Quinta Brunson had to step over Jimmy Kimmel to accept her Emmy
Kimmel remained out of the camera’s frame for the duration of Brunson’s speech, which lasted roughly one minute.
“Tomorrow maybe I’ll be mad at him. I’m going to be on his show on Wednesday, so I might punch him in the face,” she joked.
It would be the final time Brunson would appear onstage Monday. “Ted Lasso” won over “Abbott Elementary” in the outstanding comedy category, its second win in as many years.
Brunson, meanwhile, will return with the anticipated second season of “Abbott Elementary” on September 21.
