Glenn Weiss brought the audience to its feet when he made a decision to romantically propose to his girlfriend during his acceptance speech at the 2018 Primetime Emmy Awards on September 17. As the hundreds of celebrities cheered inside the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, many more were watching the touching moment on live television.

Glenn won the Emmy Award for the category Directing for a Variety Special for the Oscars and his speech got bittersweet when he started talking about his inspiring mother who passed away just two weeks ago. He also said that his mother loved his girlfriend, and that prompted the epic wedding proposal. "Because I want to call you my wife", Weiss said to applause.
