Christina Applegate got a big round of applause at the 75th Emmy Awards last night. She has been dealing with multiple sclerosis, and her struggle has touched fans worldwide. Despite her health challenges, she bravely appeared on stage with a cane to present two awards, with actor Anthony Anderson helping her.
The audience at the Peacock Theater in Los Angeles stood up to show their support as she made her way to the stage. It was an emotional moment for Applegate, who thanked everyone and mentioned feeling a bit embarrassed by the standing ovation.
Applegate, known for her roles in movies like Anchorman and TV series like Dead to Me, expressed her gratitude and humorously said that people don’t need to applaud every time she does something. She ended her speech by acknowledging that she might cry even more.
The positive response from the audience and viewers at home was heartwarming, with many praising Applegate for her strength and talent. Fans on social media shared their emotional reactions to the standing ovation, calling it a beautiful moment.

Applegate disclosed her multiple sclerosis diagnosis in 2021 and acknowledged last year that she might not be able to act on camera anymore due to the progressive nature of the disease. Despite the challenges, she expressed determination to continue working through voiceover roles to support her family and keep her mind active.
