QUICKQUOTE: STEVEN LEVITAN
“I’m a little bit in shock, to tell you the truth.” _ Steven Levitan, who won for directing, comedy, for “Modern Family”
STONESTREET WON BUT WHO ELSE WON?
Eric Stonestreet was the first Emmy winner of the night, and the first backstage at the trophy table, but the suspense was still killing him.
“Who won? Who won? Who won the next award?” the “Modern Family” star kept asking as he claimed his statuette for best supporting actor in a comedy.

ZOOEY NAILS IT
Zooey Deschanel played up her “adorkable” persona on the Emmy red carpet with a quirky, sparkly manicure featuring television sets on her thumbnails.

A photo of an (at)ZooeyDeschanel digit was retweeted 964 times and favorite 1,135 times as of this writing. They were the work of nail technician Tom Bachik (at)RedCarpetMan.
Glamour Fashion called it “the mani we’ve been waiting for!” The “New Girl” star, who was a presenter Sunday night, is famous for her red-carpet nail numbers.
