Amy Schumer Photobombs the Cast of Game of Thrones Backstage at 2015 Emmys


Look out, Peter Dinklage!

On the heels of her first Emmy Award win for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series, Amy Schumer celebrated in typical fashion with some good 'ol backstage debauchery.

The cast of HBO's Game of Thrones posed for photos with their own statues for the press, and Schumer crept up on the unsuspecting stars for a soon-to-be viral photo. The multiple nominee had no qualms about getting her strapless gown by Zac Posen dirty as she laid on the floor for a sultry pose, surrounded by the likes of fellow winners Dinklage, Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner

The Trainwreck star tweeted the photo with the caption, "My real family." But, the true question still remains—which kingdom do you belong to, Amy? 

The moment was reminiscent of Schumer's first major photobombing prank at the Time 100 event in April when she threw herself face-first on the floor of the red carpet at the feet of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

"I attribute that moment to seeing these two people who are, you know, media moguls in their prime in their moment and wanting to do something to remind everyone that we're all human and no one is more special than anyone else," Schumer told members of the press tent.

All may be equal in Schumer's eyes, but she said she draws her greatest strength from the women who have supported her, "not just in my career [but in] my whole life," she told reporters. "My best friends are female comics, and all my friends from high school, and my sister...I am lucky to be around a really strong supportive group of women."

Through her burgeoning career, Schumer's loyal following of fans continues to multiply. She admitted Sunday that she's inspired by "every woman I walk past on the Upper West Side, from 13 years old to 73, saying, 'Keep going, Amy.' I feel very supported by women."

That list of supporters features some high-profile names, like Madonna, as well as co-presenter Amy Poehler.

"She's the best," Schumer gushed. "And [the fact] that I can stand there and talk shit with her in the commercial break and it's like a dream right now."

Another dream accomplished? Getting to roller-skate with presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on The Ellen DeGeneres Show

"It was very hot out and I was dressed like a plus-size Elsa from Frozen...I'm such a Hillary fan so it was amazing to be that close to someone I'm hoping is our future president, and also humiliating because I was wearing giant red roller skates fearing I would lose my life at Rockefeller center."

No matter politician or pop sensation, at the end of the night, Schumer was most excited to be with her sister and Emmy date, Kim Caramele, who is also a producer on Inside Amy Schumer.  

"When I won, I just thought, 'I can't wait to hug my sister,' and that was the first thing I did," Schumer said of Caramele, whom she also thanked in her acceptance speech for being the reason she is "alive and breathing."

Never one to miss a punchline, Schumer couldn't resist mixing her joy with a little ego. 

"I was sitting in a separate spot from the writers because I'm really famous, so it was exciting to see them all onstage and just be like, 'Wow, you're such a group of dirt bags.' And just, like, being so proud of everybody."
