Think you know everything that happened during Monday night’s Emmy Awards? Think again. Here are five things you definitely didn’t see on TV.
On the way into the show
Even stars have to deal with bottle-necked entry points at the Emmys. We spotted Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys snaking their way through a clogged pathway just minutes before the show started. Stuck in the same situation, “GLOW” star Alison Brie made the best of it, taking selfies with fans. “Where’s Dave?” a male fan shouted, ostensibly meaning Brie’s husband, Dave Franco. “Out of town!” Brie replied.
Those stars trying to make the curtain call weren’t alone: We saw Darren Criss actually sprint down a long corridor – in his tux, no less – to make his seat in time for the opening monologue.
Sometimes a gal needs to ditch her shoes
Hey, long awards shows aren’t for everybody. After Laurie Metcalf took several “Roseanne” jokes on the chin during the opening monologue, she lost the best supporting actress race to “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s” Alex Borstein. But Metcalf didn’t seem too upset after the loss. She got to exit the awards show early with her daughter – and ditched her white heels while she was at it. We spotted the future “Conners” star slipping her stilettos off in the bar area.
Stars refueled mid-show
Hey, this is not a short show. The bar area (where everything from nachos to popcorn and Champagne was served) was in full swing during the ceremony, especially during commercial breaks. We spotted “Grown-ish” star Yara Shahidi buying a Wetzel’s pretzel for her younger brother mid-show and Netflix exec Ted Sarandos purchasing a hot dog toward the tail end.
This was the first year alcohol (including a $14 blood orange margarita) and assorted beverages were allowed inside the auditorium – to many attendees’ delight. And in the bathrooms, an extra perk: Stars could retouch their makeup with free L’Oreal mascara and lipstick. Not too shabby.
