SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Renee Zellweger just won the Oscar for best lead actress. It's her second win ever at the Academy Awards.

"Oh, please, I'm Judy."

For her role as legendary actress and singer Judy Garland in the biopic "Judy," Zellweger was a favorite in the race — especially considering it was one of her biggest performances after a six-year break from acting.

Before the Oscars, her work on "Judy" was honored at the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the BAFTAs.

After winning the Golden Globe for best actress in a drama film, Zellweger told reporters: "The thing I took away [from the film] is gratitude, the shared experience of it and this celebration of Judy Garland. Her legacy means so much to so many people."
