 Margot Robbie has won Best Actress in a Comedy for her career-best performance in I, Tonya.

The 27-year-old was visibly shocked and appeared on the verge of joyous tears as the announcement was made at the Critic’s Choice Awards in Los Angeles on Thursday.

Her acclaimed, versatile performance as troubled former Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding deservedly beat-out a particularly strong field.

Go figure! Margot Robbie left stunned and on the verge of tears as she wins best actress at the Critics' Choice Awards for her amazing performance as skating outcast Harding in I, Tonya

 When the announcement came down, there was hardly a dry eye in The Barker Hangar, as the girl from Dalby, Queensland outclassed Hollywood elites once more.

Not that she’d describe it that way, the beauty appearing truly humbled, clasping a hand to her chest in shock.

She was stopped by fellow-nominee Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird) on her way to the stage, tears welling in both actresses’ eyes as they shared an embrace. 

Margot also toppled Tiffany Haddish (Girl’s Trip), Zoe Kazan (The Big Sick) and Emma Stone (Battle of the Sexes) to claim the victory.

 The Australian is also nominated for Best Actress in what is one of the closest races that category has seen in some time.

She’s up against the likes of favourite Frances McDormand (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) and awards magnet Meryl Streep (The Post).

Jessica Chastain (Molly’s Game), Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water) and Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird) round out the nominees.

Victorious! Margot also toppled Tiffany Haddish (Girl's Trip), Zoe Kazan (The Big Sick) and Emma Stone (Battle of the Sexes) to claim the victory

 Margot was looking every bit the Hollywood glamazon upon arrival at the Hangar, located at the South Side of Santa Monica Airport.

 The 27-year-old was joined by husband Tom Ackerley as she stepped out at the star-studded event in a gorgeous frilly striped ensemble.

Cutting a stylish figure, the I, Tonya star effused beauty in the strapless gold and black striped frock.
