Helen Mirren praised a lot of people—and things—during her speech tonight.

The 68-year-old actress won Best Female Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries for her work in Phil Spector, and before bringing on the funny (did you know Mirren's got jokes?), the star wanted to acknowledge one of her fellow nominees—Elisabeth Moss.

"Elisabeth was so extraordinary," Mirren said of the actress before applauding her performance in Top of the Lake. And then it was on to noting her trophy's flattering figure.

"I love this little guy. He's so sexy, isn't he? You know, sorta naked but not quite. Quite exciting," Mirren joked, and topped it off with, "I don't feel at all saggy. I feel quite perky actually."

The crowd was definitely a fan of this, as laughs were heard throughout the room. But the actress did get serious when it came to giving props to her Phil Spector costar Al Pacino.

"I'm thrilled, thank you so much. I had the incredible advantage of acting with a person that you all know, you all love, you all respect beyond—I believe—any other actor and that's Al Pacino. To work with Al and watch him close-hand was just an incredible lesson for me. We can always learn all the time."
