Zachary Quinto Honors J.J. Abrams at International Emmys

Zachary Quinto is dapper while attending the 2013 International Emmy Awards held at the Hilton New York on Monday (November 25) in New York City.

The 36-year-old actor was seen posing with his Star Trek director J.J. Abrams, who was honored with the International Emmy Founders Award.

“I feel unworthy. Why would the Academy make this choice? Then it hit me. Back in 1993 my dad was in Cannes with the (future Intl. Emmy prexy and CEO) Bruce Paisner. I was suspicious about this connection. They were at a lunch and Bruce’s chair got caught and he fell into the sea,” J.J. shared during his acceptance speech.

He added, “I feel genuinely grateful (for this honor). It’s a privilege to work in the television medium.”
