`GAME CHANGE’ FOR TOM HANKS
Tom Hanks shakes his hands, perhaps to get a good grip, as he prepares to select his take-home Emmy from the backstage trophy table.
“What do I do?” asks Hanks, who collected a trophy as one of the producers of “Game Change,” honored as best miniseries or made-for-TV movie at Sunday’s Emmys.
“Now what?” he asks after signing for the trophy. He’s directed to a bank of ready photographers.
“Come on Rita, get in here!” A fellow “Game Change” producer shouts to Hanks’ wife, Rita Wilson, as flashbulbs pop.
