He's back! Beloved comedian Tracy Morgan presented the award for Outstanding Drama Series at last night's Emmys, but first he delivered a wonderfully sincere, often funny speech that received a standing ovation—even Lorne Michaels, notoriously curmudgeonly Saturday Night Live producer, cracked a smile.

After the devastating car accident over a year ago that killed a close friend and left Morgan with a traumatic brain injury, the actor stayed out of the public eye, focusing on healing. But now, he's on the mend, and will even be returning to SNL in October. In his speech, he opened up about his recovery and how grateful he is for his new lease on life.
