Golden Globe winner Drew Barrymore believes that being awarded the Globe at last year’s ceremony for her role in the HBO television film Grey Gardens was one of the high points of her life. “I have never experienced anything like that, ” she told Hollywood Foreign Press members when she met them recently at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills. “I’m still speechless, which is ironic as you’re supposed to give a speech, but that was a moment I just can’t believe happened, not because I wanted to win an award but because we’ve known each other for a long time and seen each other in many different capacities. So that was a beautiful coalescing. It felt so triumphant and I was very humbled and grateful.”
Drew won the Golden Globe for best actress in a TV movie or mini-series for her role as Edie Bouvier Beale, Jacqueline Onassis’ cousin, in the true story of Edie and her aunt, portrayed by Jessica Lange, who lived in squalor and faced eviction until Jacqueline Onassis and her sister Lee Radziwell provided the funds they needed to renovate the house and remain living there.
