Last night’s Emmys garnered about 1 million tweets. And there were some gems. Here are a few of our favorites from celebrities, comedians and other influencers. And we threw in a couple of Instagram pics for fun.

seth myers

You weren’t the only one who missed the after-party last night. Seth Myers had to skip it. Why? He’s got a show to run.

Heidi Klum

How does Heidi Klum manage to look this good eating popcorn? She even matches.

OK, scratch that. The “Modern Family” star looks great as well. We love that Sofia Vergara refers to popcorn as “contraband.” Don’t they feed people at these award shows?

Comedian and Emmy-winner Amy Schumer is looking mighty comfortable with her “real family.”

HBO’s “Olive Kitteridge” killed it at the awards with 6 wins out of 13 nominations. But it’s true that the title is a bit old-fashioned, suggests Canadian author Kelly Oxford.

Jon Hamm finally got his Emmy for “Mad Men.” We knew you could do it, Jon! Comedian Paul F. Tompkins calls out the fact (with, uh, more than a little snark) that it’s taken him forever for him to be recognized.

We love that fact that General Motors CEO Mary Barra took part in Amy Poehler’s #SmartGirlsAsk campaign by posing more intelligent questions on the red carpet using the hashtag #AskHerMore. Bravo.


And last but not least, Hillary Clinton congratulates Viola Davis and her incredible accomplishment. It was the most-tweeted moment of the night.
