I always love specifically recognizing women who win prestigious accolades. Women are not new to the realm of film and television, but it’s always empowering to watch a woman win in a profession that is usually dominated by men.

I was very pleased with everyone who won, and felt that it was much deserved. A great example of a much-deserved win was the Golden Globes awarded to Lena Dunham and the show Girls.

Girls, which premiered this past year, opened to negative and positive criticisms. At first, critics were not fans of the provocatively realistic depiction of 20-something year old females living in New York City, but the show grew on critics, who named it a top comedy series this year, with Lena Dunham (the show’s creator, writer, and lead actress) beating out Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a Best Actress Winner.

It’s truly inspiring to watch someone who was not expected to win anything beat out the rest of the competition, and I hope that all of you use Dunham’s wins as a means of motivation.

Here are the rest of the female winners of the 2013 Golden Globes:
