Tracy Morgan makes Emmys appearance

The 67th Primetime Emmy Awards were heavy on stacked categories and light on sticky moments. That is, right up until Tracy Morgan showed up to present the evening's final award for outstanding drama.

Morgan suffered a traumatic brain injury after a devastating car wreck in June of 2014 that killed comedian James McNair, and left Morgan in a coma for eight days. He's been in recovery and mostly out of the public eye since. Upon waking, he said from the stage, "I was ecstatic to learn that I wasn't the one who messed up." He then made a crack about finally starting to feel like his old self, which ultimately meant "a whole lot of young women gonna get pregnant at the after-party." It was good to see him back.


"Last year, Jimmy Kimmel said, we'd see you here next year, Tracy Morgan," said a tearful Morgan, who pulled off an infamously viral stunt with Kimmel at the 2012 ceremony. "Thanks to my doctors and my beautiful wife, I'm here standing on my own two feet. God bless all you for your love, prayers and positive thoughts for the past 15 months. I'm honored to be here at the Emmys."
