The surprises started early this year when the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star beat out Jamie Lee Curtis, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Gina Rodriguez and Lily Tomlin for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical TV Series.
"We almost didn't have a show!" Bloom explained, her eyes red from tears. "We made a pilot for another network and they rejected it. And we sent the pilot to every other network in Hollywood, and we got six rejections in one day, and we felt like crap. But we knew it was good!"
This is the first major award won by Bloom, who's best known for her online comedy videos such as her music video "F**k me, Ray Bradbury," which was nominated for a Hugo Award.
Bloom then ran through her long list of people she's thankful for-- and her rapid-fire delivery of the list of names spoke volumes about her comedy prowess.
Speaking with ET after her acceptance speech, Bloom revealed that she actually had a prepared speech in her hand that she "literally never looked at."
She also opened up about The CW, which was the one network that actually gave her show a chance, sharing, "The CW lets their creators create and it gives us the freedom and it just throws love at you. So I think The CW is fan-f**king-tastic as far as I'm concerned."
