When Maggie Gyllenhaal accepted her Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Mini-Series or TV Movie for her role in The Honorable Woman, she gave her brother, Jake, a quick shout-out: "I gave my speech to my brother, so if I need help he's going to bring it up to me," she joked. Sadly, we didn't get to see him rush up the stairs to help his sister. Because it turns out she did just fine.

"I've noticed a lot of people talking about the wealth of roles for powerful women in television lately," she continued. "And when I look around the room at the women who are in here, and I think about the performances that I've watched this year, what I see actually are women who are sometimes powerful and sometimes not; sometimes sexy, sometimes not; sometimes honorable, sometimes not."

"What I think is new is the wealth of roles for actual women in television and in film. That's what I think is revolutionary and evolutionary, and it's what's turning me on."
