Emmys 2015: Tracy Morgan welcomed at Emmys as he returns to TV after crash.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tracy Morgan made a triumphant return to the Emmy Awards on Sunday, telling TV’s biggest stars and power players that he had missed them after spending months recovering from a traumatic brain injury. Morgan’s presentation of the night’s final award was one of the ceremony’s biggest moments and the culmination of months of rehabilitation and work by the comedian. The comedian suffered broken bones as well as a serious brain injury in the June 2014 highway accident in New Jersey that left another passenger in the limousine van they were traveling in, comedian James “Jimmy Mack” McNair, dead. While Morgan was still not fully back to his bawdy, wisecracking self, he did tap his trademark humor on Sunday ahead of presenting the Emmy award for best drama series to “Game of Thrones.” “It’s only recently that I’ve started to feel like myself again, which means a whole lot of women, y’all gonna get pregnant at the after-party,” he quipped, receiving loud laughs from his peers.

Federal investigators determined the truck driver was fatigued at the time and they also faulted the comedian and others in the limo for not wearing seatbelts, which contributed to the severity of the injuries. Backstage, an emotional Morgan, with tears in his eyes, told reporters that being back on stage was “very overwhelming.” “Part of my therapy was seeing TV and seeing my friends and saying, One day I’ll be back,” he said. It’s been a long road to recovery for Morgan, who in a television interview earlier this year was seen wiping away tears and holding a black cane, saying he needed more time to heal.
