It was a Friday night to remember for a few members of the Modern Family cast – they spent an hour of it trapped in an elevator.
Eric Stonestreet, Julie Bowen and Jesse Tyler Ferguson were on their way to headline a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City – Stonestreet's hometown – when the elevator at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center stopped.

Fashion wasn't the only hot topic on the red carpet at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards.
From Claire Danes talking about being a new mom to Julia Louis-Dreyfus accepting a 52nd birthday present, nothing was off limits.
Danes – who welcomed son Cyrus with husband Hugh Dancy in December – looked flawless in a red Versace gown, but beamed most when speaking about her new addition (upstairs at the Beverly Hilton Hotel with his grandparents). "I've been in baby world," she told Ryan Seacrest. "I'm hoping I don't leak!"

Come Sunday, Eric Stonestreet may take home a Golden Globe Award for his portrayal of doting dad Cameron Tucker on ABC's Modern Family.
But there's a special somebody who doesn't seem to be rooting for a big win: Stonestreet's dog, Coleman Hawkins, who the actor says doesn't get caught up in the spirit of red carpet season.
Amped up for all the glitz and the glamour? "No, nothing like that," Stonestreet, 41, told PEOPLE at a pre-Globes party in L.A.

Cecconi's in West Hollywood was the site of a celebrity date night as Audi kicked off Golden Globes week with a star-studded bash on Sunday.
Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts arrived holding hands and spent the evening cozied up in one corner of the restaurant's covered patio, an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
With Schreiber sipping on a glass of red wine with one arm draped adoringly around the beaming Watts's waist, the duo couldn't look any more in love.
The couple later caught up with actress Kate Bosworth and her fiancé, director Michael Polish, with Schreiber only breaking away to cross the crowded room and greet a late-arriving, Connie Britton, who was resplendent in an off-the-shoulder floor-length red gown.

Thanksgiving may be weeks away, but Eric Stonestreet is feeling the gratitude.
The Modern Family star is glad that when he visited an animal shelter in 2000, he didn't leave empty-handed.
"Through it all. Ups downs. Disappointments and excitement. Success and failure. This guy remains to be the best decision I've ever made," Stonestreet Tweeted Monday, with a pretty WhoSay portrait of his beloved Jack Russell terrier/beagle mix Coleman.

Cameron Tucker, do you take Mitchell Pritchett ...
Now, just wait a minute. Sure, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who plays Mitchell to Eric Stonestreet's Cam on ABC's Modern Family, may look like they are standing under a wedding canopy in this photo Ferguson posted to his WhoSay account, but the actor also included this caption: "It's not what it looks like. Or is it? Guess you'll have to wait to find out!"
What a tease.

For some reason I started Emmy night worrying that Hugh Bonneville of PBS Masterpiece's Downton Abbey would win best actor in a drama, or that there'd be a Downton sweep. He gives a perfectly lovely performance, but it's essentially like watching Piers Morgan mellowed by a life of having valets brush his evening jacket.
But Damian Lewis won for Homeland, allowing my head to clear and track what I thought the Emmys got right and got wrong.
Got right: Homeland, Showtime.
Mad Men and Breaking Bad both had tremendous seasons, but neither was as brilliantly focused right out of the gate as this new political thriller. It was fitting, too, that the acting awards went to both Lewis and Claire Danes: They're a sort of Janus head – two faces, terrorist and counter-terrorist, each collapsing under the pressure of a duty to protect (hers) and destroy (his).

Although Mad Men and American Horror Story led the race with 17 nominations each, the casts of Modern Family, Homeland and Game Change are the ones who will be really celebrating after Sunday's 64th Primetime Emmy Awards.
Eric Stonestreet took home the first award of the night for outstanding supporting actor in a comedy, setting the tone for the rest of the evening. In a repeat of last year's early Emmys sweep for the series, Julie Bowen took home the best supporting actress award, marking her second consecutive win in the category, followed by the show's co-creator Steve Levitan winning the Emmy for outstanding comedy direction. The cast closed out the evening the same way it began, with another win, this time for outstanding comedy series.
Newcomer Homeland had an incredible night following the show's debut season. The Showtime series' star Damian Lewis won the Emmy for the lead actor in a drama series – while his pregnant costar Claire Danes scooped up the best actress award. Homeland also took home the Emmys for outstanding writing and outstanding drama series.

On Sunday night, Eric Stonestreet took home an Emmy, but the Modern Family star did not have Charlize Theron on his arm at L.A.'s Nokia Theatre, contrary to tabloid reports.
Shooting down rumors of a romance, Stonestreet took to Twitter true to his comedic roots. "I wish people would stop spreading rumors that Charlize Theron and I are dating," he wrote. "Its starting to make Halle Berry jealous."
He also joked about it on the Emmy red carpet, deadpanning to PEOPLE: "Charlize is a beautiful woman and I just wish she'd stop calling."
Suddenly, he looked around and said, "Oh, who's that looking at me now? Is that Mila Kunis? Hi, Mila."
