You were backstage and went one on one with the big stars. Good morning, again. I did. Good morning to you, robin. I think everyone expects the big-name celebrities to win this award with cool confidence. I was surprised how shocked most of them were. Telling me they didn't remember their acceptance speeches. They were not sure where they were at that moment. And others saying it happened in slow motion. You quould see that emmy glow starting to settle in. This is the fourth time you guys have won.

It's nearly a "modern family" tradition. Winning best comedy and for the first time, "breaking bad" scored best drama and an emmy for supporting actress anna gunn. What was it like on stage? Amazing because I got the look down at bryan and aaron. They've been my family for the past six years. Reporter: Her breaking bad costars bryan cranston and aaron paul went home without emmys. Thanks conspiracy spicing up the ceremony. Did i? It was one of the more memorable moments. Well, crap. You can't take the boy out of the midwest. I want to thank my mom for not worrying about me. And for believing that I would be okay. Reporter: More than okay. The colbert report won emmys for variety series and variety series writing. Are we rolling? Yes. I'll keep it clean then. Or not. We can bleep it out. "Gma" known for its potty humor. Stephanopoulos loves to drop the "f" bomb. What are the plans for the evening? What do you got? What are you doing? You're a winner. Are you going celebrate? Am I ever. I was such a good boy last night. Reporter: But tonight, different story. Different story. Different story. Reporter: I think a lot of fun was had last night. Could possibly still be happening. Some of the celebrities were asking me, did I kiss my wife? Did I forget to thank my son? Michael douglas said he had something prepared and had it hidden in his suit. He didn't want to pull it out because he didn't want anyone to think he thought he was going win. It was a lot of fun. Everybody just all smiles. I had a blast, guys. Thanks very much. Let's get more from jess cagle. Our friend. She made the point about is p speeches. Some people didn't have speeches ready. There were some real upsets last night. That made the show, for me, really fun. It was the accidental upsets. The main one being bryan cranston lost to jeff daniels of "the newsroom." Which I like "the newsroom" but I'm not down with this one. I wanted bryan cranston to win. And aaron paul in the supporting category lost to bobby cannavale. If you haven't seen him in "boardwalk empire" he is amazing. It wasn't bad news for the "modern family" actors. To tony hale from "veep." And the adorable merritt wever from "nurse jackie."
