After his Emmys win on Sunday, comedian Patton Oswalt met press backstage and shared a touching sentiment he couldn't fit into the time allotted onstage.

Every bit of growth that I’ve had in my career especially in my writing and my performing came because I met Michelle McNamara. Because I met and married this woman who just was so much wiser and self-actualized and aware of life than I was. I had convinced myself that I was aware and self-actualized and mature but then I met the real deal...to have that ripped out of my life the way that it has this year — I’m not trying to say that this is meaningless, but everything seems like the lights have been turned down 50% on everything since she’s gone. It just going to be a long, long time before I can be the kind of person she made me again.
