Guys, something crazy is happening tonight. There must be something in the water at the Emmys because the celebrities are going bonkers. This is more eventful than any other awards show in recent history, and that includes the year that Clint Eastwood yelled at a chair for an extended period of time.
There was an actual, real-live proposal that took place on stage after someone accepted an award. It was real. He must have planned it in advance, but I can tell you that no one else in that room, including his now-fiancée, knew what was going on. She was shocked, Leslie Jones' reaction is one for the books, and everyone else was also left with jaws on the floor.
Life in 2018 is a crazy roller coaster, but this was by far one of the most heartwarming, most positive moments so far. Seriously, you have to see the GIFs and the pictures. You won't be able to stop yourself from smiling.
Glenn Weiss just won the Emmy for outstanding directing for a variety special for his direction of the Oscars.
