Keegan-Michael Key ’96g took home a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series for Key & Peele on Monday night. Key & Peele, which celebrated its final season in 2015, won over shows like Saturday Night Live and Portlandia, among others. Key accepted the award alongside co-star Jordan Peele.

This marks the first Emmy win for Key, whose show was nominated each of the last three years. Key & Peele won a Peabody Award in 2014.

Asked about the win, Key explained that he was so excited that he has “no sense” of what he or Peele said while accepting the award.
