Hugh Bonneville played host in more ways than one. The corduroy suited "Lord Grantham" emceed the evening but also gave his lap to Dave Boone at the post-presentation reception. "How badly do I want to be a butler on that show," said Boone, a double nominee for writing the Tonys and Golden Globes.
It was after 5:00 a.m. for Bonneville and "Downton Abbey" creator Julian Fellowes (right) who had just gotten off a plane from England ("with no bath," Fellowes' wife Emma Joy Kitchener added.)

"I love you so much I could gush for an hour...but I won't because everyone wants to get to the bar," Matt LeBlanc said of "Episodes'" Jeffrey Klarik and David Crane. At left, Bonneville looks on as LeBlanc's castmates huddled for the tribute.

"My transition from Warner Brothers to Legendary really hasn't impacted my role here at the Academy," Rosenblum told TheWRAP on Wednesday. "It's allowed me to continue doing what we're doing. We're having a good time at the Academy."

Moments after collecting his emmy backstage, Dan Bucatinsky's team said his cell phone was "blowing up." On any other Sunday afternoon, Bucatinsky told me he'd be at his six-year-old son Jonah's soccer game. "I'm putting on my emotional shinguards just to protect me from any potential good or bad news today," he said before the show.
Mark Burnett, who produced the 2011 primetime Emmys, and Roma Downey were just happy to be on the carpet as a couple. "I am not in a panic about whether the show is going to start on time," he told me on the way in. "I'm just hanging our with my wife, enjoying OUR nominations. We've always done this many times separately. It's the first time together for a project."
Michael Emerson and Carrie Preston illustrate the unsynchronized work of most Hollywood couples. While Carrie Preston (far right) was on her way to win for her work on "The Good Wife", her fellow CBS star husband Michael Emerson (still best known as Ben Linus on "Lost") played the role of bag-guy.
