Why Michelle Williams Owes Her Golden Globe Win To Her Daughter

The Best Actress winner was very candid and emotional in her acceptance speech.

Michelle Williams had a triumphant night yesterday evening at the Golden Globes. She managed to edge out stars like Charlize Theron and Kate Winslet to take home the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for her work in My Week With Marilyn. The Hollywood press deemed that Williams' reincarnation of maybe the biggest sex symbol of all times—Marilyn Monroe of course—was the worthiest between the deserving candidates of the coveted award. But Williams was fast to redirect the credit where she believes it's due:

"I consider myself a mother first and an actress second, and so the person I most want to thank is my daughter, my little girl, whose bravery and exuberance is the example that I take with me in my work and in my life," she said during her acceptance speech. "I want to say thank you for sending me off to this job every day with a hug and a kiss. I couldn't have done it any other way. It made me so excited to come home at night," Williams directed at her daughter Matilda Ledger. "And for suffering for six months of bedtime stories, where all the princesses were read aloud in a Marilyn Monroe-sounding voice," added the 31-year-old actress.
