Melanie Lynskey was honoured for her role in Prime Video’s “Yellowjackets” at Sunday’s Critics Choice Awards.

Lynskey plays Shauna in the series, which follows a high school girl soccer team whose plane crashes deep in the Canadian wilderness.

As she picked up her best actress in a drama series award, the New Zealand-born actress shared: “I’m gonna be really bad at this speech. There’s so many amazing women in this category. I can’t believe it. I can’t believe I’m mentioned alongside you.”

Lynskey gave a shoutout to the drama’s “beautiful cast,” insisting they’re “the most talented group of people I’ve ever had the opportunity to work with.”

“Sophie Nélisse, you did about 70 per cent of the work for me playing young Shauna. You’re a miracle and I love you. You’re all amazing,” she gushed of her co-star. “All my wonderful friends who I got to work alongside, thank you.”

Lynskey then thanked the show’s creators for giving her “this opportunity” and letting her be “exactly as I am [and] not asking me to change anything or do anything different,” as well as thanking her agent, Rhonda Price.

She also gave a very special mention to her daughter and her husband, Jason Ritter, whom she gushed was the “love of my life” and “the greatest support.”

Lynskey didn’t forget one person who has been a huge help with her “Yellowjackets” journey.

She shared, “The most important person I think I have to thank before I finish is my nanny, Sally. I love her.

“She’s an absolute angel. She’s with my child and my child is safe and taken care of and she allows me to go and do my work. Thank you, Sally. I love you so much.”

Actor and host Dave Karger was among those congratulating the actress on social media, posting:
