Leah Remini just took home her second Emmy award for her three-season A&E series 'Scientology and the Aftermath,' this time for the special episode that ended the series last year.

What makes this award especially interesting is that it recognizes an episode that featured two of Danny Masterson's rape accusers, Chrissie Carnell Bixler and Bobette Riales, who are now suing Masterson and the Church of Scientology for harassment they say they've experienced since they came forward to the LAPD in 2016.

Awarded tonight in the Creative Arts portion of the Emmys which go out a week ahead of the prime time show, Leah had 30 seconds to say something, and Deadline reported that she said, "On behalf of my co-EP Mike Rinder, IPC, Amy, our brave contributors, we thank you the voting academy for honoring us with a second Emmy," she said. "It is especially touching to receive it in our final season. It's been a painful but meaningful ride."
