Anya Taylor Joy’s Acceptance Speech
Anya Taylor Joy took her to look up a notch when she wore a checkered “chess-inspired” manicure. The nail-art was inspired by her show, for which she took home an award that night, The Queen’s Gambit. The perfection of details made her look even more flawless.

Her role is a fictional version of Beth Harmon.
