Maggie Gyllenhaal is great. She just won the Best Actress in a Miniseries or TV Movie Golden Globe for “The Honourable Woman.” Her speech was perfect.
“I’ve noticed a lot of people talking about the wealth of roles for powerful women in television lately. And when I look around the room at the women who are here and I think about the performances that I’ve watched this year what I see actually are women who are sometimes powerful and sometimes not, sometimes sexy, sometimes not, sometimes honorable, sometimes not, and what I think is new is the wealth of roles for actual women in television and in film. That’s what I think is revolutionary and evolutionary and it’s what’s turning me on.”
Watch, watch, watch:
