Despite cries from the Internet for a Jane Krakowski victory and tweens/suburban moms pleading for another Jane Lynch win, Merritt Wever took home the Primetime Emmy for Best Supporting Acrtess in a Comedy Series. This was Wever's second consecutive nomination in the category for her portrayal of Zoey Barkow on Nurse Jackie.

When accepting her award from Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, Wever essentially made her way to the microphone and said that she had to bail, making it the short and sweet speech everyone was hoping for when they found out that Merritt Wever was taking home the Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role on Nurse Jackie.

The speech was so short and so wonderful that host Neild Patrick Harris immediately thanked Wever for giving America "the best acceptance speech ever." He's not wrong, really.
