Leslie Jones and accountants from Ernst & Young appear on stage at the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sept. 18, 2016 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. 

At the 2016 Emmys, awards show history was made -- the segment where the accountants address the audience was somehow made funny. 

Leslie Jones took the stage with three representatives from Ernst & Young, the accounting firm that protects the voting results until the envelopes get opened. After a few words from the suits, Jones took over.

"Y'all protecting something nobody is trying to steal," Jones said, addressing the Ernst & Young reps. "Don’t nobody want to know about boring Emmy secrets. But since you good at keeping things safe, I got a job for you: My Twitter account. Put that in the vault, please.

"Y'all using your skills to protect best voiceover on a French sitcom. Meanwhile I'm butt naked on CNN," Jones said, referring to the private photos that were leaked after her website was hacked. "I just wanted to feel beautiful y'all. Can a sister feel beautiful?"

Since Jones left the stage arm in arm with one of the Ernst & Young dudes, we can only assume the future of her online security is in better hands.
