The Captain Marvel star was honored during the 2020 Creative Arts Emmys on Thursday, Sept. 17, for her work as a producer on The Messy Truth VR Experience. The virtual reality series was named Outstanding Original Interactive Program at the virtual ceremony. Brie won the award alongside her boyfriend, Elijah Allan-Blitz—who was the director, producer and executive producer on the VR series—as well as producer and executive producer Van Jones.
After their first-ever Emmy win, Brie and Elijah took to social media to share their adorable reaction. "Oh my God!" the 30-year-old actress can be heard saying in the video clip as Elijah cheered. "Thank you so much!"
Elijah then gushed, "To the Television Academy, to everybody who supported this for so long." Brie also added, "We're so incredibly grateful, thank you. We hope this brings some momentum and life to this project so that we can bring this out to the world. So that we can equally distribute this technology and this incredible project that Elijah created with Van."
The Oscar winner captioned the cute video, "#TheMessyTruth Won an Emmy! My favorite part of this years Emmys? That we are safe at home. My second favorite part? Being barefoot. And last? #TheMessyTruth won, and so did empathy."
"Thank you to everyone who voted, we are brimming with excitement," she concluded her post, adding #emmywinner2020 @elijah_a.b @vanjones68.
Ahead of their Emmy win, Brie—who first sparked romance rumors with Elijah in 2019—shared a series of cozy photos with the director.
"Just two professional people who would love your support of our project 'The Messy Truth,'" she captioned the Instagram post. "More importantly, we would love your support in expanding our compassion for one another - whatever that looks like for you!"
