Following Tracy Morgan’s surprise Emmys appearance — his first at a Hollywood event since the horrific car accident which nearly cost him his life in 2014 — the comedian proudly showed off his scars while posing for pics after the show!
Tracy Morgan is truly an inspiration. The 46-year-old comedian, who is still recovering from his highway accident in June 2014, stepped on the Emmys stage on September 20 and immediately received a standing ovation. After the powerful moment, a brave Tracy lifted his shirt for photographers and revealed his large accident scars. See the pics and find out what the Emmys night meant to him!
“It means I’m home. The love and support that I’ve been shown by many of the people [in the Microsoft Theater] helped get me through the tough times. Speaking to people like Steve Martin and Lorne Michaels, people who were there, that meant a lot to me. It meant a lot to me,” Tracy told CNN after the Emmys.
It was such a bit night for Tarcy, but he said he was more excited than nervous. “I’ve been really, really excited about to doing this. I wasn’t nervous. Words take on meaning, so rather than say nervous, I’d say I was excited. Nervous is for people who can’t wait until it’s over; excited is for people who can’t wait for it to start. I couldn’t wait for it to start,” he explained.
In case you missed it, Tracy surprised everyone at the Emmys by being the last presenter of the night. Everyone in the crowd was so moved since it was his first Hollywood appearance since the terrible six-vehicle collision that left him in a coma and killed his friend James McNair.
