"I brought my own lube."

Amy Schumer seemed like she was having a blast at the Emmys on Sunday. The comedian presented alongside Amy Poehler, made funny faces at the camera, joked with reporters backstage and most importantly, brought home an Emmy for Inside Amy Schumer for outstanding variety sketch series.

Here's a look at her 10 best moments:

10. Emmys prep

Schumer shared very special photographs of herself as she prepared for the awards show, giving fans a sneak peek at what she looked like.

9. Grabbing herself on the red carpet 

Schumer was funny and jovial on the red carpet, adding a light-heartedness to the black tie event.

8. "I weigh a buck fifty. Let's keep me low."

The person Schumer makes fun of the most on her show is herself, and at the Emmys it was no different. When talking to Ryan Seacrest about how she and Jennifer Lawrence wound up dancing on Billy Joel's piano during a concert, she said standing on it was not her idea: "I'm not trying to get to higher surfaces. I like things on the ground. I weigh a buck fifty. Let's keep me low."

7. Breaking the fourth wall

She was quick to throw a mockingly serious look at the camera when it came her way.

6. Game of Thrones photobomb

Schumer jumped into a picture with the Game of Thrones cast, lying dramatically on the floor in front of them after their big win.

5. Explaining her Kim Kardashian and Kanye West red-carpet fall

"What I attribute that moment to is seeing these two people who are mega-moguls in their prime in the moment and wanting to do something to remind people that we're all human and no one is more special than anyone else," she told reporters backstage.

4. Presenting with Amy Poehler

"Let's not forget what tonight is really about," said Schumer. "Celebrating hilarious women and letting the Internet weigh in on who looks worse."

3. Emotional acceptance speech

While Schumer is usually deadpan with her humor, she was overcome with emotion after Inside Amy Schumer won an Emmy for outstanding variety sketch series. "This show fights for what we believe in," said Schumer.

2. The Smoky Eye

Despite her happy tears, Schumer still made the audience laugh when she thanked her makeup artist during her speech. "Thanks everyone who has helped me, and the girl who gave me this sort of a smoky eye. I really love it." 

1. B.Y.O. Lube

Backstage Schumer was asked whom she would make out with this awards show. She had the perfect response: "Anyone who is willing. Literally anyone. I brought my own lube."
