She took home the trophy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, and Merritt Wever made quite an impression at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards last night (September 22).
After blurting out, Holy sh*t, to her costar Edie Falco, the Nurse Jackie starlet took the stage at the Nokia Theatre and simply stated, Oh my God, thanks so much. Thank you so much. Um, I gotta go. Bye!
Once backstage, Wever noted, “I wanted to thank a lot of people it”s happening again. I wanted to thank everybody at Showtime. I wanted to thank most of all Edie Falco. I wanted to thank David and Gary and Matt at Showtime. I wanted to thank Liz Brixius and Linda Wallem, Richie Jackson, andI wanted to thank Edie Falco very badly. It”s hard to do those [Sighs]. Sorry.”
When asked how she felt, Merritt confessed, “I dont know yet. I”m scared honestly. I”m scared. I”m scared because it was unexpected so I dont know how I feel yet. I mean I have therapy next week.”
