Christina Applegate was the belle of the ball at the 75th Primetime Emmy Awards the night of Monday, January 15th when she appeared to present the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.

The 52-year-old actress has retired from acting amid her battle with multiple sclerosis, but was also a nominee in the Lead Actress in a Comedy Series category for her performance in the Netflix series Dead to Me.

While she didn't walk home with the Emmy (which went to Quinta Brunson of Abbott Elementary fame instead), she did earn the respect and admiration of the audience, who gave her a standing ovation when she first appeared on the stage. Relive the moment below...

And it seems like she came ready with the support of her nearest and dearest, including none other than her daughter Sadie Grace LeNoble.

The 12-year-old featured in a pre-show photoshoot with her famous mom in front of an ornate, branch-covered doorway in LA, also featuring the designer of her red velvet gown, Christian Siriano.

Sadie contrasted her mom's look with a sleek oversized black suit and a white button down, looking like a striking double of Christina with her long blonde locks, and even growing to be taller than her mom.

The Samantha Who? actress was brought to tears by the audience's warm reception to her appearance, and joked: "You are totally shaming me with disability with standing up," and as the applause continued, she further joked that her body was "not by Ozempic."

"We don't know what my future as an actress is going to be," she continued. "How can I handle it? How can I go onto a set and call the shots of what I need as far as my boundaries, physically? I don't know who is going to be as loving and understanding as this group of people were.

"I could see the excruciating pain I was in every day I was there and I didn’t want to relive it," she confessed. "I had to take it in little tiny doses but I think it is a beautiful piece of work. I'm so grateful to [creator/writer Liz Feldman] for seeing I had it in me."
