What an amazing achievement – Baz and his Mammy have only gone and bagged themselves an International Emmy Award for ’50 Ways to Kill Your Mammy’.
Not content with a jaunt over to New York City and getting dolled up, Nancy went hell for leather to bring the award home, although she did a good job of hiding that steely determination behind the most mothering eyes in showbiz. This mother and son combo are quite literally flying the flag for Irish television makers everywhere, and we couldn’t be happier for them:

And Baz isn’t the only Irish man to pocket the giant golden statue in recent times, Chris O’Dowd picked up an International Emmy back in 2013 when he introduced the world to the Roscommon town of Boyle with Moone Boy. It’s all fun and games until you have to pay the extra baggage fees to get that statue home.
