Even though Sesame Street won a few Emmy Awards this week, that wasn’t the highlight of the evening.  That honor goes to the great Sonia Manzano, who accepted a Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s Daytime Emmys.

Below, you can watch the entire presentation, which includes some extremely kind words from Rita Moreno, Mario Lopez, Elmo, and Rosita, as well as a great retrospective of Maria on Sesame Street, and Sonia Manzano’s acceptance speech.  You’ll also see some familiar faces in the audience!

Sonia’s portion of the awards show begins at the 50:30 mark below.

Many, many congratulations to Sonia Manzano for this wonderful and well-deserved achievement!
