Emmy Winner Glenn Weiss Proposes to Girlfriend On Stage During Acceptance Speech

Emmy Winner Glenn Weiss Proposes to Girlfriend On Stage During Acceptance Speech

Making sure he wasn't played off by music during his acceptance speech was another thing Weiss had to keep in mind to make sure his plan succeeded, but at least his experience as an awards ceremony director was an advantage. But it was his 11th Emmy win that was the most special. But it's not exactly the moment viewers expect to be tearing up, gasping or pointedly texting their significant others, "That was so cute!"

"You wonder why I don't want to call you my girlfriend?" he said. But Weiss quipped he hadn't officially proposed yet! Her official answer was, of course, yes.

Backstage, Weiss told reporters that even with his experience, he couldn't plan a surprise like that.

Last night's 70th Primetime Emmy Awards were pretty run-of-the mill. Get the tissues ready! She was stunned and nodded her head "yes" from a distance.

Weiss, a producer and director of TV and live events, has won 11 Emmys and 6 Directors Guild of Amerca awards.

Glenn Weiss and Jan Svendsen kissed onstage. He directed the Tony Awards beginning in 2001 (the 55th Annual) through 2018.

The room erupted into cheers, before Weiss said: "I didn't ask yet!"

Svendsen was not the only person with Scarsdale roots on the show. So, getting engaged during the show is very special to them.

Despite his children's reactions, Weiss's fiancee is delighted, as is he. "It could have been October, November or the next two or three years".

The star turned to address his girlfriend Jan, as he explained how much his mum had adored her.

'He nailed it, ' she said.

According to her Facebook, Svedsen studied sociology at San Diego State University. Prior to working on Broadway, Svendsen was the Vice President at Ogilvy Advertising.

Broadway has known for years.

The Charity Network, which is supported by numerous celebrities, is an organization that supports several charities.

In her role at Charity Network, Svendsen continues to build strategic partnerships as she did during her time at the League.

Congrats to the happy couple!
