Here's what Elisabeth Moss said to her mother during Emmy speech

Elisabeth Moss described her mother with a superlative that they can’t air on network TV.

The 35-year-old star, who won outstanding actress in a drama series at Sunday’s Emmys, had a portion of her speech bleeped out by CBS while she was thanking her mom for her years of support.

The segment was removed from the broadcast when Moss adoringly calling her mom a “f—ing bada–.”

“You are brave and strong and smart, and you have taught me that you can be kind and f—ing bada–,” Moss said in the speech.

‘Veep’ & ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ win at Emmys filled with Trump rebuke

Moss won the award for her performance in “The Handmaid’s Tale,” giving her the long-awaited first Emmy of her career. It was her ninth nomination.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus made Emmy history after she won Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series at the 2017 award show. The actress now holds the title for most wins by a performer for the same role; this is her sixth consecutive Emmy for "Veep."
