Wow, can we get a round of applause please for this unexpected win? But there's more than just this win that's keeping Boston native Ayo Edebiri in the entertainment news headlines.

Congratulations to Ayo for her very first Golden Globe nomination. Then to win for “Best Female Actor in a Television Series Musical or Comedy" just adds to the excitement of this relatively unknown actress.

Ayo won for her role as Chef Sydney Adamu in the hit FX television series The Bear. It's about the ups and downs of a team of chefs and workers in the restaurant industry at a chaotic restaurant in Chicago that transitions from a sandwich shop to fine dining.

Anyway, Ayo Edebiri according to Boston Uncovered, who is 28-years-old has only been acting for 10 years with roles in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, Abbott Elementary, and Black Mirror as well.

But outside of this incredible win for the young up-and-comer, her acceptance speech is dominating the headlines for its class act moment that has everyone talking from such an unknown.

According to the Huff Post, while most winners use their acceptance speech to thank the big wigs of Hollywood and those on the set like the cast, crew, agents, heads of production, and family members, Ayo thanked, in a brief, very sweet moment the unsung heroes, the assistants.

To the people who answer my emails, y’all are real ones.  Thank you for answering my crazy, crazy emails.

She received quite a round of applause for recognizing them which is now one of the most talked about, genuine moments of the night.

I'm sure assistants and former assistants everywhere, and in any industry for that matter, appreciate it.

The House That Cereal Built - Step Inside the Kellogg Mansion

Taking a peek into the Kellogg Mansion is like stepping back in time. The home, built in 1925 was originally known as the Villa Marina in Dunedin Isles.

William Kellogg, who founded the Michigan-based Kellogg's company only lived in the sprawling mansion for about three years (during the winter months) before his death in 1951. Eventually, the home succumbed to structural damage and was demolished a few years ago.

In addition to the photos below, you can take a virtual tour of the home using virtual reality. A news story highlighting the University of Florida's program is included below.
