Jessica Hobbs said, “Not a lot of women have won this award so I feel I’m standing on the shoulders of some extraordinary people,” she said on stage accepting the award.

“I’m very grateful for the path they led, and I particularly would like to pay tribute to my mom who at 77 is still directing.”

Kate Winslet also returned with the mini-series and won the best actress award in the limited series show for her outstanding performance.
