Margo Martindale: Some things just take time

As if she didn't have our hearts already, Margo Martindale had fans at the first word of her Emmys acceptance speech.

The actress, who played Mags Bennett on FX's "Justified," snagged the award for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series, which was her first career Emmy nomination.

"Sometimes things just take time. But with time comes appreciation," Martindale told the audience.

The Twitter love poured in for the 60-year-old actress. "Community's" Yvette Nicole Brown showed her appreciation for Martindale's touching quote, and echoed the sentiment, calling her win "well-deserved."

Peter Dinklage also won following his first Emmy nomination, taking home the outstanding supporting actor in a drama series for his work on HBO's "Game of Thrones." Thanks the dog sitter, Kitty, for being on dog duty while he's out accepting the award. Cute!

    Incredible actress and great series. Wish they'd kept it up. Boyd should have won best actor!

    I watched Justified and she did a fantastic job bringing life to the indepth villian of the season. I am so glad she won, she so deserved it. Not only for this one portrayal but for all her years "paying her dues".

    So you folks are the perfect people to watch the Emmys, focus on who is wearing what gown instead of acting TALENT. Margo Martindale is TALENT. Look it up, her picture might be next to it. It is disappointing to know some people judge others by what they look like, not by what they contribute. What ignorance.
