The sponsor of the competition, Texas Monthly, has announced its winner.

After beating out Danny Trejo, Lewis Black, Coach Taylor (Kyle Chandler), Peggy, R. Lee Ermey and Danny Devito in the final eight in addition to “the angry voicemail” in the final two, Former Gov. Ann Richards‘ PSA was crowned winner.

According to Drafthouse founder and CEO Tim League, the former governor was a “regular customer.”

The director of the film, Austin-based filmmaker Carlos Funes, told Texas Monthly that until he showed up on the set and saw Richards himself, he thought an actress was going to play her. He called Richards “very directable.”

Behold the Texas icon in all her intimidating glory below, and never talk in an Alamo theater again:
