Tracy Morgan Makes Emotional Return at Emmy Awards 2015 (VIDEO)
Tracy Morgan made an emotional return to the spotlight at the Emmy Awards 2015, over a year after a tragic car accident left him in a week-long coma, and killed his good friend, comedian James McNair.
Tracy received a standing ovation after host Andy Samberg, himself an alum of Saturday Night Live, introduced the comedian. After a lengthy applause from the adoring audience, Tracy detailed his long road to recovery, and then fought back tears as he told the audience, “I miss you guys so much.” He also shouted out Jimmy Kimmel, who sent him a message at last year’s ceremony, saying, “We’ll see you back here next year, Tracy Morgan.” Kimmel’s prediction came true, as Tracy presented the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series. But before that, we got a hint of the old Tracy Morgan, as the comedian declared he’s back, which means “a whole lot of y’all women are going to get pregnant at the after party.” Hot damn, did we ever miss you, Tracy. It’s great to have you back. Watch the emotional video below:
This won’t be all we see of Tracy Morgan in the next month, as he’s scheduled to host SNL this season! I can’t wait!
