Oh, what a magical moment; the night a famous couple takes the next big step in their relationship. In Ben Affleck and and Lindsay Shookus’ case, that would mean going from getting papped while jewelry shopping to joining each other in a giant venue filled with people whispering about seeing them in the wild for the first time. “Holy shit, Ben Affleck is here? Oh yeah, he’s dating what’s her name…Snooki-something.” Truly one for the scrapbook.
Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus had a reason to be at the Emmys last night. Lindsay works for Saturday Night Live, which may or may not have been where she and Ben first got together two or possibly more than two months ago. SNL won the Emmy for Outstanding Variety, Music, or Comedy Series. So now Ben can introduce himself as “Award-winning actor and director Ben Affleck and my award-winning producer girlfriend.” Come on, let’s not act like that’s something Ben wouldn’t do at a party.
Ben and Lindsay didn’t walk the red carpet at the Emmys last night (oh, suddenly they’re camera shy, huh?). But People magazine says they were seen together inside the theater. They were also seen backstage together.

And after the ceremony, they were seen together at HBO’s after-party.

Ben has a look about him that says he’s the type of boyfriend to get in about fifteen minutes at a party before coming up behind you with a mouth full of miniature quiches and announcing he’s “gonna split.” But he played it smart and stuck around for the ceremony and the after-party. Lindsay Shookus didn’t put in all that effort to look like a 90s Versace-wearing Cammy from Street Fighter to take pictures alone.
