The lucky lady wasn't there to accept the award in person because she had just been reunited with her kids in London and couldn't make it back in time for the ceremony.

The competition in her category at the Creative Arts Emmys was stiff.

She was up against the likes of Kristin Chenoweth and Dot-Marie Jones, also from Glee, as well as Cloris Leachman (Raising Hope), Tina Fey (Saturday Night Live) and Elizabeth Banks (30 Rock).
