Question of the Day
WE’RE OUT OF HERE!
Tina Fey was the first celebrity out of her seat after “Modern Family” won the last Emmy of the night and Jimmy Kimmel threatened to continue the show for another hour.
The “30 Rock” star and several others bolted for the doors closest to the stage, the most direct route to the posh Governors Ball across the street at the LA Convention Center.
Those not invited to the lavish after party had to exit through the back doors.
There was an alternate third route, however, for the last winner of the night.
That’s the one the “Modern Family” crew used, winding their way through the pressroom, past the backstage area and into an elevator that held most of them.
“I’m going to latch onto one `Modern Family’ person for the rest of the night,” said the show’s kid star, Nolan Gould, as he was the last to make it in.

`GAME CHANGE’ FOR TOM HANKS
Tom Hanks shakes his hands, perhaps to get a good grip, as he prepares to select his take-home Emmy from the backstage trophy table.
“What do I do?” asks Hanks, who collected a trophy as one of the producers of “Game Change,” honored as best miniseries or made-for-TV movie at Sunday’s Emmys.
“Now what?” he asks after signing for the trophy. He’s directed to a bank of ready photographers.
“Come on Rita, get in here!” A fellow “Game Change” producer shouts to Hanks’ wife, Rita Wilson, as flashbulbs pop.
