All moments from the
For all the Emmy-philes reading this, the following is a compilation of some moments viewers missed from backstage in the press room:
--Things got a bit awkward in the press area when it came time for Sarah Silverman, who had just won for writing on her HBO variety special "We Are Miracle." She was whisked into the press tent just as the
The mood was quickly lightened, for better or worse, when the topic of her liquid pot, which was revealed as an item in her clutch during the red carpet, was brought up.
"I had pot in my purse for later," she said. "It's legal and I don't drink! I like to have a puff as a treat at appropriate times." Is it a good luck charm, a reporter inquired: "Um, no."
--A new installment of

But maybe all the time before their release will help fans prepare for what's in store, with Moffat saying that what he has planned will top last season.
"We have a plan ... I do think our plan is devastating," Moffat told reporters. "I reduced the cast to tears by telling the plan. We're so excited about what we've got coming up. Honestly, I think we can [top last season]. I think we can."
--"Modern Family" star
After "Modern Family's" win in the comedy category, Vergara responded to the haters backstage. And, in her opinion, the joke was "absolutely the opposite" of objectification.

She added: "I'm actually looking forward to this season. I think it's going to be the most extraordinary that we've done. The potential is pretty extraordinary and if it can all come together and if we can keep on track I think it's going to be something really, really special."
--The following may shock you:
"I don't talk to [fans] much," he deadpanned. "I stay home. And I try to hide a lot. I'm not great at being a person who has fans. When you meet someone who is a big fan, it's a weird moment. It's strange."
--It was the kiss that generated laughs -- intentionally. When Julia Louis-Dreyfus accepted her shiny award for lead actress in a comedy -- her third consecutive win for her role in HBO's political satire
On her way to the stage later in the evening to accept her award, Louis-Dreyfus received another prize: an 11-second kiss from Cranston.
So, was it any good?
"You saw it on TV, you tell me," Louis-Dreyfus said backstage when fielding questions from the press. "It was pretty good, I think? He went for it. I appreciated that. He goes for it in everything he does."
-- "Breaking Bad" might have officially ended its goodbyes with last night's Emmy takeover, but don't think for one second
