"God is so good," the 37-year-old began her acceptance speech with tears in her eyes. "I didn't think I was supposed to be doing this as a career. I started off as a singer and my mother said to me, 'Go across that street to that theater department, there's something for you there.'"

The High Fidelity star also took a moment to honor those who've stood by her side as she navigated her career.

"I thank you to all the people who have stepped in my path and have been there for me," she continued, "who have ushered me and guided me. I am so grateful to all you beautiful people out here."

If anything, The Idol actress thought she had to be different to make it in Hollywood.

"I realize, I just need to be myself," she expressed. "And I thank you. I thank you for seeing me. Ron Van Lieu, I thank you. When I was the only Black girl in that class, when you saw me and told me I was enough. When I told you, 'I don't see myself,' and you said, 'That's fine, we're going to forge our own path. You're going to lay a trail for yourself.'"คำพูดจาก เว็บสล็อต777
