The 2018 Emmys Were All Set To Be Incredibly Boring, But Then The Marriage Proposal Happened…WATCH THE SHOCKING MOMENT INSIDE! (VIDEO)
Let’s start out with some honesty, the 2018 Emmys were mostly boring. The hosts of the show, Colin Jost and Michael Che were about as funny as an episode of Saturday Night Live. It seemed like almost every joke they had fell flat.
And most of the speeches were in your standard, “Thank you to my manager, wife, assistant, cast, etc” format.
Nothing magical happened until Glenn Weiss showed up. And we know what you’re thinking, “Who the f**k is Glenn Weiss?” That’s what everyone was thinking when he walked to the stage to accept the award for outstanding directing for a variety special for his work on the most recent Oscars.
Everyone assumed this would be another speech to forget, but Mr. Weiss shocked everyone. His speech contained almost every single emotion. At first, you were kind of chuckling to yourself because he seemed a bit nervous and it was such a random award. And then you went “awww” when he started talking about his mother who passed away two weeks ago.
And then you went, “OH SH*T!” when he proposed to his girlfriend with the same ring his father gave his mother decades ago. And the way he did it was super smooth.
“Mom always believed in finding the sunshine in things and she adored my girlfriend Jan. Jan, you are the sunshine in my life. And mom was right, don’t ever let go of your sunshine. You wonder why I don’t like to call you my girlfriend? Because I want to call you my wife.”
Every celebrity in the building was on their feet clapping. It was truly a special moment and thankfully his girlfriend Jan said yes.
Leslie Jones had the perfect reaction…
