“I know [where] this award comes from — thank you to the people,” Ellen said. “Thanks for all of my fans for supporting me and sticking by me, I can’t tell you how grateful I am and what this means to mean, it’s more than I could possibly tell you, especially now.” If you have missed the news from over the summer, Ellen had faced allegations of toxic on-set behaviour, and in the past several months she has taken steps with her staff to rectify things.
