2024 Oscars: Da'Vine Joy Randolph Wins Best Supporting Actress

This honor makes her a first-time Oscar winner.

Da'Vine Joy Randolph made history at the 96th Annual Academy Awards in Los Angeles, CA when she was crowned Best Supporting Actress for her role in "The Holdovers." This milestone makes the star a first-time Oscar winner.

This category also included nominees Danielle Brooks, Emily BluntAmerica Ferrera, and Jodie Foster.

Still, this is not the first time the star has been recognized this award season. Earlier this year, Joy racked up major wins by securing a BAFTA, a Golden Globe, and a SAG award.

During her acceptance speech, Joy thanked her mother who encouraged her to pursue the arts.

"God is so good," Randolph began her speech.

"I didn't think I was supposed to be doing this as a career," she said. "I started off as a singer. And my mother said to me, 'Go across that street to that theatre department. There's something for you there.' And I thank my mother for doing that."
