Congratulations, Alicia Vikander!

The Swedish actress beat out fellow nominees Rachel McAdams, Kate Winslet, Rooney Mara and Helen Mirren to win a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for her work in The Danish Girl.

The first-time winner could barely contain her emotions as she expressed her gratitude in her acceptance speech. "Honestly, this is the highest honor," she gushed. "Just to be invited to join this stage. Thank you."

The 27-year-old beauty also recalled being a little girl and drawing inspiration from her mother's work as an actress.

"I loved to watch her rehearse and I love to watch her perform," she said. "I saw a sudden thrill. I saw an excitement of a collaboration and exchange and camaraderie between actors by fellow actors."

Vikander then recognized her costar, Eddie Redmayne. "Eddie, you're here tonight. I want to thank you and everyone in this amazing cast that I was on this journey with."
