The Emmys gave out a lot of sparkling trophies on Sunday, but as we all know, the real prize was getting a shout-out on Leslie Jones’ Twitter feed. Mr. Robot star Rami Malek was lucky in that he got to enjoy the best of both worlds. After winning Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his work as alienated hacker Elliot, Malek posed with Jones for a cute Twitter pic.

“Do you think he could help me catch hacker lmao,” Jones tweeted, her second humorous reference that night to the hack of her personal website a few weeks ago. 

Jones also met up with everyone from the Game of Thrones cast to Emmys host Jimmy Kimmel, making a pitch-perfect joke about each one.
