Baz Ashmawy's Mammy Nancy Celebrated Their Emmy Win In True Irish Style

We've said it before and we'll say it again, what a lady.

It’s not every day you go up on stage in the US to collect an International Emmy, so Baz Ashmawy and his mammy Nancy would be forgiven for celebrating like mad things altogether after they bagged the Best Non-Scripted Entertainment award for 50 Ways To Kill Your Mammy this week.

While a massive, and rather fancy (we imagine) after-party kicked off after the show for all the award winners and guests, Irish mammy Nancy had a different way of celebrating altogether.

“Everyone else is at a fancy after-party and we’re at O’Lunneys [an Irish bar in New York], my mum is downstairs in an Irish bar eating chicken wings,” said Baz.

“We’re keeping it real.”

They may have been keeping it real once the big event was over, but Baz had previously revealed that his mammy got the shock of her life when the show was announced as winner.

“She put it very well,” he said. “She said as soon as they mentioned that 50 Ways To Kill Your Mammy was the one that won, she said she didn’t remember anything, that it was like floating.

“Then we went up onto the stage and said a few words.

“We also spoke to a crowd of very sophisticated television people from all around the world, and she nailed it.”
