Another year, another star heading straight for the cheeseburgers at In-N-Out in Hollywood following a night at the Emmys. This time it was none other than food obsessive Aziz Ansari, who actually toted around his newly-won Emmy while making the burger run.

As People notes, Ansari is far from a novice when it comes to ordering up at restaurants. His hit Master of None is ostensibly a thinly-veiled food show that follows Ansari around from New York City eateries to the heart of pasta-loving Italy, showing off the comedian’s prowess when it comes to dining out. The Netflix series is so good, in fact, it netted Ansari and co-star Lena Waithe dual honors for outstanding writing in a comedy series. It’s Ansari’s second Emmy win, but likely the first time he’s brought the hardware to the burger spot.

Of course, the intersection of food and the Emmys has been important since basically day one. The annual governor’s ball is a who’s-who of entertainment elite downing champagne and small bites, while others have resorted to more inconspicuous eating to get through the long night — like Burt Bakman of Trudy’s Underground Barbecue sneaking in a package of freshly smoked pork ribs.
