Bates takes moment to remember Williams

Bates

Cradling her Emmy Award backstage, Kathy Bates recalled a night years ago when she won an award and wanted to call her mother with the news.

It was before cell phones and she needed a quarter for the backstage pay phone.

Robin Williams dug out a coin and urged her to make the call.

“I never forgot that kindness,” she said Monday after winning supporting actress in a miniseries or movie for “American Horror Story: Coven.”

Sarah Silverman’s winner’s remorse

Right when she got to the trophy table to collect her Emmy, Sarah Silverman realized she had forgotten to thank some very important people.

“Oh! I didn’t thank my parents!” she said, a wave of guilt spreading across her face.

Keeping it in the family

Just as Jessica Lange came backstage to claim her Emmy for lead actress in a miniseries for “American Horror Story: Coven,” series creator Ryan Murphy took the Nokia Theatre stage to accept an award for his television movie, “The Normal Heart.”

“ ‘The Normal Heart’ just won? Oh, great!” Lange said.

Maybe it should have gone to ...

Which performance had Emmy attendees on their feet?

That’d be the pawn shop spoof starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul that was filmed to build buzz for the Emmy Awards.

The commercial was among the clips shown inside the Nokia Theatre during a commercial break.

When it began playing, several audience members stopped in the aisles or stood up to watch.

No bathroom key needed

Andre Braugher didn’t really have to go.

After his jokey televised Q&A bit with Seth Meyers, the “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star walked down the aisle to an empty seat. The bathroom “key” he had said he was in need of was retrieved by a stagehand.

As for restroom facilities at the Nokia Theatre, no key is required.

The red carpet sister act

Sisters were where it’s at on the Emmy red carpet.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson came to the awards show with his sister, who stood dutifully in the background.

“She’s so shy,” he said.

Julianne Hough and her brother Derek finished each other’s sentences.

“I’m just here to protect the jewelry,” Derek joked.
