Natalie Portman and her beautiful baby bump accepted the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role for Black Swan last night with an emotional speech. Natalie tearful thanked her family and friends and love, Benjamin Millipied.
“Thank you. Thank you so much. This is insane!” Natalie began her first Oscar speech ever (via MTV News). “I truly and sincerely wish that the prize tonight was to get to work with my fellow nominees.”
With tears in her eyes, the 29-year-old was able to thank a long list (without a written reminder) of everyone who has helped her with her career.
And she gave special attention to her fiancé and father of her baby, Benjamin, as well as her parents.
“I want to thank my parents for giving me the opportunity to work from such an early age. My beautiful love, Benjamin, who has now given me my most important role of my life,” she said. “Most importantly, my family, my friends, and my love, thank you so much.”
