Backstage she said:

When I was younger, when I was 14, I was told by a drama teacher that I might do OK if I was happy to settle for the fat girl parts. So what I always feel in these moments is that any young woman who has ever been put down by a teacher, by a friend, by even parents, just don't listen to any of it, because that's what I did. I kept on going and I overcame my fears and got over my insecurities... I would like to dedicate this prize to all the girls who are doubting themselves.

11. And get a hand rub from Leo en route to collecting her Best Supporting Actress award.

Lastly there's one person I have to thank. I would not be standing up here if it weren't for this person. I didn't grow up in a life of privilege, I grew up in a very rough neighbourhood in east Los Angeles and this woman drove me three hours a day to a different school to show me a different opportunity. It's her birthday today. Mum, Happy Birthday! I love you very much.
