“Wow, first, I’m shocked, to be honest,” Julia Garner said while beginning her speech.
“I want to show gratitude to all the women in this category. You are the reason why I’m acting in the first place, so thank you.”
Garner also thanked her fellow co-stars Jason Bateman and Laura Linney adding “bringing me under your wings and not only teaching me how to be a better actor but a person.”
Julia Garner concluded her speech by encouraging viewers with an inspiring message.
“Let’s try to make this world better. There will be light at the end of the tunnel.”
