She bested a stacked subject that included Cynthia Erivo (“Harriet”), Scarlett Johansson (“Marriage Story”), Saoirse Ronan (“Little Women”) and Charlize Theron (“Bombshell”).
“Boy, it is an honor to be considered in your company,” she mentioned, earlier than praising the ability of “heroes” to unite, calling out figures together with Neil Armstrong, Selena, Harriet Tubman, and Martin Scorsese.

“Ms Garland, you are certainly among the heroes who unite and define us, and this is certainly for you.”
