That didn't stop her from appreciating the people that were behind her while she strived for greatness. Janney thanked co-stars, fellow nominees, and others who were a part of her career, and thanked them for encouraging her to reach for greatness. 

Janney finally ended the speech by telling her late brother that the Award was for him. "...and this is for Hal. You are always in my heart." the actress concluded.
