During a commercial break at the Emmys, comic and “Daily Show” alumni Hasan Minhaj and “black-ish” star Marcus Scribner took a lap around the Microsoft Theater lobby. Both couldn’t take two steps without being stopped for selfies.
But it was Kenya Barris, creator of the Emmy-nominated “black-ish,” who was in the highest spirits. The veteran writer, who recently announced he was taking his talents to Netflix ,said he was “so happy to be here.”
“And this year, I don’t give a [expletive], so I’m screaming [stuff] from my seat!”
There are still plenty of winners to be announced at the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, but as far as the fashion goes, the winners (and losers) have already been decided.

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.
