Meet the Director Who Just Proposed to His Girlfriend at the Emmys
We've come to expect the unexpected during award shows, but on Monday's Emmy Awards broadcast, the unexpected turned out to be something incredibly heartwarming. Glenn Weiss, the winner for directing a variety/special (for directing the 2018 Oscars broadcast), gave an acceptance speech that included shout-outs to his late mother and to his longtime girlfriend — touching but pretty standard stuff for award winners. But his acceptance soon took a turn for the adorable when he called his girlfriend, Jan Svendsen, up to the stage and proposed to her!
Unless you're a hardcore film buff, there's a pretty good chance you've never seen Svendsen or Weiss until Monday night, so get to know the couple behind the evening's most unexpected moment.
