Turns out the most impressive guest at the 2014 Emmys may have been a Brazilian blogger who operates under the name of a character from an classic film. (Several signs point to it being the secret identity of James Cimino, a reporter from São Paulo.)

Known as Margo Channing, the name of Bette Davis’s character in the Oscar-winning 1950 Best Picture All About Eve, probably-Cimino attended the Emmys and made it his personal mission to get selfies with as many stars as possible, both on the red carpet and in the Nokia Center.

Here he is with Lena Dunham.

And with Sarah Paulson.

He got a picture with Jon Snow himself, Kit Harington, though the Game of Thrones star may not have been aware of it.

Here he is with Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks, with whom he matched unintentionally

And with a junior member of the Mad Men cast, the most recent Bobby Draper, Mason Vale Cotton.

Cimino’s tenacity is impressive. He continued, getting pics on the red carpet with Felicity Huffman

Before moving into the theater, where his reign of selfies continued with Angela Bassett

And finally, Uzo Aduba.

Who knew Margo Channing would be the real star of the 2014 Emmys?
