At the Emmy Awards, TV audience see all of the less-than-graceful reaction pictures and emotional acceptance speeches. But what took place clear of the cameras at the award display in Los Angeles Sunday evening? We sat inside of Microsoft Theater and noticed those 7 things that were not on the telecast:

1. There was once some ad-libbing

Yes, there is a teleprompter that host Stephen Colbert and the presenters learn from… maximum of the time. Colbert added a couple of strains in his opening monologue, together with one about President Trump (“Looking forward to the tweets”) and the HBO hacker ransom (“Too soon?”) that were not explicitly specified by his script.

2. Then there was once straight-up improvising

Dave Chappelle, who handed out an Emmy for route with Melissa McCarthy, joked from the level that he didn’t rehearse his Emmys presentation. Speaking extemporaneously, he commented to McCarthy that he was once “truly amazed (by) how many black people are here. I counted 11 on the monitor.”

That quantity 11? it was once in point of fact the selection of seconds the teleprompter had counted all the way down to at that time. McCarthy responded, “This is going exactly how we planned it to go.” Unsure of what to mention subsequent, Chappelle introduced, “Shout-out to D.C. public schools,” ahead of saying the nominees.

When the display breaks for business, attendees can watch the displays for acceptance speeches from winners of last week’s Creative Arts Emmys. They too can depart their seats, and head to the toilet or bar. Many nominees finish up spending a great deal of time in line for the bar, consuming and ingesting close to the bar and strolling round the concourse.

four. When cameras are not rolling, many stars are mingling

While many nominees accumulate in the foyer, others accumulate in the stands to shake fingers, say congratulations and take pictures. Some extraordinary superstar pairings on Sunday? Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown went as much as chat with Nicole Kidman and take a photograph. Better Call Saul‘s Jonathan Banks tells Susan Sarandon she’s “great.”

five. Winners are counted down from 45 seconds

It’s scary when winners are bring to a halt in the heart in their speeches, however a minimum of they have been warned: Most stars get a 45-second countdown from the time they take the mic, till the phrases “Wrap it up!” flash on the display screen and so they get performed off.

However, some stars (like Nicole Kidman) are not utterly bring to a halt after they run over. Others, (Like Sterling K. Brown) obviously had extra thank you to present ahead of track drowned them out.

6. Plenty of selfies are asked, however no longer all are granted

Like with any star-studded match, many lovers ask for selfies with skill. In the case of Modern Family‘s Rico Rodriguez and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend‘s Rachel Bloom, photograph requests are licensed cheerfully. As for Louis C.Okay., alternatively, he shooed a fan away.

7. The crowd had some main reactions that were not captured on digicam

One of the greatest target audience eruptions of the evening was once when Sean Spicer made a cameo at the get started of the Emmy Awards — the crowd was once so noisy, it was once laborious to listen to what Spicer stated. Another giant applause second took place with Modern Family‘s Lena Waithe and Aziz Ansari received an Emmy.

Another giant response in the crowd was once when the Big Little Lies solid celebrated Kidman’s win. Laura Dern, who was once wearing an Emmy she simply received, ran again to her seat (and relieved her seat filler) simply in time for her co-star’s giant second.
