Emmy Awards 2011 – Funny Moment During the Announcement of Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy
September 19, 2011 by cd
The announcement of Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy at the Emmy Awards suddenly became “pageanty” ala Miss Universe.
This is one of the funniest moments in the recently-concluded Emmy Awards 2011.
After presenters Sofia Vergara and Robe Lowe announced her name as one of the nominees, Amy Poehler of “Parks and Recreation” rushed to the stage followed by the rest of the “Best Actress in a Comedy Series” nominees: Melissa McCarthy for “Mike & Molly”, Edie Falco for “Nurse Jackie”, Tina Fey for “30 Rock”, Laurie Linney for “The Big C” and Martha Plimpton for “Raising Hope”, when their names were called.
The winner got a crown just like Miss Universe! She’s no other than Melissa McCarthy for “Mike and Molly.”
McCarthy, on her speech, said “Wow, it’s my first and best pageant ever!”
