Emmys: 'Key and Peele' Wins Best Variety Sketch Series

Sunday's Emmy win came for the show's final season.

Comedy Central's Key and Peele won the Emmy for best variety sketch series on Sunday night. 

The show beat out IFC's Documentary Now!, Comedy Central's Drunk History, Comedy Central's Inside Amy Schumer, IFC's Portlandia and NBC's Saturday Night Live

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele accepted the award and thanked the series' writing staff, producers and crew, even down to "crafts services." 

Backstage, Peele shed light on Key's dance moves. "Keegan dances like that on the way to the bathroom so that wasn't as huge a moment as you think," he said with a laugh. 

Sunday's Emmy win came for the show's final season. "It’s a way to reveal hypocrisy and injustice in this world so there's a big piece of our voice that's missing without Key & Peele, but we're just honored that we got to share it with the world," Jordan Peele said.

The two are now working on separate projects, but were confident they would reunite on something in the future. "We definitely want to make movies together. We want to make movies apart from each other just because it makes it even better when we get back together," Peele said. "We will always come back and do things together."

Added Key: "We can't quit each other."

Jimmy Kimmel hosted the 2016 Primetime Emmy Awards, airing live on ABC from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
