Welcome back to the Emmys, Ben Affleck!
He and girlfriend Lindsay Shookus made the 2017 Emmys a (victorious) date night.
The 45-year-old Oscar-winning actor and his girlfriend, a 37-year-old producer at Saturday Night Live, did not walk the red carpet. They were spotted making their way into Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater via a side stage VIP entrance and then made their way to their seats, E! News has learned exclusively. Shookus led the way and Affleck took a deep breath as he followed right behind her. Affleck was later spotted walked into the VIP lounge alone, holding Shookus' clutch. She wore a black halter gown with a large thigh-high slit and had her hair styled in an updo.
