Washington D.C. [USA], Jan 6 (ANI): American actor Awkwafina created history at the 77th Golden Globe Awards as she became the first performer of Asian descent to win the award for a lead role.
The 31-year-old actor won the best female actor award in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy - for her film 'The Farewell', defeating big stars Ana de Armas, Cate Blanchett, Emma Thompson and Beanie Feldstein.
