America Ferrera Thanks ‘Barbie’ Director Greta Gerwig During Her People’s Choice Award Acceptance Speech

America Ferrera just snagged herself another shiny trophy, proving once again that she’s not just a talented actress but a force to be reckoned with. The latest addition to her awards shelf? The People’s Choice Award for her stellar performance in Greta Gerwig’s cinematic masterpiece, “Barbie.”

Picture this: Ferrera, basking in the glory of her victory, took the stage at the People’s Choice Award ceremony held in Santa Monica on a lazy Sunday. With her acceptance speech, she didn’t just thank her lucky stars; she practically serenaded them. But before diving into her gratitude pool, she couldn’t resist teasing Billie Eilish, the brain behind the catchy Barbie anthem, “What Was I Made For?” Ferrera quipped, “I’m only here because I want Billie Eilish to be my best friend. Billie, what do you say? Let’s make it happen!”

After giving Eilish a playful nudge, Ferrera got down to business, thanking everyone who voted for her and for Barbie. Whether you watched the movie once or made it a weekly ritual (we know you’re out there!), she appreciated every pink-clad supporter who showed up with bells on. And speaking of pink, she made sure to give a shoutout to Barbie’s dynamic duo, Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie. “Yes, yes, yes, all the flowers to both Greta and Margot for inviting me to represent the entire human race in Barbie Land. You’re welcome. I hope I did you proud,” Ferrera quipped, adding a sprinkle of sass to her gratitude.

But she wasn’t done yet. Ferrera dove deeper, expressing her heartfelt appreciation for the opportunity to be part of such a groundbreaking film. She described it as a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a part of such a bold and inspiring masterpiece and to get to speak words of truth that so many of us needed to hear out loud.” And what truth is that, you ask? Well, according to Ferrera, Barbie isn’t just a doll; she’s an invitation for us all to embrace our quirks, flaws, and fabulousness.

And let’s not forget the competition Ferrera triumphed over to claim her throne as the People’s Choice. She faced off against the likes of Simu Liu, Danielle Brooks, Jacob Elordi, Charles Melton, Natalie Portman, Melissa McCarthy, and Viola Davis. But in the end, it was Ferrera who emerged victorious, proving that she’s not just a Barbie girl; she’s the Barbie queen!
