The Cast Of 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' Reveal Their Favorite Emojis

Emojis are the language of the Internet, so when we went to the Webby Awards on Monday night we had to ask some of the stars there about their favorite emojis.

There are more than 700 emojis on the iPhone, but those don't always express the fullest range of human emotion. Sometimes you have to invent your own.

The stars of the Netflix comedy "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," told us which emojis were their favorites and which ones they felt were missing. We have a feeling the titular character would be both obsessed with and confounded by emojis, but actor Ellie Kemper simply loves them.

"It's so weird how they look exactly like people," Kemper told The Huffington Post backstage at the Webby's. "I always do one to my husband that's like 'I'm sorry!'" she said. "It's like 'I messed up.'" Of course, we asked her to act it out:

The emoji she wishes existed

If Kemper could create an emoji, it would be one that means "hurry!" she says. Here's what it would look like:

That face would definitely make us step on the gas.

Tituss Burgess' favorite emoji

Tituss Burgess, who plays Titus Andromedon on "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," told HuffPost that his favorite emoji is the "praise hands."

"When something is so good, it's like 'hallelujah!'" he said. Here's his impression of that emoji:

When asked what emoji he wished existed, Burgess didn't hesitate for a second before saying "hair toss." There aren't enough emojis with attitude. Here's what that would look like:

We're looking forward to a second season of "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" next year.
