The agent remained unthanked. So did the family, and actually everyone else, when Merritt Wever won best supporting actress in a comedy series.
In fact, Wever, of Showtime's "Nurse Jackie," spoke so briefly that we can report the entire thing here: "Thank you so very much," she said. "Um, I gotta go, bye."
Wever said backstage she made a quick exit when she realized she was about to cry. She added she wished she had given a shout out to her show's star, Edie Falco.
Still, her brief words were a hit with the Emmy audience — and the show's host, Neil Patrick Harris.
"Merritt Wever, best speech ever," Harris noted.
Was it the shortest speech of the night, if not Emmy history? The race is on.
