50 Ways To Win An Emmy! Baz and his mammy scoop a MAJOR award

Congrats are in order for Baz Ashmawy and his mammy Nancy this morning, as they've just bagged a major award in the US.

The pair were in  New York last night for the International Emmy Awards, where they walked away with a gong for Baz's show, 50 Ways To Kill Your Mammy.

And there was no winner more chilled than Nancy, who looked VERY at home holding that golden statuette.

The Sky One show, which has a second season kicking off soon, sees Baz and Nancy trying out a variety of extreme sports, from skydiving to swimming with crocodiles.

Baz confirmed the news via Twitter earlier this morning from New York, saying he was "touched" and that his Mam was "so happy."

Despite the big win, Baz admitted recently that it took a while for US viewers to grasp his particular brand of Irish humour.

"In the States there was a lot of backlash in the beginning because they don't have the same understanding of sarcasm or irony that we have, they thought I was actually trying to kill my mother,” he told RTÉ.

"When I was making Mammy I wanted to make something that was funny and was fresh and something that made people feel a bit sentimental about their family.

"I wasn't making it for awards or to sell or any of that stuff, but it's an amazing nod".

As for Nancy, Baz admitted his mum was chuffed to have a glitzy night in New York after being put through her paces on the show.

"She's got to do all of these amazing things and now she's going to get her glad rags on and have a very glitzy night in The Hilton. It's brilliant and amazing," he said.

We're delighted for the pair!
