“I just want to thank HFPA for the award, A24, Greta, all the producers on the film, all of the women who I love so much in my own life who support me every single day.
“My mother, who’s on Facetime, and Margo, and all of my friends and my family, and actually everyone in this room.
“So thank you so much for this.”
