Carol received the first ever Carol Burnett Award at the show and gave a moving speech.
“There’s one thing I want to address, which again I don’t normally do. I was reading some comments about the evening, and I saw a bunch of people posting that I didn’t stand up during Carol Burnett‘s speech. Are you crazy? Not only was I standing, I was bawling,” Kaley said. “You can better believe that I was standing and completely touched by her speech—a speech that I will never forget and that I will be able to tell my own children that I was in the room that day. And the words she spoke touched me to my core. So, I don’t know what show you were watching to go and tell me that I didn’t stand for Carol Burnett and how disappointed you were in me.”
“She’s one of my favorite people and has truly, like I said, paved the way for my career and a bunch of silly women like me who get to mess around and make jokes on camera and make fun of themselves because of what Carol Burnett did,” she continued. “So don’t come at me. I know what I was doing, and I was standing. With that being said it was a magical evening. I am so grateful for my husband and my glam squad and that our jobs give us nights like this. I’m ready to go to bed now and go to work tomorrow at The Big Bang.”
