Debicki couldn't be happier when she learned the news, and before she received the Award, she expressed her gratitude to an interviewer by saying: "I’m feeling fresh, fancy, free, excited, happy and grateful. It means a great deal to me because of the women who are behind this award. I respect them all so deeply. To be recognized by your peers means so much."
Speaking of the organizer, 'The Great Gatsby' actress says: "Max Mara is empowering to women. It’s designed for women to feel like themselves."
Furthermore, she also said: "No pressure. It means a great deal. I have always deeply respected the work that they do. I think they’ve always been incredibly progressive and really ahead of the curve in terms of pushing for female equality and they’re amazing women. These are really women who are making a change in the industry."

Elizabeth Debicki then went on to acknowledge the women who supported her in Hollywood as she said: "It’s mainly just people being kind and being there when you need them personally or being there to just give you a little booster or tell you the truth — tell you that you are worthy and you are good."
Fellow attendee director Kay Cannon at the event also admitted he was excited to see the bunch of 'women celebrating women.'
"Women in Film highlights different people that I wouldn’t have ever known about had they not highlighted them. So much good work gets lost in the shuffle. I like coming here to see all the women coming together and bonding with women. With visibility comes progress." added the Pitch Perfect writer and producer.
Elizabeth Debicki is next up for Christopher Nolan's upcoming film, 'Tenet' where she appears alongside Robert Pattison, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor‑Johnson, and John David Washington.
