How Amy Schumer Won the Entire Critics' Choice Awards

How Amy Schumer Won the Entire Critics' Choice Awards

It may have been called The Critics' Choice Awards, but Sunday night was really "The Amy Schumer Show."

The funny and talented Amy Schumer won the award for Best Actress in a Comedy, and Judd Apatow aptly named her MVP of the year: "Who had a bigger year than Amy Schumer, ever?"

And in true Schumer fashion, she called out Hollywood for being obsessed with weight.

"I am plus-plus-size actress Amy Schumer," she said when she came to the microphone. "Thank you for this trophy, covering the reason I have to write my own [stuff]," the "Trainwreck" star joked, holding the award over her midsection. "If you’re an actress and you have this area right here, you have to write your own stuff if you want to get it made."

She also thanked the critics and Apatow for seeing and hearing her this past year: "Thank you so much, I can’t believe that this whole year has happened and that Judd let me tell my story and I’m so happy I don’t have to talk about how autobiographical it is anymore."

Watch her accept the MVP award:
