Glenn Weiss won the Emmy for Outstanding Director for a Variety Special for The Oscars, but he won even bigger when he proposed to his girlfriend on stage mid-speech. "Part of my heart is broken, I don't think it will ever be repaired, but she's in me and she always will be", he said. You wonder why I don't like to call you my girlfriend?

Svendsen quickly said yes in the unexpected moment during the show.
