Last month, Slate won the Critics’ Choice Award for Best Actress in a Comedy for her performance playing a woman who decides to get an abortion after an unplanned pregnancy in Obvious Child. While accepting the honor, Slate gave a memorable speech in which she thanked the critics and her parents, and praised Obvious Child writers Gillian Robespierre and Elizabeth Holm for their creative activism.

“Thank you very much for having me here tonight and to the critics for shining a light on our film,” she said. “I am so proud to be in a movie that is joyful and thoughtful and depicts a modern and authentic experience of unplanned pregnancy. I think it’s beautiful.”

“I want to thank my parents for encouraging me to be intelligent and kind and creative,” Slate continued, adding, “to Gillian Robespierre and Elisabeth Holm, who wrote this movie and who assert that even while we’re fighting for our rights, we can do so creatively. Activism and creative expression can go together.”
