Allison Janney, Jimmy Fallon and Joe Morton win guest actor Emmys

Allison Janney, Jimmy Fallon and Joe Morton won guest actor Emmy Awards on Saturday in Los Angeles.

Janney was excited to win her fifth Emmy Award, this time for her role as Margaret Scully on Showtime’s Masters of Sex, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She was quite exuberant and even jokingly thanked an unexpected source.

She gave her thanks to “the crew guy who got me a shot of bourbon before my first sex scene.” Backstage she noted her character “is closer to my personality than most characters I’ve played.”

Joe Morton won guest actor for his performance on ABC’s Scandal, USA Today. Fallon won for his hosting gig on Saturday Night Live.

The Tonight Show host previously lost at the Tonys for an SNL digital short.

Other winners so far on Saturday at the Creative Arts Emmys, which airs a week of the Primetime Emmy Awards, include Bob’s Burgers for animated program, Game of Thrones for special/visual effects and prosthetic makeup and True Detective for main title design.
