Glenn won the Emmy Award for the category Directing for a Variety Special for the Oscars and his speech got bittersweet when he started talking about his inspiring mother who passed away just two weeks ago.

"Jan, I want to put this ring that my mom wore on your finger", he said before getting down on one knee and asking, "Will you marry me?"

'You wonder why I don't like to call you my girlfriend?

Glenn Weiss won best directing for a variety special for the Oscars at the 2018 Emmy Awards, but his winning streak didn't stop there. "And to my sisters and brothers: I didn't swipe it, Dad knows I have it, OK?" "First of all, the man who's going to be with me, is going to propose to me on the Emmys", she said.
