Janney’s Emmy date has been identified as Philip Joncas, a 35-year-old Los Angeles-based production coordinator. Among his projects are TV show Extreme Chef, and features Nebraska and The Way Way Back, which, incidentally, starred Janney.
It’s unknown when Janney and Joncas first started dating, but the two have been walking red carpets together for months. They were photographed at the Minions premiere back in June, at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards earlier this month and at pre-Emmy parties.
During her acceptance speech – which was partially sung – Janney seemed to include Joncas in her thanks, sharing her gratitude for “mom and dad and Phil.”
Prior to launching a career in production in Hollywood, Joncas studied digital media at The Catholic University and Corcoran College of Art and Design, and received a degree in film from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. The Lowell, Mass., born Joncas, who was previously married to a woman named Amy von Walter, currently works as a production coordinator for IATSE Local 871 and does photography and painting on the side.
