And the Golden Globe Award goes to … Rachel Brosnahan!

The actress took home the statue for best actress in a television series, comedy or musical during Sunday night’s award show for her role in the Amy Sherman-Palladino-created Amazon series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

“This is a story about a bold and brilliant and complicated woman, and I am endlessly proud to be a part of it,” Brosnahan said during her acceptance speech.

The actress also allowed herself a more lighthearted moment during the acceptance speech, looking down at the crowd and excitedly declaring “Hi, Oprah!”

This is Brosnahan’s first Golden Globe nomination and win. Her show was also nominated for best television series comedy. She was previously Emmy nominated for her supporting role on Netflix’s House of Cards.
