The 35-year-old comedian sat in the front row during the show with her boyfriend Ben Hanisch. She was nominated for two awards during the show – Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Variety Sketch Series for Inside Amy Schumer.
On the red carpet, Amy was asked to say who she was wearing and she provided more detail than host Giuliana Rancic probably expected to hear.
“I’m wearing Vivienne Westwood, Tom Ford shoes and an o.b. tampon,” she said.

Amy Schumer leans over to get a good view of the heckler in the audience during a show in Sweden on Wednesday (August 31).
The 35-year-old comedian posted a video on her Facebook account showing her kick the sexist heckler out of the venue after he kept asking her to show her “t-ts.”
“Don’t pretend you don’t speak English you just yelled, ‘Show us your t-ts,’” Amy said. “Now don’t get shy, what do you do for a living? Sales? How’s that working out? Is it going well because we ain’t buying it?”
“That’s really cute, but if you yell out again you’re going to be yelling ‘sow us your t-ts’ in the parking lot mother f–ker. I’ll show my t-ts when I want,” Amy added. When the guy indeed yelled it again, she had him thrown out!
Amy Schumer wears her hair in a side braid while arriving for an interview with Howard Stern on Tuesday morning (August 23) in New York City.
The 35-year-old comedian and actress opened up about attending the Met Gala back in May and why she thought it “felt like a punishment” to be there.
“It’s people doing an impression of having a conversation … I don’t like the farce,” she said about going to fancy parties. “We’re dressed up like a bunch of f—king a–holes.”
“I left, not the second I could. I left earlier than I should have been allowed,” Amy said. “I got to meet Beyonce, and she was like, ‘Is this your first Met Gala?’ and I was like, ‘It’s my last.’ I mean, I think I should be grateful that I was invited or something, but it felt like a punishment. It’s not me and I don’t like it.”
The Inside Amy Schumer creator previously tweeted that she was “saddened and disappointed” by the comments, but that Kurt does not currently work for her as her show is on hiatus.
“One of the reasons he’s such a great writer and such a great contributor to our television show is because his views are so different from those of mine and most of the other writers in the room,” Amy said in the interview.
“Kurt‘s my friend. I love him. I’m not on Facebook so I don’t read his crazy rants. Like, he just gets something from going after people, making them mad. That is not representative of me at all,” she continued. “And, you know, I’ve asked him, just, ‘Can you just stop because it comes back to me?’ Because he writes for the show, it’s a bigger story because of our connection, and so whatever tangent he’s gone off on I have not agreed with, and it’s been really upsetting to me seeing someone that I care about hurt themselves like this. Right now, there’s no plans for the TV show to come back anytime in the near future. So nobody’s on my staff. There are no writers. I think people, you know, they want his head. They want to burn him at the stake.”
“I would love to refocus the energy and the attention on the real problem,” Amy added. “He baits people. He’s the problem, no question, but the focus is on him rather than on what the real main problem is.”
