"I feel like I've suddenly been doing nudity since I turned 40. They're just boobs," she cracks after winning the statue for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special for HBO's "We Are Miracles." "Yeah, they're as low as they've ever been, but also as high as they'll ever be at this point. But yeah, it's a lot of fun."

Although "MoS" producers envisioned Silverman in the role of Helen, she really clinched her casting when she started dating star Michael Sheen, whom she sweetly thanked in her acceptance speech.

"The part of Helen was mentioned in the pilot, actually. According to [showrunner] Michelle Ashford, they've kind of always had me in mind," she says. "And then I started f***ing the star, and it really solidified it."

Silverman also addressed another big moment of her Monday night, when she showed off her pot to Giuliana Rancic during E!'s Emmys pre-show.

"I wasn't stoned," she clarifies. "I had pot for later in my purse. ... I mean, I don't drink. I like to have a puff as a treat at appropriate times."
