The 2022 Emmys had a Pete Davidson surprise up their sleeves.
Pete made an unannounced appearance at the 2022 Emmys on Sept. 12 to present the award for Outstanding Comedy Series to Ted Lasso.
It marked the first major event for Pete since splitting with Kim Kardashian on Aug. 5.
Ted Lasso won Comedy Series for the second consecutive year, beating out Abbott Elementary, Barry, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Hacks, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Only Murders In the Building and What We Do In the Shadows.

Before he opened the envelope, Pete gave a shout-out to Emmys host and former SNL co-star Kenan Thompson, saying, “The guy’s been in the zone for the past 30 years, just making us smile, nothing but net. He’s an absolute treasure and I’m honored to call him a friend.”
Pete then joked, “This is just like SNL because Kenan is doing all the work and I’m refusing to say what the writers want.”
It was a big night for Pete, who also got to celebrate Saturday Night Live‘s sixth consecutive win for Variety Sketch Series.
It will be the last opportunity for Pete to revel in a SNL win, however, as he announced his departure from the legendary sketch series in May, joining co-stars Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant and Kyle Mooney in leaving Saturday Night Live after its 47th season.
