After paying tribute to his mother in this bittersweet moment of victory, Weiss shocked the world - and his girlfriend Jan Svendsen - by asking Svendsen to marry him.
"I'm gonna need a minute, Hamish", Weiss said, referring to Emmys director Hamish Hamilton.
The attractive moment took place at the ceremony on Monday night, after the director explained to the crowd that his mum had tragically passed away just two weeks earlier, then gave her engagement ring to his new fiancée.
Jones even took to Twitter after to say, "The man that's going to be with me is going to propose to me on the Emmys". Still, this guy must be really really sure of himself.
Excuse me, hold up, there was a LIVE PROPOSAL during this year's Emmy Awards. He directed the Tony Awards beginning in 2001 (the 55th Annual) through 2018.

If you look at the root cause of any problem, is one, around here, one death is a death too many . Trump then added that the high death toll was a result of Democrats trying to make him look bad.
"I didn't ask yet", Weiss said before inviting Svendsen onstage.
She said yes, and they hugged and kiss. "I'm still processing this". "Thank you for saying yes".
Just take a look at the video: Sterling K. Brown, who presented Weiss with his award, gasped in delight when the victor revealed that the ring he was presenting to Svendsen was his recently deceased mother's.
"To me it's more valuable than the Hope diamond". "It's very precious to me".
It's the sweetest thing you'll see all week. "It was such a valuable thing sitting right here and now it's where it belongs".
