Paul Giamatti is a very classy actor with a lifetime of acting roles adding up to an impressive body of work. Staying true to his own personal character he was generous and thoughtful while giving his acceptance speech during the 81st Golden Globe Awards.

On Sunday night January 7, 2024, toward the end of the awards ceremony, Paul Giamatti won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy for his part as the veteran teacher Paul Hunham in the movie The Holdovers.

Paul Giamatti made sure to thank different individuals and groups during his speech which lasted 1 minute and 47 seconds:

Thanks in order: Director: Alexander Payne, co-stars: Da’Vine Joy Randolph, and Dominic Sessa, Distribution: Focus Features, the Cast and Crew in Boston, his girlfriend, and his son (recently graduated from college).

The last group to receive the attention and gratitude from Paul Giamatti were teachers.

“I play a teacher, my whole family, they’re teachers, all of them going back generations. Teachers are good people, gotta respect
