Alex Borstein just won everyone over with her Emmys speech.

The actress just took home the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as Susie in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

During her speech, Borstein told a story about her family's history as immigrants and Holocaust survivors. 

"My grandmother turned to a guard... and she said 'what happens if I stepped out of line?'" she said. "And he said, 'I don't have the heart to shoot you, but somebody will.' And she stepped out of line. And for that I am here, and my children are here, so step out of line, ladies."

The speech had everyone emotional, from Jamie Lee Curtis to Kerry Washington and even Gretchen Carlson.
