“I’m so very grateful for this. I’m in a room full of so many people who I admire and whose work has lifted me up,” she exclaimed. “I’m an artist, I’m very lucky to be an artist. I really want to acknowledge that.”
The camaraderie among “The Bear” cast was evident as Edebiri showered praise on her on-screen family. “That’s my family. I love you guys so much. It’s an honor to work with you and grow alongside you.”
Expressing love for her fellow nominees and her actual family, Edebiri’s speech radiated warmth and appreciation:
“The actresses I was nominated alongside, and also my real family, I love you guys too.”
Not forgetting the integral players behind the scenes, she highlighted the dedicated team that has been instrumental in her success:
“All of my agents and managers, assistants! The people who answer my emails. Ya’ll are real ones. Thank you for answering my crazy, crazy emails.”
“I’m really, really grateful. If I forgot to thank you, I’m sorry, unless you were mean or something.”
