and for their daughter who “also changed my life” in 2023. She went on to list names of friends, family, and colleagues who have supported her throughout the process, saying “it’s all a team effort,” adding “thank you.”

Succession was nominated for nine Golden Globes this year, tying it with Barbie for second most nominations at this year’s ceremony. The show was nominated for best drama series alongside Snook, as well as best actor in a drama series nominee for Jeremy Strong, best actor in a comedy series nominee for Brian Cox, best supporting actor in a musical or musical comedy series for Matthew Mcfrayden, best supporting actress in a comedy or musical comedy series nominee for Jenny from the Apartment, best supporting actor for a comedy or musical series nominee for best supporting actress for a drama or musical comedy series, and best supporting actor for an animation or feature film nominee for a comedy or feature film for a supporting actor or supporting actress for a musical or feature film.

The final episode of the season marked the highest-rated first-night episode of Succession to date, with 2.93 million viewers. In a review of the season finale for The Hollywood Reporter, Daniel fienberg called it “tense, funny, and deeply disturbing,” and praised it as “a fitting conclusion to a remarkable television series.”

A short time after the show closed, Snook confirmed that she had been cast in all 26 roles in Oscar Wilde’s The Picture Of Dorian Gray, which is set to open in London’s West End later this year.

Snook was nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Leading Role in a Motion Picture (1923) alongside Helen Mirren, Bella Ramsey in The Last Of Us, Keri Russell in The Diplomat, Idamela Staunton in The Crown and Emma Stone in The Cuckoo’s Calling. See the full winners list here.
