The actress shared that she was speechless and thankful during her acceptance speech. “Wow. That is so exciting thank you so much. I’m really just so thankful, I’m almost speechless. I want to thank the people who allowed this to happen. Thank you to Jimmy Fallon, thanks to NBC.”

There’s no one like Keke Palmer.” In 2021, Palmer won her first Emmy for Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series for the Facebook Watch Series Turnt Up With The Taylors. 

Congratulations again to Keke Palmer.
