Master of None wins Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series

Master of None wins Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series”

She gave her girlfriend a hug before accepting the award.

Aziz Ansari and Lena Waithe took home a well-deserved Emmy Sunday night for writing one of the most moving episodes of television this year: "Thanksgiving" from Master of None.

Lena accepted the golden trophy and took to the microphone overcome with emotion, repeating an incredulous "wow" before diving into her speech, thanking her family and friends for their support.

"I've got to thank God or else I wouldn't be standing here". Thank you Aziz for pushing me to co-write this, bro, now we're standing here, I love you forever. The episode was based on her own experiences coming out as a lesbian.

We've been huge fans of Netflix's Master of None for a while now, and Season 2 of the show topped the first!

"I see each and every one of you".

One of the awesome things about Waithe's acceptance speech, in addition to her unbelievable tuxedo jacket, was the fact that though Ansari was on stage with her, he didn't say a word, allowing his friend and colleague to have her incredible moment entirely to herself.

'And for everybody out there that showed us so much love for this episode, thank you for embracing a little Indian boy from SC and a little queer black girl from the South side of Chicago. "Every day you put on your cape, go out there and conquer the world, because the world would not be as lovely without you in it".

"I love you more than life itself", Waithe said to her girlfriend, while also thanking her mother for inspiring the "Thanksgiving" episode.

"I think it'll be pretty fly", she told Elle. "She's pretty fly. It'll be small and intimate honestly, but she's also like a black Audrey Hepburn, she's old school classic, and I know I have a bit more of a swaggier style, so we complement each other really well".

Before the gala, Waithe took to Instagram to share a childhood photograph in which she looks joyful. This is how I feel no matter what happens tonight.
