Merritt Weaver plays the quirky Zoey Barkow on Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie,” and she was finally recognized for her strong performance by winning a statuette at the 2013 Emmy Awards on Sunday night.

Despite the moment being one of her most proud moments, Weaver found a way to inject some of her quirky on-screen behavior into her real-life on stage moment.

In short, Merritt Weaver might win an award for the shortest Emmy speech in history.

After winning the award for Best Supporting Actress in a comedy series, Weaver was congratulated by her co-star Edie Falco.

Once Weaver hit the stage, she could only muster the following.

“Thanks so much,” said Weaver, pulling out a card so that she could give her thanks to others in her life.

“Um,” continued Weaver. “Thank you so much.”

Weaver then looked down at her card one more time before looking up at the audience.

“Um…I gotta go. Bye.”

Weaver then exited the stage to her right.

It was a bizarre moment, and we’re not quite sure if Weaver got stage fright, or if she was trying to be self-deprecating.
