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