During the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards, Anika Noni Rose had the sweetest moment onstage with legendary actress Cicely Tyson.

While presenting the Outstanding Award for Limited Series, the 92-year-old struggled a bit to read her speech, likely from nerves and stage fright. But what happened next was beautiful.

While we don’t know what was said, we can only guess that Anika offered Cicely a few words of encouragement and for that we salute her patience and professionalism with our very own living legend.
