Silverman won the award for Best Writing for a Variety Show for her HBO comedy special “Sarah Silverman: We are Miracles.” Upon being announced as the winner, she dashed up onto the stage barefoot and thanked her agents, saying, “Thank you to my Jews at CAA.”


Prior to Monday night’s ceremony, Silverman set the internet abuzz when she announced in an interview on the red carpet that she had brought with her a vaporizer with liquid pot.


Another Jewish winner was actress Julianna Margulies, who took home an Emmy for her role as Alicia Florrick on CBS’s “The Good Wife.” The win marked the third Emmy victory for Margulies, who previously won once for “ER” and once for “The Good Wife.”


An Emmy for Outstanding TV Movie was also awarded to the HBO movie “The Normal Heart,” based on the 1985 play by Larry Kramer, a Jewish writer and AIDS activist. Kramer’s screenplay lost to Noah Hawley for “Fargo.”
