Oh, the revenge has begun, Jimmy Kimmel!
Emmy winner Quinta Brunson, who accepted her first Emmy on Monday as Kimmel played dead onstage below her, interrupted her monologue on ABC on Wednesday night by showing off her shiny new hardware.

Brunson recorded her appearance earlier in the day after she and her partner Abbott Elementary cast members met with the press to talk about the new season. During the panel, co-star Sheryl Lee Ralph indicated that she wasn’t too happy about Kimmel’s now-infamous stunt before Brunson accepted the Emmy from her.
For those who missed it, Will Arnett dragged Kimmel onto the stage before announcing Brunson as the winner for Best Writing in a Comedy.
I was absolutely confused,” she told reporters. “I didn’t know what was going on. I wish that man would get up off the ground. Then I realized that it was Jimmy Kimmel. Oh, the disrespect, Jimmy! But I am so I. I told him, too, to his face. He understood.”
