Winning!

Lindsay Shookus won an Emmy Monday night weeks after dumping Ben Affleck, smiling on stage with Lorne Michaels for the big honor.

Wearing a black spaghetti strap dress, Shookus hugged Kate McKinnon while heading up on stage when Saturday Night Live took home the award for Outstanding Variety/Sketch Series.

In 2017, Shookus’ date for the evening was Affleck, who hosted SNL a whopping five times.

She was also part of the winning SNL team in 2015.

The New York based producer and Affleck split up in the summer after his boozy relapse ended their relationship.

“When Ben drinks, he gets nasty and it’s hard to be around him,” a source previously told Radar. “He’s unmotivated and becomes very sloppy in his decision-making and his appearance.”

His spiral led Shookus, 38, to pack up her bags and leave him for good.

“His behavior was a big turn off to Lindsay, who prides herself on her work and her motivation for life,” the source continued.

Affleck hooked up with Playboy model Shauna Sexton after his split from Shookus.

He entered rehab at the end of the summer, driven there by his estranged wife, Jennifer Garner.
