Guess who was the coolest actress at Emmy’s? Amy Schumer.

Shortly after winning an Emmy on Sunday for her Comedy Central sketch series, Amy Schumer spun into the backstage press tent like a cyclone of quips and comic energy.

Amy Schumer is the coolest person at the 65th Emmy Awards as she won an Emmy for Best Variety Sketch Series for `Inside Amy Schumer` and also got to meet her ultimate girl crush.The comedian is fresh off the Best Summer Ever—full of late-night talk show debauchery, a blockbuster movie and jet ski rides with Jennifer Lawrence. Peering into the crowd of tired reporters slumped over lap tops and half-empty soda cans, Schumer cracked, “First of all, the energy in here is amazing.” Like Jon Stewart moments before her, the comedian couldn’t help but poke fun at the press interrogating her—but she also interspersed her razor wit with genuine sincerity and gratitude for the latest milestone in her hallmark year. In your best Schumer impression, behold the 10 most genius highlights from Schumer’s visit backstage, with some light helpful context to set the mood. After charming TV audiences on the Emmys red carpet earlier that day, Schumer was asked what goes through her head while walking Hollywood’s crimson plank. “I usually disassociate, which is only available to you if you had a poor childhood,” the comedian cracked.

I’m not sure if that’s something that interests anyone,” she said in the press room, before noting how stoic a group of journalists looked while listening to her. “Has anyone in the front two rows ever had an orgasm?” she asked them. “It feels so good. Schumer was careful to note, however, that her memorable Kimye photobomb—when she fake-tripped in front of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West at the Time 100 event in April —was a conscious decision: “I attribute that moment to seeing these two people who are, you know, media moguls in their prime in their moment and wanting to do something to remind everyone that we’re all human and no one is more special than anyone else.” Schumer also spoke about finding strength in the women around her—“not just in my career [but in] my whole life. . .My best friends are female comics, and all my friends from high school, and my sister. . . I am lucky to be around a really strong supportive group of women.” Now that Schumer is on TV and in movies, the comedian also revealed that she finds strength in “every woman I walk past on the Upper West Side, from 13 years-old to 73, saying, ‘Keep going Amy’.

I feel very supported by women.” There was one woman with whom Schumer was especially thrilled to be hanging on Sunday. “Just to be presenting with Amy Poehler,” Schumer said. “She’s the best. But before that, it seems, she was able to tick off yet another bucket-list item in a year full of them—a portrait with the cast of Game of Thrones. I’m such a Hillary fan, it was amazing to be that close to someone who I’m hoping is our future president…and also humiliating because I was wearing giant red roller skates fearing I was going to lose my life at Rockefeller Center.” On sketch comedy: “We were very grateful that they gave sketch its own category. And of course, we have to give a slow clap for that awesome quip: “Tonight is about celebrating women in TV and letting the Internet weigh in on who looks the worst.” Preach, Amy(s).

We would be remiss if we didn’t mention the teeny tiny caveat that she did actually lose one teeny tiny award, but she lost to the Daily Show team so it doesn’t even count.
