Twould rather have money than her Emmy Award. The 38-year-old ac­tress, left, picked up the gong for Best Guest Ac­tress in a com­edy se­ries for her stint as a guest host on Satur­day Night Live dur­ing the glitzy award cer­e­mony last week, but has joked that while she ap­pre­ci­ates the ac­co­lade, she would rather have cash so she could “pay the rent”.

“I feel the same way I did when I wasn’t an Emmy win­ner,” she told E! News. “I don’t feel any dif­fer­ent. I’m wait­ing for the cheque, you know, ‘cause you know, when you win a tro­phy, when you’re like a NAS­CAR driver and stuff, you get like, flow­ers and a cheque, so I’m hop­ing that hap­pens.” “Ac­co­lades, what is that? Ac­co­lades don’t pay the rent. I gotta pay for my grandma’s nurses and stuff

. . . but it’s nice to have tro­phies. But it doesn’t mat­ter if you don’t have a roof to keep ‘em un­der, huh?”
