Tony Hale actually came up on stage when Julia Louis-Dreyfus accepted her award to hold her bag (only Veep fans will understand).

As always we congratulate all of the winners at the Emmy awards (but particularly hose affiliated with the Home Box Office) on their incredible achievements.  Thank you for entertaining us this year.

UPDATE: Jeff Daniels looks pretty happy these days:
