Jennifer Coolidge refuses to get played off at Emmys 2022


Jennifer Coolidge won her first Emmy on Monday night and her acceptance speech was worth the wait.

The “White Lotus” star won for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie and graced the stage in a tight green gown. The Television Academy played CeCe Peniston’s song “Finally” as she made her way onto the stage, possibly a joke that the 61-year-old finally scored her first Emmy after years in the biz.

“Hey, hi, gosh,” the actress known to many as “Stifler’s mom” said in her infamous husky voice.

Her speech was typical for an award winner until she shared a behind-the-scenes tidbit with the audience.

“I just want to say I took a lavender bath today right before the show and it made me swell up inside my dress and I’m having a hard time speaking,” Coolidge shared to the crowd’s delight.

She thanked the show’s producers and others at HBO as the music started to play her off.

“Wait, this is a once-in-a-lifetime thing,” she protested to the audience’s delight, thanking more people over the music.

“Wait, hold on,” she begged as the music changed to the more fun, up-tempo tune “Hit the Road Jack,” to which she shimmied at the microphone before finally exiting the stage.

Twitter loved it, too.

“Jennifer Coolidge deciding to dance when the #Emmys attempted to play her off is a truly perfect moment,” one user wrote.

“Jennifer Coolidge spending the last 10 seconds of her speech saying ‘wait, hold on’ and then dancing to “Hit the Road Jack”? Give it another Emmy,” another advocated.

Last month, Coolidge told Variety that her role in “American Pie” earned her more than just a paycheck.

“I got a lot of play at being a MILF and I got a lot of sexual action from ‘American Pie,’” she said. “There were so many benefits to doing that movie. I mean, there would be like 200 people that I would never have slept with.”

Coolidge will reprise her “White Lotus” role as Tanya McQuoid in the show’s upcoming Season 2.
