In a hilarious new spoof, the 43-year-old actress plays an acting coach named Ja,n (Just Act, Naturally) who teaches a master class on the right way to accept an Emmy award.

"I decided to start teaching an acting class on Emmy speeches because the most important part of any actor's career is the Emmy Awards acceptance speech," Ja,n explains.

"Hold it like you own it," she advises her class. "Like you've already owned it."

And the students love knowing that they're prepared for the future. "This class is incredible," one male student says. "All I have to do is book a role on TV, be nominated and win, and I'll be ready."
