Claire Danes got a warm congratulatory hug from Julie Bowen when the winner of this year's Emmy for best dramatic actress in a TV series bumped into one of the stars of the comedy "Modern Family" backstage.

"No great surprise," said Bowen, herself a nominee for supporting actress in a comedy series and a past two-time winner of that award.

"Are you going to rush home to baby?" she asked Danes.

"Baby's asleep!" Danes said before collecting her Emmy.
