We don't mean to be dramatic, but Renée Zellwegeris literally the best actress (in a drama movie).

At the 2020 Golden Globe awards, the star was presented with the trophy for Best Actress in a Drama Movie by Rami Malek. She gracefully approached the mic in her baby blue gown and demurely spoke into the mic. 

In her speech, the actress thanked the many people from the cast and crew who made her showstopping performance possible. "Thank you! My! I really am up here. Hi, everybody, it's nice to see you. Y'all look pretty good, 17 years later. Thank you to the HFPA for inviting me back to the family reunion, especially with all these extraordinary ladies this year. I mean it, your work moves me. It moves me. And I've been cheering for y'all from theater seats for a long time being on a list with you is cool," she started. 

The actress sure had some tough competition going into the show. She went up against Cynthia Erivo who played the titular role in Harriet, Scarlett Johanssonfrom Netflix's Marriage StorySaoirse Ronan for Little Women and Charlize Theronof the hit Bombshell.

She recognized these talented woman in her speech, along with her character and inspiration Judy Garland. "Celebrating one of the great icons of all time with you has been one of my life blessings and the people who want to express their love for Judy Garland and tell about the great personal significance of her legacy and her humanity, has been a great reminder that the choices that we make matters what we make matters and how we choose to honor each other in our lifetimes can matter a great deal down the road," she concluded.
