Transcript for 'Big Little Lies' star describes Emmy win as 'ultimate super power'
We are going to start with Lara. She's backstage with the emmys. Yes, George, so much to tell. Hollywood's elite out in force last night to celebrate what many are calling television's new golden age and the actual Emmy show was given a resounding two thumbs up by every single star we talked to for everything from Stephen Colbert's hosting to that spicer surprise to the abundance of incredible roles for women. Ladies ruling the stage at this year's emmys. Female dominated shows, "Big little lies" and "The handmaid's tale" both scoring five golden statues apiece. And backstage it was all about girl power. Looking at you guys walking out on that stage together, I was like yes. It was so fun. Feels like the ultimate superyou poor. How did it feel to be the boss. Feels good. The accumulated knowledge of us being in the business so long turned into something amazing and deep female friendship and getting to ask three amazing women to join us. Can you ask more? Can you guys do another seeing and just have more friends. Add more friends? Maybe. I mean, we can if we can get it to the level that we're satisfied with. I guess you've read it. You know what's coming. Uh-huh. Is it ridiculous. Uh-huh. How can it get more ridiculo ridiculous. I don't know but I hope so. Go home and count these. You have many. Reporter: The men of the hour. He's not even a regular cast member on "Snl" but Alec Baldwin earned his third Emmy for his portrayal of president trump joining us backstage with his first lady wife Hilario. Can you keep going with Donald Trump onsome. I think with lorn, yeah and with the free spare time I have -- To fill in for "Good morning America." I've done yoga with him before. Michael Strahan is good at yoga. Do you not know this. Reporter: Donald glover making history. I'm so happy, wow. Reporter: Taking home two emmys one as the first African-American to win directing for a comedy series. I like the accessories. It's not bad. Reporter: And another first, "Master of none" star Lena becoming the first African-American to win for writing. I remember watching Halle berry win. Sterling K. Brown taking home back-to-back emmys. Last year winning best supporting actor for playing Christopher Darden and this year for his outstanding role in "This is us." I want to thank my cast, you are the best white TV family that a brother has ever had. When you're in it, it's like you're going through a haze. You know what I'm saying -- I don't actually know what you're saying. You know twice. It's a wonderful experience. It's a 10. Is a 10. Great night. Kept hearing it over and over again that it seems like TV is the place to be right now and that last night was like a mini oscars with all of the movie actors in the audience who jumped over to the TV side to make great TV shows they're so proud of to give them more time than movies to explore a character. Guy, that is what I heard over and over again by the top actors in the business. And then, of course, there's the fashion. We haven't forgotten about the fashion. We're getting to that next.
