Merritt Wever Emmy Acceptance Speech: The Best of All Time

by at . Comments

If you don't know who actress Merritt Wever is, you will after seeing her Emmy Awards acceptance speech, which was easily the best in the show's history.

When Tina Fey and Amy Poehler announced that Wever won Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, many viewers were pretty surprised.

But that surprise paled in comparison to this amazing acceptance speech:

Host Neil Patrick Harris, after she exited stage right, summed it up best:

“Merritt Wever, best speech ever. Good luck to everyone else.”

Some may recognize her from Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Lena Dunham's first film Tiny Furniture, or as Schmidt’s sort-of girlfriend Elizabeth on New Girl.

But the 2013 Emmys honored Merritt for her work on Nurse Jackie as Zoey Barlow, the titular character’s best friend at work. For that, we congratulate her!

And encourage others to prepare speeches ahead of time.
