Melissa, Martha Plimpton, Edie Falco, Tina Fey and Laura Linney joined Amy after their names were called and held hands as though they were at a Miss America pageant waiting to be crowned.

The audience went wild with applause and Rob said (via Radar Online), "I just wanna say, girls, everyone is a winner and I know you're gonna serve this body with distinction."

Melissa was crowned (literally) the Emmy winner for her role on Mike & Molly. The 41-year-old actress took the microphone and said, "Holy smokes! Wow, it’s my first and best pageant ever."
