Golden Globes: Rachel Brosnahan Wins Best Actress for 'Marvelous Mrs. Maisel'

"I am so endlessly proud to be a part of it, but there are so many women's stories out there that still need and deserve to be told," the first-time Golden Globe winner said during her acceptance speech.

Rachel Brosnahan took home her first Golden Globe for best performance by an actress in TV series, comedy or musical on Sunday night for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. 

The actress beat out Pamela Adlon (Better Things), Alison Brie (Glow), Issa Rae (Insecure) and Frankie Shaw (SMILF). 

During her acceptance speech, Brosnahan, visibly nervous, explained that her brain was "scrambled eggs," but was quick to express gratitude over playing a "brilliant" and "bold" woman. And she directed attention to the women whose stories "deserve to be told." 

"This is a story about a bold and brilliant and complicated woman, and I am so endlessly proud to be a part of it, but there are so many women's stories out there that still need and deserve to be told," the first-time Golden Globe winner said. "So as we enter into this new year please let's continue to hold each other accountable and invest in and champion and make these stories."

In the press room backstage, Brosnahan explained how nervous she felt playing such a "confident woman" in her character. "When I read the script, the thing that stood out to me the most is that Midge is the most unapologetically confident woman I’d ever read in a script, and that scared the crap out of me and desperately made me want to play this part."

Seth Meyers hosted the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards, which took place at the Beverly Hilton.
