Ahead of the award show, Margaret ran into Charlize Theron, who was nominated for her role in Bombshell, and shared the moment on Instagram, writing: "Thank you Charlize for saying hello to a fellow woman from South Africa."
The 60-year-old now calls Los Angeles her home and works as a TV and print journalist in the City of Angels. She is also a member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association that votes on and hosts the Golden Globes.
