It’s not common for presenters to come back to the press room during the Primetime Emmys, but Tracy Morgan
was certainly welcome this afternoon by the corps.
The last time he was here during Emmys 2015 marked his first public appearance following his June 2014 automobile accident. He was the final presenter at that show and broke down before the press backstage, sharing his uphill battle with his physical comeback.
This year, Morgan was in great spirits.
Asked if this was in fact the most diverse Emmy show ever, the former Saturday Night Live
alum and two-time-Emmy nominee answered, “I would say ‘yeah’, I’ve been coming for a while and this is diverse. I’m glad they’re covering everyone now.”
“They’re putting to work all people; it’s all the unsung heroes, the grips and the crafts services,” said Morgan who stars in TBS
