Julianna Margulies took home the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her work on The Good Wife (her second win for the role of Alicia Florrick, and her third overall.)

“What a wonderful time for women on television!” Margulies exclaimed, before explaining that her award really belongs to the show’s writers and “gorgeous” cast — especially Christine “Beacon of Light” Baranski and Josh Charles, whom she misses every day.

To clinch this category, Margulies had to outdo some of television’s finest dramatic actresses, including Masters of Sex‘s Lizzy Caplan, Homeland‘s Claire Danes, Downton Abbey‘s Michelle Dockery, Scandal‘s Kerry Washington and House of Cards‘ Robin Wright.
