In 1998, Ving Rhames won a Golden Globes for his depiction of Don King in the film Don King: Only in America , beating out the late, great Jack Lemmon, who was nominated for his role in the TV movie, 12 Angry Men. It’s the only major award that Ving Rhames has won, either before or after. Yet, a tearful Ving Rhames, after suggesting “that being an artist is about giving,” gave up his Golden Globe to Lemmon in what Lemmon called one of the nicest, sweetest moments of his life.

Lemmon would win another Golden Globe outright two years later, before passing away in 2001.
