The Golden Globes brought about many surprises on Sunday night, but one category that was pretty much a lock was Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture. Viola Davis won the Golden Globe in this category for her role in Fences and gave an emotional speech that showed how much the story in the play-turned-film means to her.

In her speech, Davis thanked her co-stars and co-star/director, Denzel Washington, but towards the end she told a more personal story about her father and how his life connected to that of Troy's, the main character in Fences.

Check out a full-transcript of Davis' speech and the video of her acceptance below:

Davis never disappoints when it comes to her acting, and more and more it's clear that the same can be said when it comes to her acceptance speeches for her many awards.
