8 Things to Know About the Hunk Allison Janney Was Caught Kissing After Her Big Emmys Win!.

This year’s Emmy Awards included major victories for the HBO shows “Game of Thrones” and “Veep,” actor Jon Hamm of “Mad Men,” and actress Viola Davis, who became the first black actress to win the Emmy Award for best lead actress in a drama for her work on the ABC show “How to Get Away With Murder.” “The only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is opportunity,” Davis said during her acceptance speech. “You cannot win Emmys with roles that are simply not there.” Actor Jeffrey Tambor won the Emmy for best lead actor in a comedy for the Amazon show “Transparent,” while Julia Louis-Dreyfus of “Veep” won the award for best lead actress in a comedy. The 55-year-old Mom star showed up to the show with a hunk on her arm and even gave him a big ol’ kiss after winning the award, sending the Twitter-verse into a frenzy of wondering who the lucky guy could be!“It’s impossible to have done this show with this incredible cast, with these incredible people, these incredible writers, incredible crew, the network and studio who put this on. “I want to thank the people to whom I owe an incredible debt, people who in my life have gotten me here, families who have chosen for some reason to take me in and be nice to me along this strange, strange road.”

Well, E! did a little bit of digging and found out the dark-haired hottie is a 35-year-old production coordinator by the name of who actually worked with Janney a few years ago. 3. Martin, whose novels are the wellspring for the fondly nicknamed “GOT” and who turned 67 Sunday — the same age as the prime-time Emmys, but likely more venerated for his years. The British television shows received among the lowest number of major Emmy awards in a decade, failing to take home any prizes in the acting categories or for shows developed on home-grown channels. As illustrated once again Sunday, the Emmys dwell in the awards-presentation cellar, the least entertaining of a genre of questionable entertainment value to begin with.

—Impressive record set by “Game of Thrones”: One, with its 12 awards topping the single-season record of nine trophies set by “The West Wing” in 2000. Instead, it was left to the writers to keep the UK’s end up, with Armando Iannucci and Simon Blackwell bringing home the honours for their screenplays for US series Veep. Still, after almost ten years of going home empty-handed, the Emmys finally caught up to him. “It’s not my first time around the briar patch here,” Hamm told E! News backstage at the 2015 Emmys following his win. “I was not expecting anything other than to try and have a nice night and see some friends and hopefully some friends win and I would say ‘hooray’ but I got to say ‘hooray’ for me, so that was nice.” In fact, he was the only one of his fellow Mad Men nominees to go home with a statue, but that didn’t stop the room full of his peers—and the rest of the world watching—from standing up to cheer him on. He’s a small town guy: On his website, he notes that he was born and raised in Lowell, Mass., a town in the northeastern part of the state with a population of about 108,000. 5.

Since the 44-year-old was sitting in the front row directly in front of the stage, instead of walking to the set of stairs towards the side when his name was called, he walked right up to center stage, threw one leg up and flung his body onto the floor of the stage, gripping until he could get his whole body up. The results appear to echo warnings issued by the BBC in recent months, that it will struggle to keep up with major global broadcasters with its current model and levels of funding. He currently resides in Los Angeles: His LinkedIn account says he lives in Los Angeles and is working as a production coordinator for IATSE Local 871—a site that features news and history. It has just announced plans for a Netflix-style service in which US residents will be able to pay to binge-watch its best series in a bid to boost its international profile. Yes, a better host could have been found, but the problem was less his smirking acknowlegement of the weakness of the material he was forced to deliver than the jokes themselves.

Britain’s best hopes for 2015 had been carried by Wolf Hall, the critically-acclaimed adaptation of Hilary Mantel’s Booker-winning novels, which received three nominations for “outstanding limited series”, lead actor for Mark Rylance and supporting actor for Damian Lewis. Iannucci, who recently delivered the annual MacTaggart Lecture in support of the BBC, pointed out his own show Veep, broadcast on HBO, has British writer, directors, and post-production, while Game of Thrones is filmed near Belfast.

Each winner acknowledges the unlikelihood of winning against such strong competition before thanking a laundry list of people we don’t care to hear about. It would be great if some of TV’s many creative minds got together and figured out a way to make the Emmys an innovative show that matches the state of the medium today. The Emmys show is a known quantity that costs little to produce, takes minimal effort and still draws 10 million viewers even up against a top-level NFL matchup. And given that the Emmy voters all work in television, a series that spends gobs of money on location shoots, special effects and a giant cast must be particularly appealing. But then how does one explain the comedy-series win for “Veep,” a critics’ favorite that draws nowhere near the ratings of rival “Modern Family”?
