Marriage Proposal At The Emmys From Glenn Weiss

Marriage Proposal At The Emmys From Glenn Weiss

The 57-year-old took to the stage tonight at the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards 2018 in Microsoft Theater, Los Angeles.

As the audience gasped and then erupted in cheers, jumping up and down - some even teared up (hello, Claire Foy) - Weiss' girlfriend, Jan Svendsen, took the stage while he formally proposed. After thanking several people in his speech, he revealed that the honor came two weeks after the death of his mother. "Part of my heart is broken, I don't think it will ever be repaired, but she's in me and she always will be", he said.

The camera quickly panned to Svendsen who was visibly shaking as the audience cheered. After the crowd realized what was happening, she nodded yes.

"I didn't ask yet", Weiss said before inviting Svendsen onstage.

And it said North Korea is violating sanctions by transferring coal at sea and flouting an arms embargo and financial sanctions. It said some products allegedly were off-loaded from Russian ships, which were identified in the report.

"I'm gonna need a minute, Hamish", Weiss said, referring to Emmys director Hamish Hamilton.

"And to my sisters and brothers, I didn't swipe it, dad said it was OK", he added.

Svendsen quickly said yes in the unexpected moment during the show.
