"Thank you! Thank you so much!" Gerwig gushed during her acceptance speech. "Thank you to my cast, oh, my beautiful cast! The goddesses Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf are incredible. And Timmy and Lucas and Beanie and Odeya."
"I have eight seconds left," she concluded. "I want to say thank you to my mom and dad and the people of Sacramento who gave me roots and wings and helped me to get where I am today. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
