I didn’t get to watch the 2013 Emmy Awards red carpet last night like I usually love to do but I did get a chance to watch a part of the actual awards which I hardly ever do. It was fun to see some of my favorite cast members from my favorite shows win awards. The Emmy’s seem to humble even the biggest stars and to startle and shock the bejesus out of unsuspecting ones too.
I am a big fan of Nursie Jackie and although Edie Falco is a great actress, for me Zoey (played by Merritt Wever) brings the show full circle by being somewhat of the comedic relief for an otherwise heavy topic of a functional drug addict who happens to be a nurse. Zoey is the super kooky, cute and somewhat naive city girl who looks up to no nonsense Nurse Jackie but also surprises us sometimes when she occasionally brings Jackie down to size with her unexpected voice of reason.
Last night Zoey I mean Merritt won for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy and there was no hiding the fact that she was completly shocked by the win. Here is her super cute and quite possibly the best acceptance speech ever:
Congratulations Merritt, well deserved!!!
