Robin Wright won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Series, Drama for her work in House of Cards. She beat out fellow nominees Julianna Margulies, Tatiana Maslany, Taylor Schilling, and Kerry Washington.

Once on stage, Wright referenced Merritt Wever’s memorable Emmy acceptance speech and her desire to do the same before thanking David Fincher for convincing her to do the show, as well as Netflix. After flashing a little bit of what appeared to be tape (to hold her dress in place), Wright wrapped up with, “Thank you everybody; I really appreciate this. Thanks.”

In addition to her Golden Globe win, Wright just picked up some more hardware: an engagement ring from fiancé Ben Foster. Backstage at the Globes, when Wright was congratulated on all her news, she said, “I’m shocked right now. Don’t know what’s going on exactly. It’s so new. We’re still talking about where, when, how. And I couldn’t be happier.”
