Julianne Moore took home her first Academy Award after winning Best Actress during the 2015 Oscars on Sunday.

The “Still Alice” lead star beat fellow actresses Reese Witherspoon (“Wild”), Rosamund Pike (“Gone Girl), Marion Cotillard (“Two Days, One Night”) and Felicity Jones (“The Theory of Everyting”) for the said award.

Moore has been nominated for four previous Oscars and was a heavy favorite to win this year’s Best Actress after winning a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award.

“There’s no such thing as Best Actress, as is evidenced by the performance of the nominees,” Moore said on her acceptance speech and added that she was grateful that her movie, “Still Alice”, has shed light on  Alzheimer’s disease.

“People with Alzheimer’s deserve to be seen so we can find a cure.”

Moore also paid tribute to the film directors, Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland, who are coping with Glatzer’s ALS diagnosis.

“Still Alice” is a movie based on the 2007 novel of Lisa Genova. The story revolves around Alice Howland, a Columbia University linguistics professor, diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s disease.
