Svendsen quickly said yes in the unexpected moment during the show. "Mom always believed in looking for the sunshine in things, and she loved my girlfriend Jan", he told the audience. "I have to say it's not a diamond ring but my mom's wedding ring, which to me is more valuable than the Hope Diamond", Weiss said.

Svendsen joined him onstage, and he presented her with a ring. The audience erupted into cheers and an astonished Svendsen made her way to the stage. "Saturday Night Live" actress Leslie Jones was caught on camera with her mouth agape and eyes wide in surprise.


While some on Twitter thought Weiss deserved another Emmy for his proposal, others thought he set a bar too high for future proposals.

It appeared that Weiss asked for a few extra minutes for his big proposal.

'Emmy marriage proposal is the night's biggest victor, ' added Lesley Goldberg.
