Natasha picked the perfect man to accompany her to a perfect day

Natasha Lyonne joked about taking none other than James Bond, Sean Connery as her plus one to the upcoming Emmy Awards. The 40-year-old actress is up for the Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for Netflix series Russian Doll, which earned an whopping 13 nods at the nominations which were announced earlier this week.

Speaking about the honour, Natasha says that she was more than a little thrilled about all the praise and accreditation her show Russian Doll is getting. She says she has a maternal link to the show since she co-created the series, wrote three episodes and directed one. "It's like a little baby, and no one's more maternal than me," she smiled. "So, I feel a deep and pure warmth and a real true definition of gratitude and humility and all these very, very nice things. I mean, it's a big, nice thing to work so hard and see everybody work so hard and have it come together in such an affirming, celebratory way."

We hope she wins all the awards with James Bond on her side.
