Revealed: The Secrets our Clients Used to Earn $3 Billion

Can Ayo Edebiri get a “yes, chef”?

After all, The Bear star took home the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series at the 2024 Screen Actors Guild Awards, vanquishing The Marvelous Mrs Maisel‘s Alex Borstein and Rachel Brosnahan, Ted Lasso‘s Hannah Waddingham and Abbott Elementary‘s Quinta Brunson

And throughout her speech, the 28- year-old had a really relatable minute when she attempted to remember a well-known quote off the cuff. (See everybody who got home with a win here.)

“I’m looking out at this room of people whose work moves me, and motivates me, and I’m just so grateful to be here,” Ayo stated while accepting her prize on phaseFeb 24, simply minutes after her costar Jeremy Allen White won. “And I’m going to butcher, simply truly bastardize a James Baldwin quote since I heard it a few days ago, however, ‘The act of love is simply truly an act of matching.’ And I believe anything that any person sees in me that deserves anything is since of individuals who enjoy me and support me and it made me who I am.”

Stunning in a black and white gingham dress, the Bottoms starlet went on name her castmates on the Hulu series as part of that unique group.
