Michelle Williams and Thomas Kail ruled the 2020 Golden Globes , Michelle Williams didn’t use her acceptance speech to merely thank those that she had worked with on Fosse/Verdon. She used her time on stage to deliver a powerful message.
“I’m grateful for the acknowledgment of the choices I’ve made and I’m also grateful to have lived in a moment in our society where choice exists, because as women and as girls, things can happen to our bodies that are not our choice,” Williams told the crowd. “I’ve tried my very best to live a life of my own making, and not just a series of events that happened to me. But one that I could stand back and look at and recognize my handwriting all over. Sometimes messy and scrawling, sometimes careful and precise. But one that I had carved with my own hand. And I wouldn’t have been able to do this without employing a woman’s right to choose.”
Williams also did her part to get out the vote: “Women are the largest voting body in the country. Let’s make it look more like us,” she said.
