Last year she revealed that she picked up her Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series without a bra, and this year, she joked that she wasn't wearing any underwear when she got on the stage at the 71st Primetime Award gala.

She dedicated her Emmy to her grandparents, immigrants and Holocaust survivors.

"To the strength of women, to Amy Sherman-Palladino, to every woman on the cast and crew, to my mother, to my grandmother, they are immigrants, they are holocaust survivors, she was in line to be shot and she said to a guard, 'what would happen if I stepped out of line'. He said, aI don't have the heart to shoot you but someone else will and she stepped out of line and for that I am here," she said, and ended with a shout-out "So step out of line, ladies".

Borstein was in contention for the trophy with Anna Chlumsky (aceVeep"), Sian Clifford ("Fleabag"), Olivia Colman ("Fleabag"), Betty Gilpin ("GLOW"), Sarah Goldberg ("Barry"), Marin Hinkle ("The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel") and Kate McKinnon ("Saturday Night Livea).
