Anoche se me cumplió un sueño. Gracias a la Academia por este regalo. Me siento muy orgullosa de pertenecer a la comunidad cinematográfica de este país. Y muy contenta de recibir este Ariel por mi trabajo en #LosAdioses, por un personaje que amé tanto y con una directora tan chingona y rifada. Fue además una alegría mayor porque estaban ahí mi preciosa hija Sofía, y mi amor Cuceb Piloto para celebrar conmigo. Gracias a toda la gente que se puso feliz por mi, gracias por su generosidad y su infinita buena onda. #Ariel60 Styling @josepe_luis Vestido @halston Accesorios @felinajewelry By @mondrestore Complementos @gvgranvia
