"I have been thinking about my speech since I was 12 years old," Ross told TV Guide at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. "I need to hone it down, because when I was 12 and I started writing the speech, I wasn't clear on what project I'd be receiving an award for. So it was more of just a general 'Thank you! For being here!'"
And how about after the show? Is she going to party?
"I have to tell you, I'm not a big celebrator," she said. "So I'll probably do what is like my dream favorite night: make a cocktail — which by the way, my cocktail? Lots of ice in a big glass, half water, half lemonade. And a straw." Get crazy, Tracee!
"I will have potato chips, my cocktail of lemonade and water, my DVR, my comfy PJs and I am like, celebrating," she said.
Honestly, the afterparty at Tracee's house sounds like the best one. Thanks but no thanks, Vanity Fair.
black-ish Season 4 premieres Tuesday, Oct. 3 at 9/8c on ABC.
