Ooh, the payback has begun, Jimmy Kimmel!
Emmy winner Quinta Brunson — who took her first Emmy Monday while Kimmel played dead on stage below her — interrupted his monologue on TBEN Wednesday night by showing off her shiny new hardware.

Brunson recorded her appearance earlier in the day after she and her colleague Abbott Elementary cast members met with the press to talk about the new season. During the panel, co-star Sheryl Lee Ralph admitted that she wasn’t too happy with Kimmel’s now infamous stunt before Brunson accepted her Emmy.
For those who missed it, Will Arnett dragged Kimmel onto the stage before announcing Brunson as the winner for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy.
I was completely confused,” she told reporters. “I didn’t know what was going on. I just wish that guy got off the ground. Then I realized it was Jimmy Kimmel. Ooh, the lack of respect, Jimmy! But that’s just me. I told him to his face too. He understood.”
