Here She Is! Miss Emmys 2011, Melissa McCarthy!

| Filed under: Tina FeyAmy PoehlerEmmys

Hands down, one of the best moments of last night's show! The pure joy on her face. The camaraderie of these amazing women. If more people in Hollywood were this supportive of each other, imagine how different the world would be!

Imagine how different our world would be! But we digress…

Last night, Melissa McCarthy walked away with the Emmy for Best Actress in a Comedy, after she joined her fellow five nominees onstage for some, shall we say, "pageantry." We're still not entirely sure if this was planned or if Amy Poehler got the ball rolling and everyone just followed along, but either way, these ladies were the HIGHlight of the evening.

And when Melissa won and the room exploded and she started to cry out of shock … we just lost it! We used like fifty Kleenex in a minute and half. Don't act like you didn't too!

Check out Melissa's magical moment in the video (above)!

Bravo to you, girl!

    I've loved her since her Sookie days on Gilmore Girls. She is truly awesome!!

    O.K that was great, loved it!!!! But you don't know if was planned are you deft…there was a crown and Roses. Though I like Melissa, her show is a little boring, so much talent up there.

    I didn't know it was planned until the wide shot after Tina Fay went up and you could see someone with roses. But needless to say, planned or not, I did get teary. It was Melissa's first emmy nomination and she won and I am proud of her. What an experience!

    why did you cry? i dont understand…. can you explain :s

    Besides the crown and roses, you can also tell it was planned because they did not show video of the girls in their roles after announcing their names like they did with the guys.

    Me too. Glad she's getting recognition.

    I think Amy Pohler and Tina Fey were in on it… I mean, they were first and last being called up and are really close. I think maybe others got word of it, but it was a surprise to many either on stage or in the audience. Regardless it was sweet, unique and funny just like all of those comedians. They are a great group of talent, and it was the moment of the night for me. I am not a fan of her show, but her timing and comedic ability is a natural gift.

    I was so happy to see her win lastnight. She's finally getting the recognition she deserves. If Gilmore Girls had been on a respected network instead of the WB/CW, she quite possibly would have won long before now.

    i think only amy and tina were in on it. theyre reactions were the funniest, especially how tina acted like she actually won..trying to kiss the guy next to her lol.

    the other nominees were like uhh do we have to go up there, whats happening??!!

    im glad mellisa won and amy is soo funny :)

    Way to not get the joke Rob Lowe, they were showing how it didn't have to be cut-throat competitive and they can support each other and he goes: "girls, you're all winners"

    Re: Laura – oh dear lord are you serious??? rob got the joke. clearly you didn't.

    Amy Poehler is notorious for arranging some kind of "prank" whenever she gets nominated and all the women in her category always participate. This was absolutely brilliant and really showed that being nominated as a COMEDY actress should be just about that and not about who wins or loses. Well done!!!

    I don't even know who this person is, I am so out of touch with TV lately.
