No doubt Amy Schumer has done awesome things with her badass, game-changing comedy, and one star in particular can't say enough about her.

Selena Gomez presented the Inside Amy Schumer mastermind with the Hollywood Comedy Award at last night's Hollywood Film Awards, and included some seriously adorable loads of praise, calling Schumer the first comedian to "speak to the women of my generation," according to E! Online. The Revival star also gushed:

"I talk about her obsessively. I've tweeted her often. I try to impersonate her and it doesn’t really work...Amy, you've inspired me not to take myself too seriously when I sit on my couch and I’m depressed about certain things. You constantly made me feel I'm a badass even though most of the time I'm not. You say the things I wish I could say and you never ever make me feel bad about anything I do in my personal life."

Before bringing Schumer to the stage, Gomez added, "I actually just met her so basically what I’m saying is I'm really happy that clearly Jennifer Lawrence wasn't able to do this tonight because I love you." The comedian assured Gomez she wanted her presenting the award, responding with, "I didn't even ask Jen. Selena, you were my first choice."

Aww. We love seeing so much love shown by mutual admirers. We also couldn't agree with Selena's sentiments.
