The "Handmaid's Tale" star told reporters in a post-show press conference that the two F-bombs she dropped onstage were not on purpose.
"I was just trying to remember everybody, and you really do have a weird, out-of-body experience," she said. "It's always a surprise. It should be a surprise, otherwise you're an a--hole."
Moss, 35, has been nominated for eight individual Emmys in her career, and this was her first win. Playing a role in the female-driven Hulu drama was an honor, she said.
"It's my bread and butter. It's what I'm most interested in as a woman — shows that are about women. It's what I like to watch, and it's apparently quite obvious that it's what the audiences like to see," she said. "So for me to play this ... prolific character ... it's such an incredible honor."
