On the Emmys red carpet tonight a couple of Martin castmembers teased something big to come, and they weren’t kidding.
About 40 minutes into the broadcast, Fox – which aired the sitcom and tonight’s Emmys – brought in stars Martin Lawrence, Tisha Campbell, Tichina Arnold and Carl Anthony Payne II to present.

But first, the foursome did a bit that had Payne pretending he thought they were there to accept an Emmy, not present one. After the other cast members corrected him, Campbell said what many were thinking.
“Carl is not all the way wrong, you guys. I mean, we should have won an Emmy during our run,” she observed to big applause from the audience.
Lawrence then stepped forward to present the award for Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, which went to Jeremy Allen White.
Watch the moment above.
