Erin Andrews just won big in her lawsuit against Marriott ... to the tune of $55 million.
The jury divided the responsibility for paying the award ... pervert Michael Barrett must pay just over $28 mil, and the hotel is on the hook for nearly $27 million.
Erin was asking for $75 million, but this is a clear victory on her part. She may never see a penny from Barrett, but she'll be able to enforce the judgment against the hotel.
The jury deliberated for 6 hours before reaching a unanimous verdict.
After the jury was dismissed, some of the jurors hugged Erin and one asked for her autograph.
Erin sued a Nashville Marriott for the stalking incident in which Barrett, secretly videotaped Erin in her hotel room. She claims the hotel was negligent by giving Barrett a room next to hers, at his request.
Barrett already pled guilty to interstate stalking and served 2 years in prison.
