Now I have to admit that I owe most of my English to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. I grew up with these girls, so watching them receive this award was almost like watching my childhood friends being awarded. Plus the fact that they decided to thank each other nearly made my heart melt. Congratulations little Olsens!!
