Lindsay Shookus, Ben Affleck's new girlfriend, accepts Emmy for 'SNL' behind Lorne Michaels

Consider us shook.

Lindsay Shookus, the "Saturday Night Live" producer who became an overnight celebrity after she and Ben Affleck went public with their relationship, was front and center Sunday night at the Emmys -- and Affleck was quietly by her side.

Although they didn't pose together on the red carpet, Affleck was spotted escorting Shookus' inside the venue. A Twitter video shows the two making their way through the star-studded crowd.

Shookus stood just behind Lorne Michaels as he accepted the show's Emmy for Variety Sketch Series, wearing a black halter neck gown that cut out at the leg to reveal a metallic miniskirt. In other words, she was camera-ready -- perhaps in part because "SNL" was the clear favorite for the category! The producer wore her blonde hair swept back and finished the look with oversized earrings.
