Crazy Ex-Girlfriend just got a little more Hollywood cred. Rachel Bloom, The CW show's co-creator and star, took home the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Comedy or Musical. This was her first win and first nomination.

The 28-year-old beat out last year's winner and fellow CW star Gina Rodriguez of Jane the Virgin, Lily Tomlin of Grace and Frankie, Jamie Lee Curtis of Scream Queens and awards favorite Julia Louis-Dreyfus of Veep.

Bloom took the stage in tears. "Oh my god, oh my god," she shouted. "Guys, guys, I'm just going to talk to you like people and talk to you like I'm not on TV."

The comedian recounted Crazy Ex-Girlfriend's unlikely road to The CW. It was originally made for Showtime, but the network passed. So they took the show to other networks. "We got six rejections in one day and we felt like crap, but we knew it was good," she said before praising The CW's Mark Pedowitz for taking a chance on their show. On her list of people to thank, Bloom made sure to give a shout out to the woman who got her out of filming the show on Monday.

"I love you so much," she told the crowd before being played off stage.
