And the Golden Globe goes to Joanne Froggatt! The Downton Abbey star took home the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Miniseries or TV Movie.

"This is the most shocking moment of my life," Froggatt said when she got on stage.

The Downton Abbey actress beat out "amazing women" Kathy Bates, Uzo Aduba, Michelle Monaghan and Allison Janney to take home the trophy.

 "I just had a moment meeting the wonderful Kathy Bates," she said after taking the stage and thanking the American Horror Story: Freak Show star.

In season four of Downton Abbey, Froggatt's character, Anna Bates, was raped by a visiting valet. After the storyline aired, Froggatt said she received letters from women, including a woman who said she wasn't sure why she had written, "but she wanted to be heard."

"I heard you," Froggatt said, and added now that she's saying it so publicly, the world has heard her.

"This is a dream come true," she said.

Downton Abbey airs Sundays, 9 p.m. on PBS.
