Lily James reveals future of Pam & Tommy after Disney+ show loses at Emmys | The Sun

SHE came out on top in the wardrobe stakes thanks to her Versace dress, but Lily James lost out on a gong.

The Brit was in the running for Best Actress in a Limited Series, Movie or Anthology for her portrayal of Pamela Anderson in mini-series Pam & Tommy, but lost out to The Dropout’s Amanda Seyfried.

Now she has ruled out a return to the red swimsuit of Baywatch actress Pammy.

Asked about the prospect of reviving the role in a new series, Lily said backstage: “I don’t think so. I know the intention and why everyone came together to tell that story.

“It feels particular to the themes of that and we have achieved that as best we can and it is time for a new story.”

And when quizzed on what she wants to do instead, she added: “I love Indecent Proposal and A Perfect Murder. I would love to do something that’s sort of like a psychological thriller with a kind of sensual edge.

“But maybe I’d have to be like Demi Moore to get away with that, probably, or Sharon Stone.”

In the meantime, it sounds like she is just glad that the whole thing is over. She said on the red carpet: “I was so nervous on the way and I FaceTimed my mum, who was like, ‘Don’t worry darling, you have already won’.

“I am so overwhelmed and excited to be at the Emmys. It feels such an honour. I was so blown away to have been nominated.

“Whatever happens I have got a great dress.”

BRITISH actor Matthew MacFadyen paid tribute to his wife, Bodyguard actress Keeley Hawes, after collecting winning Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Tom Wambsgans in Succession.

With Keeley in the audience, he thanked producers and show bosses, before continuing: “Of course, to the most extremely talented and lovely crew and cast I can mention, I’m very lucky to have you, and my darling Keeley, I’m very lucky to have you too. Thank you.”

He spoke backstage about how the drama – which tells the story of the infighting family of a media mogul and has a fourth series expected next year – is one of his most fun jobs.

He said: “It means an awful lot to be in the show and to get his. It is very flattering. I really love the job. It does not feel like going to work.

“The scripts are so interesting and funny and full of stuff that I relish. There are some scenes which are quite daunting to play, but mostly it is good fun, especially throwing water bottles at Nicholas Braun.”

“It is really lovely and gratifying that people loved the show. It’s just a hoot.

“I tend to play a lot of buttoned-up Englishmen sometimes in period costume.

“So to play a Midwestern guy, who one critic described as a human grease stain, is really good fun and really good therapy as well.

“I get to do things which are really embarrassing in the safety of a set.”


THE man behind hit Sky Atlantic show Succession was slapped down after dissing King Charles III as he accepted the top prize of the Best Drama Series award.

 Jesse Armstrong said: “Big week for successions. New King in the UK.

“Uh, evidently a little more voting involved in our winning than Prince Charles.”

There was a muted reaction in the room and the show’s lead Brian Cox urged him: “Keep it royalist.”

 Jesse added: “We are incredibly grateful to have this honour. This group is extraordinary. It’s a team effort.”

Jen blooms after 30 years

JENNIFER COOLIDGE was just as entertaining in her acceptance speech as she is in her role after winning her first Emmy following a career of almost three decades.

The American, best known for playing Stifler’s Mom in American Pie in 1999 and Paulette in Legally Blonde in 2001, won a Supporting Actress prize for her part in The White Lotus. She walked on stage to the fitting song Finally, by Cece Peniston.

Jennifer joked on stage : “I just want to say I took a lavender bath tonight right before the show and it made me swell up inside my dress. I’m having a hard time speaking. But anyway, this is so thrilling. . . oh s**t, I didn’t think this was going to happen.”

She then pulled out a list of people she needed to thank. She carried on with her thank yous after music started meaning she needed to leave the stage, insisting: “No wait, this is a once-in-a-lifetime thing!”

ANDREW GARFIELD must have been feeling worse for wear when he walked the red carpet after a big booze-up the previous evening.

He was at the Motion Picture & Television Fund’s star-studded bash in Los Angeles on Sunday and was one of the last to leave in the early hours, alongside Alicia Vikander and Taron Egerton.

I can’t blame him for letting loose at the party, though, as it sounds like it was pretty amazing.

Rapper 50 CENT provided the entertainment and was joined on stage by guests including Snoop Dogg, Flo Rida and Jeremih.

Hair of the dog always works for me, so hopefully Andrew pulled through too.
