“My family, my daughter Ripley turns 18 today and I get to guide you and love you and protect you, which is my north star, I love you so much baby,” she said. “Thank you, thank you for this,” she concluded, before walking offstage with The Handmaid’s Tale stars Elisabeth Moss and Samira Wiley, who had presented her with the award.
