Another Emmys is in the history books. People won! People lost! But forget the losers: They didn’t give speeches. Only the winners did. And what a night it was for memorable acceptance speeches: From Amy Schumer to Jon Hamm to Viola Davis to the very nervous guy who directed a Game of Thrones episode.

So we wanted to see just how memorable they were — by quizzing you! We’re going to give you quotes from 15 speeches, and you are to name who speeched each one. The Academy has agreed to give anyone who gets them all correct an honorary Emmy*.
