Earlier in the evening, while accepting her Oscar, Emerald told the audience, “So, the only speech I ever wrote was when I was 10, and I had a look to see if there’d be anything useful from it, but unfortunately, it mostly thanked Zack Morris from Saved by the Bell. He was my very supportive husband.”

She continued, “Unfortunately, he hasn’t been as much a part of my life as I’d hoped, and so that speech is not that useful.”
