Emmy Awards is a big deal. It’s like the Oscars of the Television world. So when we heard reports of McDonalds floating around at the Emmy’s we were curious to as what it was.
To promote the launch of its upcoming all-day breakfast menu, McDonald’s set up shop backstage at the Emmys Sunday night. Every person who entered backstage as well as the prestigious award winners were given McDonald’s fries (and ketchup).
It wasn’t just normal fries. These “award-winning fries”were served by well dressed men in Tuxedos. What’s more is that the celebs loved it. Entertainment Weekly says that The Nightly Show host Larry Wilmore “took full advantage.”

The fries weren’t just backstage. Game of Thrones star Lena Headey gobbled one down before posing for the cameras.
