One of the highlights of the 75th Emmy Awards was when the cast of the hit 90s sitcom, “Martin,” reunited for some laughs and welcomed nostalgia.
Martin Lawrence, Tisha Campbell (who was looking good as earned income credit during tax season), Tichina Arnold, and Carl Payne gathered in Martin Payne’s living room where a photo of the late Tommy Ford sat on the coffee table.
Carl, in his Rent Em Spoons bucket hat, appeared to be confused and thought they were receiving an Emmy Award when they were actually presenting.
Tisha took the moment to point out how their show actually should have and deserved to win an Emmy Award.
Carl isn’t all the way wrong you guys. I mean we should have won an Emmy during our run.
But, we were never even nominated despite our 132 episodes, our huge ratings, and being in syndication so much that it’s a little hard for me to the 90s Spanks-less version of myself every night.
You know what I’m saying, right Tichina?
Tichina Arnold appeared confused as she stated, “No, I still look good.”
After Anthony Anderson joined to cast to reaffirm they weren’t receiving an Emmy, Martin Lawrence stepped out front to share a message of gratitude.
It’s all good, you know. I’m just excited to be here on the Emmy stage with this tremendous cast of the ‘Martin’ show.
He then went on to present the award for the Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.

Of course, social media was buzzing with reactions to the “Martin” reunion.

Can we get an honorary Emmy award for “Martin?”
The show is more than deserving for giving us top-tier comedy and classic TV moments that will be forever embedded in our culture.
