Brie Larson is an all-around winner. Walking away with one of the most prestigious--not to mention competitive--awards at Sunday's Golden Globes, the actress and singer went home with the Best Actress in a Drama award for her role in the film Room.

Directed by Lenny Abrahamson and adapted from the novel of the same name by Emma Donoghue, Brie Larson plays the role of Ma, a woman living in captivity with her young son who was fathered by her captor.

Brie Larson gave a heartfelt acceptance speech, thanking Donoghue, Abrahamson, as well as her young co-star, Jacob Tremblay.

"I'm sorry to anyone I forgot," she said. "I'll send you a thank you card."

In addition to receiving this huge Golden Globes honor, Brie Larson also walked away knowing she was deemed the event's best dressed by Access Hollywood. Present on the red carpet at the Golden Globes, their reporters held an unofficial poll, critiquing many of the evening's fashions.

Brie Larson started out as a teen actress, then moved into the music field. She is known for her role in the TV sitcom Raising Dad, and appeared in films including 13 Going On 30. She had a role in Amy Schumer's 2015 film Trainwreck.

Sunday was a big night for Brie Larson. She received an incredible validation from the Hollywood Foreign Press and big kudos for her fashion prowess as well.
