TV Junkie: Primetime Emmy Winners in the Press Room

One thing most people don't see is what happens in the Press Room at the Emmys. After the winners leave the stage, they have the choice to do interviews with the likes of ET's Mary Hart and other outlets. They also have the choice to go into the press room to answer questions from the 300-or-so members of the press assembled there.

CBS provides footage from a very nice camera mounted in the room but it's a pain to get a hold of so the TV Junkie took his Flip camera up front to hear what some of his favorites had to say. The footage is shaky but the sound is excellent, so good that you can hear yours truly laughing like an ass while Tina Fey joked on stage. At best you only see a tiny snippet of what these actors and creators have to say but here's your chance to hear everything.

We recorded the statements from the following Emmy winners: the cast of "30 Rock", Bryan Cranston from "Breaking Bad", Glenn Close from "Damages", and Matt Weiner, the creator of "Mad Men" along with its cast.

Tina Fey and the cast of "30 Rock" answered reporters' questions in the Press Room of the 2009 Primetime Emmys. "30 Rock" won the 2009 Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series. Tina Fey answers most questions, including one from E!'s Ted Casablanca. Jane Krakowski got called up to the mic by an admiring Israeli reporter and Tina Fey inadvertently gave him Jane's hotel room number - hilarious!
