Emmys: Richard Jenkins Was More Impressed with Lady Gaga Than His Award

Stars can get star-struck too!

Liz Raftery

Stars, they really are just like us - meaning they sometimes get adorably flustered in front of their favorite celebrities.

Case in point: Richard Jenkins, who continued Olive Kitteridge's dominance at the Emmy Awards Sunday night with a win for Best Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie. But he was more impressed with his award presenter, Lady Gaga, than with the brass itself.

"That was Lady Gaga," an evidently star-struck Jenkins marveled, before giving his acceptance speech. (Cut to Gaga, blushing.)

"So Dad, what'd you do last night?" Jenkins quipped, shaking his head.

Do we think Jenkins is a bigger fan of ARTPOP or The Fame Monster?
