"First of all, I have to thank Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy for creating and writing this extraordinary show and trusting me and giving me the privilege of playing Dolores," Wood said while accepting the award. "She gave me a strength I didn't know that I had. I'm forever grateful to you and to our incredible writers and producers and our crew.
"And to my son, who I love," she continued, "I do all of this for you."
"And to my parents, and to all of our incredible directors and to my amazing scene partners, because I believe you're only as good as the people you're acting with. So I gotta say thank you to Jeffrey Wright, Ed Harris -- I never thought I'd say this -- Anthony Hopkins, and my rock Jimmi Simpson and James Marsden, and all the incredible actresses I'm surrounded by in this category."
"I truly am in a dream. I just thank all of you, all of you, and the critics for falling in love with this show as much as we did," she concluded. "Thank you!"
Wood, who has yet to release the name of the son she shares with ex Jamie Bell, opened up to ET earlier this year about how she's changed since becoming a mother, and called her son "the best thing to happen to me."
"It's less about me," she shared. "You become less self-obsessed and you let go of things. You forgive your parents for stuff, and you’re more at peace and you're more motivated."
"You know you have to be an example for this child, so you have to be the best person. You can't just say, 'Do as I say, not as I do,'" she added. "He's the best thing to happen to me, for sure."
