Connie’s face was made up in light makeup complete with lashes, blush, and a subtle glossy lip. 

The 9-1-1 actress smiled and waved for photos on the step-and-repeat before graciously accepted her award on stage. 

Per Variety, the Boston native said in her acceptance speech, ‘My goal has always been to use my privilege on reflecting women back to themselves, in the characters that I play, so that women can see themselves or know themselves more honestly or more powerfully, maybe for the first time, as they never imagined before.’
