”I’m almost speechless,” a surprise Palmer said in her acceptance speech.
Keke Palmer becomes the first black woman to win the Emmy for Outstanding Host For A Game Show. She cohost Password alongside Jimmy Fallon, which airs on NBC.
Palmer beat out Family Feud’s Steve Harvey, Jeopardy’s Ken Jennings and Mayim Bialik, and Pat Sajak of Wheel of Fortune.
Palmer thanked cohost Jimmy Fallon and Carol Burnett, who was in the audience during this milestone moment.
This is the second Emmy for the 30 year old. She won her first Emmy in 2021 for Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series with her Facebook Watch series, Turnt Up With The Taylors.
