In an interview with reporters on Monday, Seyfried revealed that her 5-year-old daughter, Nina, cried after hearing the news that her mother had won an Emmy for her work in The Dropout.
She says her child cried because she couldn’t figure out why her mother was calling her from the TV. It was time for her to go to bed. She goes to the classroom in the morning! To be honest I was surprised by this answer.
I need to talk to Nina when I get home, she continued. Monday night, Seyfried, 36, accepted her first Emmy from presenters Chris O’Donnell and Shemar Moore and said it felt great.
Seyfried took the stage to thank Television Academy, show creator Liz Meriweather and executive producer Michael Showalter for their role in making them a part of this incredible cast of performers.
Despite its difficulties, Seyfried described the experience as “the happiest time of my life.” Please extend my thanks to my agents for the past 16 years, Abby Bluestone, Scott, Morrie and Gary.
She went on to say that she really wanted to thank her family for their support. Hello buddy, you have to go to bed now, but I wanted to say thank you. She went on to express her gratitude to her mother, father, husband and children, as well as her canine companion Finn. I really appreciate it.
Seyfried gave the portrayal of Elizabeth Holmes in The Dropout. Holmes was a charismatic woman whose dreams led to her imprisonment for raising millions of dollars in venture capital on the promise of a breakthrough medical technology that didn’t actually exist. Seyfried played Elizabeth Holmes.
At the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, where the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards were held, NBC provided live coverage of the event.
