Giancarlo Esposito, who was nominated for best supporting actor for his part as Gus Fring in “Breaking Bad”, had some fun and brought a mask of his famous “Two-face Gus” from the series. What a way to kill off a character.
And the highlight of the night goes to Sofia Vergara for tweeting a picture of her dress that split down her backside with the quote: “Yes!!!! This happened 20 min before we won!!!! Jajajajja. I luv my life!!!!”
