Why Merritt Wever didn't give an Emmy speech

In a moment that drew gasps of surprise in the Emmy press room, Nurse Jackie‘s Merritt Wever basically gave a non-speech when accepting her award for best supporting comedy actress.

“Oh, my God,”¬†Wever said. “Thank you. Thanks so much. Thank you so much. I’ve got to go. Bye.”

Quipped host Neil Patrick Harris: “Merritt Wever, best speech ever.”

Backstage in front of the press, Wever thanked Showtime and co-star Edie Falco, but said she was super nervous and didn’t expect to win.

“It’s hard to do those,” she says. “I’m scared. I’m scared. It was unexpected. I don’t know how to feel yet. I mean, I have therapy next week.”
