Jon Hamm and Game of Thrones may have come up big at the Emmys last night, but really anyone who hung around backstage was a winner. Folks with backstage access were treated to free McDonald’s French fries, which were served by waiters in tuxedos.
Celebrities—they eat fries just like us!
The fries were served as a part of a McDonald’s promotion for their new all-day breakfast menu. The free fries were served with dress-ruining tearable ketchup packets, but no spillage was reported.
Emmy winners, nominees and, presumably everyone else in attendance flocked to the fries, with Entertainment Weekly reporting that Larry Wilmore, host of Comedy Central’s The Nightly Show ate his fair share, while Emmy winner Amy Schumer took a victory photo in front of the McDonald’s catering counter. The woman knows her priorities.
Fries weren’t the only fast-food fare to make it to the Emmys. With so much hype surrounding McDonald’s new all-day breakfast, you know the Egg McMuffin had to make an appearance on the red carpet.
