Walking into her living room, where her parents were watching Sunday's Emmy Awards, Jane Lipsitz asked before the announcement for outstanding reality competition program, "Did we lose yet?"
Anything but. Lipsitz, who was working in New York on the Justin Bieber 3-D concert film, watched as her Magical Elves production company's Top Chef defeated the long-dominant (and seven-time winner) Amazing Race.
"Everyone just went nuts," says Lipsitz. "My phone, my Blackberry, it was all going crazy. Then [coproducer] Dan [Cutforth] calls me from backstage and says, 'I can't believe you're not here!' "

Forget red. Modern Family is so thrilled with their Emmy win, they may have painted the town nude.
"Listen, I'm not afraid of anything. I'm Colombian," Sofia Vergara, 38, told Access Hollywood about streaking on one of the busiest streets in Hollywood.
The team behind the hit ABC comedy publicly – through an ad in the trade papers – stated in July that Vergara would "run naked down Sunset Blvd." if the show won outstanding comedy at Sunday's Emmys.

Jim Parsons and Eric Stonestreet, who took home the lead and supporting comedy-actor awards at the Emmys on Sunday, both love their mothers dearly. But only one of them will be handing over his Emmy for her to keep.
"He was so sweet," Parsons told PEOPLE after Stonestreet promised his mom she could take his trophy home. But Parsons couldn't quite muster the courage to follow that magnanimous gesture.
"My mother will not be getting this Emmy," he said with a smile. "She can visit it."

Saddened by the absence of nominee Martin Short from Sunday's Emmy Awards, friends spoke of the actor's talent, love and "extraordinary" 30-year marriage to Nancy Dolman, who died last week.
"Marty is an amazing actor, and that's the least of his talents," Catherine O'Hara, an old friend and comedy colleague of Short's, told ET Canada. "He's such a beautiful, beautiful person. I love him so much, and I love his family, and I'm sorry he can't be here tonight."
She added: "I think you all know how funny he is. He's just such a wise old soul, and in any situation in life, he's the model of how to be. Even now."

One old favorite and one new kid on the block took top Emmy honors.
Mad Men won the outstanding drama series for the third consecutive year on Sunday night, while Modern Family was named outstanding comedy series.
A 14-time nominee, ABC's ensemble comedy netted an early win for supporting actor Eric Stonestreet, who plays the loveable Cameron Tucker.
"All I wanted to be was a clown in the circus when I was a kid growing up," the first-time winner, who called the gig "the most amazing job ever," said onstage.

George Clooney brought a lighthearted touch while accepting a special Emmy Award for a rather serious subject.
"I have offered to go to South Sudan and have, like, a wardrobe malfunction," Clooney cracked, while accepting the Bob Hope Humanitarian Award at Sunday's telecast. "But it was pointed out to me that I'm 49, and the consensus was that it would just be upsetting. And kind of sad."
The actor, who was recognized for most recently organizing a telethon for victims of the Haitian earthquake, has also been active in raising awareness about genocide in Darfur.

Neil Patrick Harris is excited about fatherhood. But, before the babies arrive, the actor is doing his research.
"I'm trying to read as much as I can, and prep as much as I can," Harris, 37, told Ryan Seacrest before Sunday's Emmy Awards. "But there's only so much you can do because each baby is super individual and totally their own person."
The How I Met Your Mother star and his partner David Burtka recently announced they are expecting twins, with the help of a surrogate, in the fall.
"[I'm] very, very excited," the two-time Emmy winner said. "It's the big, crazy calm before the ridiculous storm."

Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer may have just tied the knot, but they aren't planning a honeymoon – yet.
"Hopefully soon," Paquin, 28, told Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet at the Emmy Awards about honeymoon plans. (First, the True Blood costars have an Emmy to present.)
Work didn't prevent them from reminiscing about their recent nuptials, though. "It was lovely," Moyer said of the ceremony, which, he joked, they shared with "a few thousand friends and family."
"It was a great day," Moyer, 40, said seriously. "Just, it couldn't have been better."

Kim Kardashian has been playing it coy about her dating life – but apparently the reality star isn't afraid to meet men if the cameras are rolling.
"I'm dating," Kardashian, who's been linked to NFL star Miles Austin recently, told Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet at the Emmy Awards.
"[But] I don't like blind dates," she said, noting that mother Kris Jenner sets her up with somebody on Sunday's Keeping up with the Kardashians. "She's trying to come up with all these names in Hollywood, and I'm like 'Just get me out of here. I want a normal Armenian boy.' "

Hey, here's a high-concept idea: "Let's lock off the red carpet, and the red carpet is our Bachelor Pad," he says.
So who would he invite?
"First and foremost, Sofia Vergara," he says. "I don't know her. I've never met her, but I'm just starting with her and I'm hoping it'll just end with her."
He'll still give a few of her Modern Family costars a chance as well. Julie Bowen, Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson are also on his list of dream Pad tenants.
