We sort of hope Merritt Wever wins the Emmy every year now after that legendary acceptance speech last night!

The Nurse Jackie star took home the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series in an upset win over Mayim Bialik, Jane Lynch, Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Jane Krakowski and Anna Chlumsky!

Merritt, who many probably also know as Schmidt's "other" girlfriend Elizabeth on New Girl, kept the awkward hilarity rolling as she walked the press line backstage at the Emmys too!

When reporters asked Merritt if she wanted to thank anyone, now that she had time to compose herself, she answered:

"I want to thank a lot of people…it's happening again!"

And then her nerves got the best of her for a SECOND time!

Merritt Wever Gives Us A Red Carpet Quickie At The Emmy Awards

Filed under: Fashion SmashionEmmysRed CarpetEdie Falco

Emmy Awards 2013: Merritt Wever walks the red carpet.

If you've never heard of Merritt Wever, you probably do now!

She was the actress who won the first award at the Emmy Awards tonight, winning Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in Nurse Jackie.

And, when we were waiting to hear her give a lovely speech thanking her parents, the crew and, we assume, Edie Falco, she instead got on stage, murmured one word, then dashed off stage!

Shortest speech in Emmy history??

That's too bad because she did look lovely in her high-waisted satin black and white gown, deep red lipstick, drop earrings, and a shoulder-length wavy bob.

Here's hoping we hear more insightful Merritt Wever speeches in the future!

Emmy Awards Gets Awkward! Merritt Wever Takes Home Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series In Record Time!

Filed under: Emmys

Well that was fast!

The first trophy given away at the Emmy Awards went to to Merritt Wever of Nurse Jackie, and it was in record time!

The actress beat out vets Mayim Bialik, Jane Lynch, Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Jane Krakowski, Anna Chlumsky, and if you blinked, you probably missed it!

Merritt sprinted to the stage, and apparently she had somewhere else to be because she DASHED off the stage after a very quick thank you!

Wherever she had to be, we hope she made it on time! Congrats, Merritt!

We gotta go, bye!
