Comedian Amy Schumer's acceptance speech for Glamour magazine's Trailblazer of the Year award may be the best thing you'll watch today. Not only is it hilarious, of course, but it nails the gross misogyny and double standards faced by women in the fashion industry and entertainment.

Actress and fellow award winner Kerry Washington immediately tweeted that Schumer "gave speech that gave me life!" while British writer Caitlin Moran said she "tore the fucking roof off." I couldn't agree more.
