Julianne Moore bagged an Emmy Award on Sunday, and it was still bagged Monday morning – in the brown-paper variety – as she jetted out of Los Angeles through LAX.
The Emmy trophy is a winged woman holding an atom, the top of which could be seen poking out of the bag.
The actress, 51, who won for playing Sarah Palin in Game Change, carried her precious cargo in the simplest of carry-ons – surely giving the security guards a thrill as she put it through the metal detector.

The official HBO Emmy After Party, held at the Pacific Design Center Sunday night, played host to many happy nominees, including lead actress in a drama series winner Claire Danes.

For some reason I started Emmy night worrying that Hugh Bonneville of PBS Masterpiece's Downton Abbey would win best actor in a drama, or that there'd be a Downton sweep. He gives a perfectly lovely performance, but it's essentially like watching Piers Morgan mellowed by a life of having valets brush his evening jacket.
But Damian Lewis won for Homeland, allowing my head to clear and track what I thought the Emmys got right and got wrong.
Got right: Homeland, Showtime.
Mad Men and Breaking Bad both had tremendous seasons, but neither was as brilliantly focused right out of the gate as this new political thriller. It was fitting, too, that the acting awards went to both Lewis and Claire Danes: They're a sort of Janus head – two faces, terrorist and counter-terrorist, each collapsing under the pressure of a duty to protect (hers) and destroy (his).
