Following Stephen Colbert's somewhat complimentary presentation of the award for Best Actress in a Comedy Series, Seinfeld alum Julia Louis-Dreyfus took the stage to accept it and almost pulled a Halle Berry in the process!
Although she managed to hold back her tears, she was a total nervous mess (above) and even forgot her acceptance speech at her seat. Luckily, fellow nominee Amy Poehler totally had her back and ran up to the stage with it!
Such a sweet tag team!
The Veep star paid the Parks and Recreation star back at the end of her speech though.
It's always cute to see nominees who are earnestly excited to be honored for their work, but we're a little surprised she wasn't more composed considering it was her THIRD career Emmy!
We're happy she's just as excited to win her third as she was to win her first! Congrats, gurl!
