Michelle Williams was reprimanded for being "late" to the Emmy Awards.
The 39-year-old actress arrived on the purple carpet at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theatre on Sunday holding hands with her best friend Busy Phillips, but event security were unimpressed by their arrival time.
According to People magazine, Busy and Michelle - who went on to scoop the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or a Movie for her role in 'Fosse/Verdon' - were stopped by security staff for being "late" but the former 'Busy Tonight' host said: "No, she's nominated. This is Michelle Williams! I think we should get her in her seat."
The pair were then waved through and Busy could be seen looking on proudly and growing emotional when her former 'Dawson's Creek' co-star delivered a passionate acceptance speech about gender equality.
Reflecting on the support she'd had on 'Fosse/Verdon', she said: "They understood that when you put value into a person, it empowers that person to get in touch with their own inherent value, and then where do they put that value? They put it into their work.
