Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role 2012
SEX WORKER ROLE
Opal in Bad Santa 2003 & Bad Santa 2 2016
Character Is A Prostitute
In this minimal role (under five lines), Octavia plays a streetwalker named Opal (who also happens to be a grandmother!) She interacts only with Billy Bob Thornton’s character outside of a motel. A few years after winning the Oscar, she would reprise her role of Opal the hooker in the sequel to Bad Santa. Unfortunately (or maybe it is, fortunately?), the sequel wasn’t as successful as the original movie. So it is doubtful that a Bad Santa 3 is around the corner. But never say never as stranger things have happened.
