Rachel Brosnahan has won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series.

Brosnahan was honored for her work as fast-talking mom and comedian Midge Maisel on Amazon Prime Video’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

“I have wanted to be an actor for as long as I can remember, and to be able to count you all in this room as my peers, let alone to stand up on this stage, is beyond my wildest dream,” Brosnahan said when she took the stage to accept her award. “Thank you so much.”

The 28-year-old actress — who took home her second Golden Globe for Maisel earlier this month — was nominated for her SAG Award alongside her costar Alex Borstein.

“It’s been really wonderful exploring how their friendship becomes more intimate and their partnership becomes more real for both of them,” Brosnahan told EW in December of working with Borstein on season 2 of their streaming hit. “The first season followed Midge discovering her voice in a brand new way after her picture-perfect life fell apart and season 2 tracks the ripple effect of this explosive secret she’s sitting on.”

Brosnahan and Borstein were nominated in the category along with Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda for Grace and Frankie and Alison Brie for Glow.
