Before the more lighthearted contents of her speech, she began with a message to Australia: “Australia, I love you, my heart goes out to everyone who is suffering in Australia, all the animals that we’ve lost.”

“Thank you so much to the Hollywood foreign press. I feel humbled and honored to receive this, the first person after Carol Burnett is quite an honor, so thank you so much. It’s a prestigious award and what I like most about it is I knew coming in that I would win. I mean, there’s nothing worse than sitting there like most of you waiting and wondering if you’re going to win and politely acting like, I’m going to listen to everyone’s speeches and it’s nice and it’s not,” she said.

She detailed her journey through Hollywood, going on to say: “I got a talk show and I was able to be myself. And that was 17 years ago. And I feel like you’ve all really gotten to know me over the past 17 years. I am an open book. And I couldn’t have done it without my husband Mark. Mark, you are my rock. Thank you for supporting me through this crazy journey I know it wasn’t easy for you or the kids, Rupert and Fiona, go to bed.”

Ellen‘s actual wife, Portia de Rossi, laughed from the audience.

“All I’ve ever wanted to do was make people feel good and laugh. There’s no greater feeling than when someone tells me that I’ve made their day better with my show or that I’ve helped them get through a sickness or a hard time in their lives. But the real power of television for me is that, not that people watch my show, but people watch my show and then they’re inspired to go out and do the same thing in their own lives, make people laugh or be kind or help someone less fortunate than themselves that is the power of television. I’m so, so grateful to be a part of it. Thank you so much, everybody,” she went on to say, ending on an emotional note.
