Ayo Edebiri and Da'Vine Joy Randolph are raking big wins this award season.

Over the weekend, both stars came out on top in their respective categories at the 2024 SAG Awards. After their history-making wins, respect their names because yesterday's price is not today's price.

"This is insane. Okay, I'm so grateful. I'm really, really, really just grateful and I'm looking out at this room of people whose work moves me and motivates me and makes me feel and laugh, and I'm just so grateful to be here," she said while accepting the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series. 

"And I'm going to butcher just really bastardize a James Baldwin quote, because I heard it the other day but the act of love is just really an act of mirroring, and I think anything that anybody sees in me that's worth anything is because of the people who love me and support me and it made me who I am."

She also thanked the show's cast and crew, adding, "I just wouldn't be possible without you guys. You're a miracle and I'm so grateful to be in your company. It's made me a better person and I hope a better actor. Thank you so much."

That same evening, Randolph was awarded for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for her character in "The Holdovers." This season, she has received a Golden Globe, Critics Choice Award, Spirit Award, and a BAFTA for that portrayal.

"The fearlessness of your work and grace that you all carry yourselves with is such an inspiration to me. I am beyond humbled, and I am so incredibly grateful to be considered amongst you," she said while recognizing her peers in the category including Emily Blunt for "Oppenheimer," Danielle Brooks for "The Color Purple," Penélope Cruz for "Ferrari" and Jodie Foster for "Nyad."

She also gave a shout-out to her "Holdovers" costars, Paul Giamatti and Dominic Sessa, thanking them for their "generosity and honesty."

While reflecting on her career, she continued, "I also want to take a moment to say that every role that I have ever played, has been crafted thanks to those who are nearest and dearest to me. Some of the most brilliant actors I know whose talents have yet to be properly acknowledged by the world."

"For every actor out there still waiting in the wings for their chance, let me tell you, your life can change in a day," she added. "It is not a question of if, but when. Keep going. Thank you."

Randolph is nominated for an Oscar for her role in "The Holdovers." That ceremony kicks off March 10 at 7 p.m. EDT/4 p.m. PDT on ABC.
