We're always a bit skeptical when celebs insist they "love each other." However, it seems like "Modern Family" stars Julie Bowen and Sofia Vergara really are super BFFs. Bowen even gave a shout out to her Colombia-born bestie while accepting her Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series.
Just how close are they? Bowen was in Mexico with Vergara and pals when she got engaged. Basically, Bowen can't say enough good things about her, though she will mock Vergara on the red carpet.
"She really doesn't get the credit she deserves as an actress. She certainly gets it as a celebrity, but as an actress, she really is talented and amazing," she told reporters backstage at the Emmys. "There's only a few of us, I think, who really understand that what she does is not just play herself. I love her, I really do."
Claire Danes might be the Emmy winner, but she's all about her co-stars. A pregnant Danes picked up the Best Actress in a Drama for her hit Showtime series "Homeland" and gave quite the unusual shout out to her co-star, veteran actor Mandy Patinkin.
"Mandy Patinkin, holla," she said as she closed her speech.
The audience cheered - or should we say "holla'd" in agreement.
"Oh, I am not in the kind of shape to do a bit with Jimmy Fallon, who is in very good shape. Son of a b***h! Free sandwich after 10. We were told we'd get a free sandwich after 10," he wheezed as he tried to catch his breath.
The most controversial part of his speech was his f-bomb, though censors quickly caught it before it went to air.
"We make topical comedy which has the shelf life of egg salad, so to do this for 15 years and have tangible proof that what we do isn't just ephemeral is wonderful," he said. "Years from now, when the earth is just a burning husk and aliens visit, we'll find a box of these and they will know just how predictable these f*****g shows were."
Never change, Jon!
Thought on the Show
The Emmys - save for these fun, unscripted moments - were pretty boring. Jimmy Kimmel was nowhere near as funny as we'd hoped and his "In Memoriam" bit with Josh Groban was a real head-scratcher. Sounds like Kimmel needs to stick to what he does best: Late night.
