It’s official: Leslie Jones had the best night at the 2016 Emmy Awards. She didn’t take home a statuette but she got something better: a chance to meet everyone from Angela Bassett to Charo to the entire cast of ‘Game of Thrones!’ Click to see.
Leslie, 49, was literally living the best life on Sept. 18, as the star of Masterminds took pictures with every celeb at the awards ceremony. After kicking off he night by declaring Liev Schreiber, 48, as her “new crush,” Leslie went on to get a selfie with some of the biggest names in Hollywood.
“OMG I met the queen,” Leslie wrote when she posed Angela Bassett, 58. What, no shout out to Emmy-award winning Keegan-Michael Key, 45? Seems Leslie was too busy giving a hug to Courtney B. Vance, 56, to mention the Keanu star. No hard feelings!
After all, Leslie had a busy night ahead of her. She had to invade Westeros, as she posed with Emilia Clarke, 29, Kit Harington, 29, and Gwendoline Christie, 37. “She was stunning and tall. I was intimidated in the best way.” Considering that Leslie is 6’0 when she’s not in heels, to have her call someone “tall” is pretty amazing.
Leslie also ran into some major musical megastars, namely Charo, 65! Cuchi-Cuchi! Yet, from Leslie’s caption, she was feeling more of what John Mayer, 38, was playing that night. “He said [was] gonna write a song about me,” she said as she posed with him. “I think he should have sex with me instead. Am I wrong?”
Before that happens, she might want to talk with Mr Robot’s star hacker, Rami Malek, 35, and the accountants from Ernst & Young. During the Emmys, Leslie appeared on stage with three men trusted with securing and protecting the Emmy results. Leslie, a victim of a notorious hack that released her personal information (and nude photos), thought the men should protect her Twitter account instead.
Instead of keeping the winner of “Best Voice Over In A French Sitcom” a secret, she thinks they should prevent her from winding up “butt naked on CNN” again. Well, if the lawyers won’t save her from the trolls, maybe she can recruit the Queen of Dragons to put up a different kind of “firewall?”
