Amy Adams won her first Golden Globe in 2014 for her role in American Hustle—and returned to the stage once again Sunday evening, this time to accept the Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy award for her role in Tim Burton’s Big Eyes.

Although she’s been a Golden Globes regular since 2008 when she first nabbed a nomination for Enchanted, the actress wasn’t prepared to win this time around. “I didn’t even reapply lip gloss!” she said once she boarded the stage.

Adams went on to praise artist Margaret Keane, whom she played in Big Eyes, and to thank her husband. “I’m lucky because I get to stand here tonight with a man who stands behind me, Darren, who would never silence my voice,” she said. “So thank you, Darren.”

Her speech wasn’t all run-of-the-mill thank yous, though: Adams also addressed someone whom she said is at home “nurturing twins in her womb.” “Sorry, it’s getting weird,” Adams said immediately after the womb comment.

She ended her time onstage by thanking the women assembled at the Globes for having such strong voices and for being positive role models to her four-year-old.
