"This landmark moment inspires me to work harder and dream bigger for all that is the future. I hope you feel as I do that it was all worth it, and I hope that I have touched your hearts even in a small way," she said at the event.

Jane Fonda, Lopez's co-star in Monster-In-Law, also spoke at the event.

"She should have an entire block of stars," Fonda said.

"In my opinion, she's only scratched the surface of what she's capable of," she added.
