The Golden Globe winner trekked the carpet in a black long-sleeve embellished dress from the Marc Jacobs Fall 2016 collection that she paired with black Jimmy Choo pumps.

In part, she said, “If I do a job just as well as man, people tune in every week. They see me, they root for me just like they root for him. Why should my pay be less? We’ve all we got ladies. If we don’t support each other who will?”
