We have to thank Amy Schumer for treating us to one of the realest moments from the 2015 Emmy Awards.

On Sunday evening, the 34-year-old star accepted the trophy for her first Emmy win after Inside Amy Schumer beat out the competition for Best Variety Sketch Series. A visibly shaken (and excited!) Amy expressed gratitude for the comedic series' head writer and her family.

We almost teared up a little when she offered beautiful words of thanks for her sister Kim, crediting her as the "only reason I'm alive and breathing." If that wasn't authentic enough for you, Amy took a moment out to shout out her makeup artist.

"I'm so proud," she said. "This show fights for what we believe in. Thanks everybody... the girl who gave me this sort of a smoky eye. I really love it, and I wanna thank my family and Dan Powell. We created this show together."

That's right, Amy. Own your sexy — and your Emmy!

Before and during the ceremony, Amy was in rare form. Given it's her first Emmy win, this is probably a night she won't soon forget. Then again, that may have something to do with her plan to get blackout drunk — we're just sayin'...
