Accepting the award for Trailblazer of the Year at the London event, Schumer was at once bawdy, empowering and wonderfully unpretentious.
“I’m like 160 pounds right now, and I can catch a dick whenever I want, and that’s the truth,” she said at the start of her speech to wild applause.
Schumer joked about how female comedians are typically treated poorly in photo shoots, and slammed some women’s magazines for making you feel “bad for just being born with a pussy.” She also gave a shout-out to actress Goldie Hawn, who was at the event, for being “beautiful and vulnerable and fucking hilarious.”
Several celebrities praised the 34-year-old comedian for her laugh-out-loud acceptance speech. Kerry Washington, who clinched the International TV Actress award at Tuesday’s event, said it “gave me life.”
So @amyschumer just did a ten minute speech at the Glamour Awards and tore the fucking roof off. Standing ovation. She is Lady God.
