Brie Larson won big at the SAG Awards this past weekend--taking home the Best Actress in A Movie award for her role in Room.

Beating out some stiff competition, Brie Larson won over Cate Blanchett, who was nominated for her role in Carol, Helen Mirren for Woman in Gold, Saoirse Ronan for Brooklyn, and Sarah Silverman for her role in I Smile Back.

"I feel like I was born questioning everything about reality, feeling lost and alone and always worried that I was deeply unlovable," Brie Larson said as she accepted her SAG Award.

"And watching your movies...made me feel less alone and made me feel like that was a safe place to explore my creativity," she added.

Larson thanked her onscreen son, the very sweet Jacob Tremblay, calling him her "inspiration."

"Everything that is this movie is because of you," she said to the little boy, who smiled at her from the audience.

Brie Larson also won a Golden Globe for her lead in Room, and has been nominated for an Academy Award for the same.

Room follows a young woman (Brie Larson) who has been held captive in a shed for several years with her five-year-old son (Jacob Tremblay). Her captor is her son's father.
