The Cast of 'Modern Family'

It was a big night for Modern Family, which took home the Emmy for best comedy series for the second year in a row. The ensemble series also earned supporting actor and actress statuettes for Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen (who play husband and wife Phil and Claire Dunphy), plus writing and directing honors. Everyone behind Modern Family had reason to celebrate, including nominee Sofia Vergara, who was happy to see her costars take home the gold. “We won!!! Ganamoooooos!!!!!” the Colombian actress tweeted.

Padma Lakshmi and Betty White

They may not have been winners, but Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi and Hot in Cleveland's Betty White got some action at the Emmys red carpet. “I accidentally groped Betty White! Oops,” Lakshmi tweeted of the 89-year-old nominee.

Charlie Sheen and Ashton Kutcher

There were apparently no hard feelings between formerTwo and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen and his replacement, Ashton Kutcher, who were both Emmy presenters for the evening. “Giving the new kid a little advice..!” Sheen tweeted backstage.

Lea Michele

She may not have taken home an Emmy this year, but Glee star Lea Michele got close to the statuettes. After presenting outstanding directing for a variety, music or comedy series, Michele tweeted, “look what I found backstage.”

Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Melissa McCarthy, and Ellie Kemper

A very funny trio of gingers gathered on the Emmy red carpet. Modern Family nominee Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Mike & Molly’s surprise winner Melissa McCarthy, and The Office’s Ellie Kemper stopped to pose. “With my bridesmaids!!!!” Ferguson tweeted of the ladies who costarred in Bridesmaids, which is available on DVD on Tuesday.

John Stamos and Jimmy Fallon

Jimmy Fallon didn’t take home an Emmy, but he was all smiles onstage presenting with Jimmy Kimmel and later, joking backstage with John Stamos. The Glee guest star dazzled the audience while performing with Lonely Island, and then the fun continued. “@jimmyfallon you got some explaining to do- (and i want my gum back),” Stamos tweeted mysteriously.

Nina Dobrev and Jenna Ushkowitz

Could there be a crossover musical episode of The Vampire Diaries in the works? The blood-sucking show’s beautiful female lead, Nina Dobrev, snapped this photo with Glee star Jenna Ushkowitz. “Looking good lady!” Dobrev tweeted at Ushkowitz, who tweeted back, “You look amazing lady!!!”

Alan Cumming

The Good Wife’s Alan Cumming was nervous when it came time to announce his category: best supporting actor in a drama. Though he lost to Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage, he found a consolation prize. “I didn't win but I looove Peter dinklage! Now.... Vodka!!!” Cumming tweeted.

Minka Kelly, Annie Ilonzeh, and Rachael Taylor

Hello, Angels! The stars of ABC’s Charlie’s Angels reboot—Minka Kelly, Annie Ilonzeh, and Rachael Taylor—shared a limo to the ceremony on Sunday night. “Emmys!!!! Here we come!!! So excited!” Kelly tweeted. The trio presented alongside Drew Barrymore, who transformed the '70s series for her early 2000s film franchise, and “passed the torch” to the new angels.

Cory Monteith and Dianna Agron

Glee’s on-again-off-again couple Cory Monteith (Finn) and Dianna Agron (Quinn) stuck up their noses at the Emmys, where their show yielded few statuettes. But before the ceremony, Agron gave E!’s red-carpet host Ryan Seacrest some hints about Glee’s Season 3 premiere on Tuesday. “I'm a very bad girl … You know, hanging under the bleachers and acting like a skank,” she joked.

Gwyneth Paltrow

There’s a reason Gwyneth Paltrow was all smiles on her way to the Emmys. The Oscar-winning actress had already won for best guest actress in a comedy series for her recurring stint as Holly Holiday on Glee. @kmkeating and I rolling to the emmys,” Paltrow tweeted from the limo with her assistant Kevin Keating. 

Steve Levitan and Rex Lee

“In light of the Emmys, I signed with a new agent,” Modern Family cocreator Steve Levitan tweeted, alongside Rex Lee, who plays agent Ari Gold’s long-suffering assistant turned agent on Entourage.

David Spade and Kaley Cuoco

Rules of Engagement’s David Spade and his fellow CBS star Kaley Cuoco of The Big Bang Theory got close to Emmy gold backstage. “Me and @kaleycuoco seeing what an emmy looks like. It was our one chance,” Spade tweeted.

There was no rest for The Vampire Diaries Ian Somerhalder, who headed straight back to the show’s Atlanta set after the Emmys soirees wound down. “At LAX, redeye back to atlanta. And... We're off like an Emmy dress!” his costar and rumored girlfriend Nina Dobrev tweeted with this picture of a still suited-up Somerhalder.
