The 39-year-old won the award for her bold role in "American Hustle".
"And most of all, you cannot play me out of talking about my daughter. My daughter Aviana, who's not old enough to understand this, but I love you so much ... thank you for teaching me to accept joy and let go of fear," people.com quoted Adams as saying on receiving the award.
During her speech, she also said that she's celebrating the 15th anniversary of her move to Los Angeles, saying that at that time she thought: "I don't know, maybe I'll get a commercial or something."
