“What just happened? What’s happening? Oh my God. Tell me where to go, I have no idea. Oh my God this is so cool!” the actress said when Eddie Redmayne handed her the envelope with her name inside.

This is Larson’s first win and her first nomination.

“The story has so much to do with this beautiful allegory with growing up, of being young and living in a small space and seeing things in black and white,” Larson told EW recently. “It takes courage, when the moment happens, to step outside this small space into a world that’s bigger and more complex. That’s exactly what’s happening in my own life.”

Her performance in the movie has also earned her a Golden Globe and a SAG award in the best actress categories.

The other nominees were Cate Blanchett for Carol Jennifer Lawrence for Joy, Charlotte Rampling for 45 Years and Saoirse Ronan for Brooklyn. 

ABC tweeted, “Relive @brielarson’s Best Actress #Oscars acceptance speech presented by @SamsungMobileUS”
