It was no doubt a privilege to receive the award from Amy Adams, a five-time Oscar nominee who has appeared in hits including Julie & Julia and The Fighter.
It comes fresh off Margot’s own Academy Award nomination for her role as disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in the black comedy I, Tonya.
The talented blonde also produced the film, which has additionally been nominated for two other Oscars.

Margot’s rise in Hollywood has been swift and momentous, following her breakout role in 2014’s Wolf of Wall Street.

Speaking to Who Magazine last week, the beauty said she ‘would totally’ reprise her as Donna Freedman on the popular soap.
