We know how lucky we are to get to make the exact show that we want exactly the way that we want to make it whether that’s making a Korean subway drama or blackmailing Congress over data brokers or staging an elaborate cabbage wedding.
We know how lucky we are,” John said during his acceptance speech. He also acknowledged the show’s impressive winning streak, joking: “[The sign] is saying stop now in big letters and I don’t know whether that’s about this speech or in general but either way, it’s a fair point.” Check out all the photos of John‘s win in the gallery below, as well as some pics of Seth Meyers, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel and Trevor Noah on the red carpet.Read more on justjared.com
