At the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards, director Judd Apatow, who directed Amy Schumer in her debut film “Trainwreck,” with the 2016 Critics’ MVP Award after a year in her life where she was one of the most talked about people on the planet.

“I am plus, plus-size actress, Amy Schumer,” Schumer said to open her speech, sending the audiences into early hysterics.

“I can’t believe this whole year happened, and that Judd [Apatow] let me tell my story,” she said of the director of “Trainwreck,” noting that she has had to put up with heaps of criticism for her portrayal of a hard drinking, constantly horny young woman in the hit film.


Schumer even mentioned her recent “Vanity Fair” photoshoot with photographer Annie Leibovitz, where she posed partially nude. Schumer noted that scores of people had approached her telling her what a “brave photo” she had taken and that normally means you are out of shape.

“What a brave photo…you’re like ‘thanks, wow…thank you,” she joked.
After going into an extended comedy bit about the photo that would be right at home in one of her stand up routines, Schumer explained to the audience why her speech was going on a little longer than expected.

“I’m allowed to be indulgent, I’m never going to get an award again.”
