Wardrobe Malfunctions, Celebrity Chit-Chat and Sneak Exits

Stars—they're just like us. They mingle, they charge their cell phones in the bathroom and they love a glass of wine during a show. 

Such was the case Sunday night behind the scenes of the 2016 Emmy Awards, where television's most revered gathered for a chance to bring home one of those gilded winged statues once again. 

While binge-watching pros gathered on their sofas at home to find out if Julia Louis-Dreyfus would take home her fifth Emmy in a row (spoiler alert: she did) or if Veep would break Modern Family's winning streak (spoiler alert: it did), famous faces were busy filing into the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles (some just minutes before the broadcast began) to watch Jimmy Kimmel kicked off the show. 

Though we had the honor of watching Kimmel pass out PB&J sandwiches made by his doting mom to the A-list likes of Amy Schumer and Sofia Vergara, there were some shenanigans the cameras just couldn't catch—especially near the VIP lounge. 

Around the lounge, celebrities got caught up in some of the obligatory night-out tasks, like Game of Thrones's Emilia Clarke and Olivia Culpo who stole some time away in the bathroom to reapply lipstick and charge cell phones.

American Crime Story nominee David Schwimmer missed his chance to sit back in the audience after one of the commercial breaks, so instead he caught up with Stranger Things' Gaten Matarazzo, 14, and 12-year-old Millie Bobby Brown behind the scenes.

"He was very excited to talk to Millie," the source told E! News exclusively. "David very graciously said to them, 'You guys are really great.'" 

Director Ryan Murphy was equally excited to see Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon, who he bear-hugged upon spotting him outside of the theater. 

There was no shortage of public affection between couples, either. Bryan Cranston was spotted putting Band-Aids on his wife's knees during a commercial break. According to a source, it looked like she fell and hurt herself.  

Ben Hanisch kept his hand on girlfriend Amy Schumer's knee as they sat in the front row. "They seemed super into each other," a source told E! News. "She was leaning into him and they were talking intimately. There were so much happening around them, but they didn't seem to notice."

James Corden and his wife of four years, Julia Carey, were seen walking out of the VIP Lounge holding what looked like white wine while laughing joyfuly.
