Tina Fey continued her Emmys acceptance speech backstage at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards and thanked ... the pope. Yes, the pope.

In the Emmys.com video, below, Fey thanked her husband, Jeff Richmond, the children of her "30 Rock" staff and Pope Francis. "And I want to thank the pope for just being cool about some stuff."

"Some stuff" is likely referencing Pope Francis' views on homosexuality and abortion. Fey took home the award for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series for the "30 Rock" series finale, which she shared with Tracey Wigfield.
