An Emmys Acceptance Speech Turned Into a Marriage Proposal and the Audience Lost It

Director and producer Glenn Weiss decided his Emmy’s acceptance speech for Outstanding Directing for a Variety Series was the ideal stage to propose. After lamenting the recentdeath of his mother and emphasizing how much she loved his girlfriend, he switched gears: “The reason I don’t like calling you my girlfriend is because I want to call you my wife.” The two then shared a moment on stage while the audience’s jaws dropped in excitement and shock.

Exhibit A: Leslie Jones in complete disbelief.
