Tracy Morgan Makes Emmy Awards Appearance
LOS ANGELES —
Tracy Morgan has made a triumphant appearance on the Emmy Awards stage to present the evening’s most prestigious award.
Morgan suffered a traumatic brain injury after his limousine was struck by a Wal-Mart truck in June 2014.
Morgan stepped onstage and told the cheering crowd, “Thank you so much. I miss you guys so much.”
The comedian referenced words from Jimmy Kimmel, who told last year’s audience that Morgan would return.
Morgan said, “Well, Jimmy, thanks to my amazing doctors, the support of my family and my beautiful new wife, I’m here. Standing on my own two feet.”
After the serious moments, Morgan began cracking jokes again. He says after waking up from a coma, he was ecstatic to find out, “I wasn’t the one who messed up.”
Morgan concluded his presentation by announcing the best drama series award for HBO’s “Game of Thrones.”
