On-stage proposal shocks Emmys

Jan Svendsen and Glenn Weiss

Glenn Weiss brought the audience to its feet when he made a decision to romantically propose to his girlfriend during his acceptance speech at the 2018 Primetime Emmy Awards on September 17.

During tonight's Primetime Emmys ceremony, Glenn Weiss took home the Directing for Variety Special award, but what really has everyone talking is his speech. "Because I want to call you my wife".

At that point, the crowd burst into cheers.

As if there was any doubt, Svendson said yes.

The ring was the same ring his father had presented to his mother 67 years ago, Weiss explained to the crowd. "To my sisters and brothers, I didn't swipe it, dad knows I have it", he joked.

'Jan, I want to put this ring my mom wore on your finger in front of all these people, and my mom and your parents watching (from above)'.

"I haven't even asked yet!"

The audience gasped. Jan Svendsen looked shocked at the declaration - nearly as shocked as Leslie Jones, whose reaction was priceless.

Getting down on one knee, he asked: 'Will you marry me?'

Weiss, an American producer and director of television and live events, has won 11 Emmy Awards and 6 Directors Guild of America awards, for shows including Tony Awards, Kennedy Center Honors, and Academy Awards. But, if social media is any indication, that's exactly what happened.

Of course she said yes.

"The Emmy goes to Glenn Weiss for the Best Reality TV moment of 2018 and Best proposal", said another.
