Julianne Moore bagged an Emmy Award
on Sunday, and it was still bagged Monday morning – in the brown-paper variety – as she jetted out of Los Angeles through LAX.
The Emmy trophy is a winged woman holding an atom, the top of which could be seen poking out of the bag.
The actress, 51, who won for playing Sarah Palin
in Game Change
, carried her precious cargo in the simplest of carry-ons – surely giving the security guards a thrill as she put it through the metal detector.
Moore was dressed simply in a black top and grey jeans on Monday, a far cry from the stunning yellow dress
she wore to the awards show. – Tim Nudd
