"This is your Emmy," the TNT host told Taelor and Sydni Scott onstage.

TNT host Ernie Johnson paid tribute to the late Stuart Scott at Tuesday's Sports Emmy Awards ceremony.

Johnson, who hosts basketball coverage and the post-game show Inside the NBA for the network, won the prize for best studio host. While onstage for his acceptance speech, he gave the award to Scott's daughters, Taelor and Sydni Scott, Sporting News reports.

"This is your Emmy," Johnson told them.

Scott's daughters attended the 36th annual event to represent their father, who was honored for his contributions to the media.

Scott, a former SportsCenter anchor, died in January at age 49 after battling cancer.
