Making his way through the Microsoft Theater lobby during a commercial break at the Emmys, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” star Tony Shalhoub could not contain his excitement about the recognition the Amazon series had already received only an hour into the Emmys broadcast on Monday.
“To have eight episodes elicit this much recognition is just amazing,” the Emmy nominee told The Times. “It was no surprise to me that Rachel, Alex and Amy would win big tonight. It’s such a joyous night.”
“Our good fortunes keep growing,” he added. “We did well at the Golden Globes. But the Emmys so far... this is big. I’m sure we’ll be celebrating at the Amazon party later tonight.”
While the rest of us were watching a commercial break during the Emmys, “GLOW” star Betty Gilpin roamed the crowded lobby.
“I need to find my brothers,” she told The Times as she passed, in the slightly panicked tone of someone overwhelmed by the unique brand of chaos that comes with the combination of red carpets, rope lines and awards shows.
“This is a lot,” she said. Just moments ago, Gilpin had lost out in the supporting actress in a comedy category. On her journey to find her siblings, Gilpin stopped to pose for selfies with a few admirers before stopping to chat with Tracey Ullman.
