Leslie Jones walked onto the Emmy Awards stage Sunday night with Ernst & Young accountants, who she wants to put to work protecting her privacy.

Jones couldn’t help put point out to the Ernst & Young accountants on Emmy night that not too many people are trying to hack into the Emmy results. She suggested that they put their skills to use protecting things more susceptible to getting hacked – like her Twitter account.

“I really appreciate all the hard work that you do. But let’s be real: Y’all are protecting something that nobody is trying to steal. Don’t nobody want to know about boring Emmy secrets,” Jones deadpanned. “But since you’re good at keeping things safe, I’ve got a job for you: my Twitter account. Put that in the vault, please.”

Jones continued, “Y’all over here using your skills to protect best voiceover in a French sitcom. Meanwhile, I’m butt-naked on CNN. I just wanted to feel beautiful, y’all. Can a sister feel beautiful?” Jones asked the crowd to cheers and laughter.

When Jones wasn’t taking accountants to task, she was getting to meet the stars of her favorite show – Game of Thrones. During the night, the Saturday Night Live star got selfies with Emilia Clarke, Nicolaj Coster-Waldau, Sofie Turner, Kit Harington, Gwendoline Christie and showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

“Ok I seriously met everyone I watch in television it’s f–king cray. Now y’all know how much I love GOT! Well…,” Jones captioned a collage on Twitter.
