The folks behind the scenes of your favorite TV shows got to collect their winged statues Saturday night at the Creative Arts Emmy ceremony in Los Angeles. And a few actors even heard their names called for guest roles.
Allison Janney won for guest actress in a drama for her work on Showtime's Masters of Sex, making sure to thank the bourbon she drank before her first sex scene.
Joe Morton, who plays Papa Pope on ABC'sScandal, took guest actor honors in a drama.
Jimmy Fallon got the comedy guest-actor trophy for last year's holiday episode of NBC's Saturday Night Live, though sadly the digital short he took part in, Twin Bed, lost out to the Tonys in the music-and-lyrics category.
