In a mostly ho-hum night at the Emmys, Glenn Weiss delivered a moment that left most of those in attendance slack-jawed and applauding.

He proposed to his girlfriend on live television after winning an Emmy.

The article goes on to state the following:

Mr. Weiss, who has now amassed more than a dozen Emmys, won for outstanding directing for a variety special for his work on the most recent Oscars. He’s a veteran of Hollywood-centric television events, having helmed events as varied as The Kennedy Center Honors and the Macy’s 4th of July Spectacular.

He started his speech paying tribute to his mother, whom he said had passed away two weeks ago.

He added: “Mom always believed in finding the sunshine in things and she adored my girlfriend Jan.”

Mr. Weiss was referring to Jan Svendsen, the chief creative officer at Charity Network, and continued, “Jan, you are the sunshine in my life. And mom was right, don’t ever let go of your sunshine. You wonder why I don’t like to call you my girlfriend? Because I want to call you my wife.”

Weiss went on to officially propose to Jan with a special ring worn by his mother. After the proposal, Twitter reacted. See the proposal below, then continue to the tweets.
