‘Mike & Molly’ star Melissa McCarthy was the surprise winner at last night’s Emmy Awards, taking Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy.

The nominees for the award — including Tina Fey and Amy Poehler — broke tradition by all appearing onstage together before the winner was announced like they were competing in a beauty pageant.

When McCarthy’s name was called, she was given a tiara and flowers by presenter Rob Lowe and the other nominees. “Wow, this is my first and best pageant ever,” McCarthy, who also starred in the hit summer movie ‘Bridesmaids,’ said. Watch this memorable moment below.
