Raphael Chestang

ET is bringing you some of the biggest "can't believe it" moments from Sunday night's 68th Primetime Emmy Awards.

Read on for some the best moments you didn't see!

1. Regina King's celebratory phone call with her son.


The Emmy winner's 20-year-old son, Ian, missed his mom's live acceptance of her award due to their cable going out at home, but he congratulated her when she called him from backstage. "I love you, I love you, I love you, too," he said. "Turn up! Turn up!"

2. John Oliver not being able to handle Beyonce's absence.


"I thought Beyoncé was going to be here," the Last Week Tonight host explained to ET backstage. "I saw a seating chart and I was supposed to sit two rows behind her, so all I've really been thinking about for the last 48 hours is, 'I'm going to be able to look at Beyoncé's head for four hours.' And she hasn't turned up. So, this is nice, but this evening generally has a sense of loss in it for me.

"I was gonna stare at the back of her head and experience happiness in a form that I probably haven't felt before," he added. "But probably wisely for Yonce, she's given this evening a pass."

3. A mini-Seinfeld reunion.


Julia Louis-Dreyfus was seen taking a selfie with former Seinfeld co-star Jerry Seinfeld and guest star Bryan Cranston.

4. The mini-Friday Night Lights reunion.

Connie Britton and Kyle Chandler melted our hearts with their adorable behind-the-scenes selfie.

5. Kristen Bell touching Kerry Washington's baby bump.


The two actresses shared a sweet exchange backstage, as Bell caressed Washington's blossoming baby bump.

6. Sterling K. Brown and Sarah Paulson's mutual admiration.


The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story co-stars both walked away with Emmy awards and they couldn't have been happier for each other's success.

7. Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy pretending not to know how to create a GIF.

8. Sterling K. Brown can't believe he's an Emmy winner.



The actor is batting 1.000 at the awards show, taking home the coveted statuette on his first nomination. Brown's portrayal of Christopher Darden in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story earned him a win for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or a Movie.

Huffman, Macy and Brown were just some of the celebs who visited the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® photo booth in the Emmy Giving™ Suite, benefiting the Television Academy Foundation at the 68th Emmy Awards.

Even ET's Denny Directo got in on the action!
