Maggie Gyllenhaal Is Inspired By Hillary Clinton
This little one is all grown up.
Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard attended the 31st Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards on Nov. 29 with one very special date in tow: the couple’s 15-year-old daughter, Ramona. For her rare night out, Ramona wore a black silk dress with lace sleeves, while her mom shined in a short-sleeved gold sequined gown. Maggie’s other half, Peter, wore a black tuxedo, paired with a white button-down for the special occasion.
The stars are also parents to 9-year-old daughter Gloria Ray, who was not in attendance for the nighttime festivities.
Maggie’s film, The Lost Daughter—a psychological drama film of which she wrote the screenplay and directed, starring Olivia Colman and Dakota Johnson—scored four awards at the event for her feature directorial debut. Maggie took home the award for Best Screenplay, Best Feature and Breakthrough Director. Olivia shared the award for Outstanding Lead Performance with Frankie Faison, star of The Killing of Kenneth Chamberlain.
In her first acceptance speech of the night, Maggie gave a sweet shout-out to those closest to her.
“I have so many things to say and so many people to thank,” she said. “But for some reason I really want to thank my mother [Naomi Foner Gyllenhaal], who is a screenwriter. And the truth is I think we get along better when we’re talking about scripts than a lot of other things. And I also want to thank my daughter. Without whom—and my other daughter who’s at home with my brother and my mom right now—I would never would have known how to write this script.”

In another one of Maggie’s acceptance speeches of the night, she gave an adorable dose of credit to a notable actor within her feature film: husband Peter, who played the role of Professor Hardy.
“There’s one other actor who I didn’t mention, who is my favorite,” Maggie said. “I just want to say, I’m talking about my husband. There’s a whole tradition of women who are smart and hot and interesting and support their husbands. And there’s not all—there hasn’t been much opportunity for smart hot, interesting, men to support their wives. And my husband, I think is a…what do you call it? He’s a groundbreaker.”
The Lost Daughter also stars Ed Harris, Paul Mescal, Dagmara Domińczyk, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Jack Farthing, and Alba Rohrwacher.
Maggie’s award-winning film will hit theaters on Dec. 17 and will be available on Netflix from Dec. 31. Keep scrolling for all the red carpet pics from the Gotham Awards.
