Allison Janney may have made history at the 2015 Emmys, but people are talking about an entirely different trophy.
The 55-year-old actress took her boyfriend Philip Joncas, 35, to the esteemed television awards ceremony last Sunday, and immediately turned heads with their open displays of affection throughout the evening.

Janney received the honor for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role on the CBS hit show, Mom. Her 7th Emmy, she is currently the third most honored star in the history of the organization. In last year’s ceremonies, Joncas was also by her side when she received the same award. One of the most memorable moments of the evening was when Joncas unabashedly put his arm around Janney and planted a loving kiss on her lips when the presenter announced her name.
Janney looked amazing in her body tight, backless, embroidered Labourjoisie gown, which perfectly showed off her toned figure. She credited Joncas for keeping her in shape. “I’ve been doing the Pilates, and I have three dogs that I hike with and a boyfriend who loves to work out so that helps,” Janney said backstage. Janney and Joncas, who have been going out for a year now, have been captured several times holding hands, kissing, and snuggling. The cameras caught Joncas sweetly kissing her on the cheek at the Critics’ Choice Television Awards last June. After the awards, Janney also tweeted a picture of them standing outside the Staples Center, which is next to the Microsoft Theater, where the Emmys were held. The barefoot Janney had her stilettos in her hands while Joncas carried a McDonald’s paper bag.

“Such a great night! So grateful for #Emmy #7!!!!!!! Now if we could just find a ride home!” Janney wrote.
In her speech, Allison Janney expressed how she felt humbled by all the professional accolades. On the other hand, she doesn’t seem to mind showing her adoration for her hunky boyfriend as well as being the receiving end of his affection.
