Amy Schumer Got Crazy Amazing and Real at the Emmys Backstage: Her 6 Best Q&A Answers
By Alex Ungerman
Amy Schumer may have overtaken BFF Jennifer Lawrence as our favorite person to answer questions backstage at an awards show.
The Emmy-winning comedian gave a press Q&A following her Outstanding Variety Sketch Series victory on Sunday night, where in characteristic Amy fashion, she got very real with the media. It may have only been six brief minutes, but it has convinced us all that we should probably just go ahead and give Amy an Emmy every single year.
Here are her six best, most insane answers from the night!
1. When a question was asked that we already knew the answer to.
"I think you know how I'll be celebrating tonight," said Amy to a reporter who asked how she planned to celebrate the Emmy. "I'm gonna blackout."
2. When she threw major shade at... photographers?
"I remember seeing you there," Amy said to a journalist she mistook for a photographer who mentioned seeing Amy's prank on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on the Time 100 red carpet in April. "Why are you allowed to talk, aren't you just the photographer?"
3. When she gave a shout-out to Amy Poehler and their amazing "We are Amy" moment.
"Presenting with Amy Poehler, she's the best," the Inside Amy Schumer star noted was a highlight of her night. "That I could stand there and talk sh** with her and Tina for a minute in a commercial break, I'm like, 'My life's a dream right now.'"
4. When asked if she planned to make out with Tina Fey, but had bigger plans.
"Honestly, anyone who's willing," joked Amy. "I brought my own lube. I don't know if that's something that interests anyone, but yeah, literally anyone."
