While walking the red carpet, the duo chatted with E! about Smart's nominations, which included acting nods for her work on Hacks and Mare of Easttown.

"Getting honored and nominated never gets old. I mean it's part of the fun and to be honored by your peers is the best," Smart says.

Speaking of his mother's nominations, Forrest says he's "very proud of her" and that she "really deserves" the awards as she "worked really hard for everything."

Sunday marked Smart's first awards ceremony since the death of her husband back in March. He was 71.

Prior to his death, Gilliland and Smart were slated to work together again this summer in a film directed by Tate Taylor.

While accepting her award Sunday for outstanding actress in a comedy series for her role on Hacks, Smart honored her late husband and praised her two children.

"Before I say anything I have to acknowledge my life husband Richard Gilliland, who passed away six months ago yesterday," she begins her speech. "I would not be here without him without his putting his career on the back burner so that I could take advantage of all the wonderful opportunities that I've had. And my two incredible unselfish children, Connor and Forrest."
