TV’s Biggest Talent Take the Stage at 2016 Emmy Awards; People V. O.J. Simpson, Game of Thrones Win Big

A-List stars arrived in style at the 2016 Emmy Awards on Sunday, where People V. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story and Game of Thrones dominated the competition with multiple wins.

The HBO series, based of George R.R. Martin's fantasy novels, is now the most awarded scripted series in Emmy history, according to officials. Game of Thrones won 12 Emmys Sunday night.

"It's just nice people being like 'your show's awesome' and your like 'yeah, thanks'," said Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen in the show.

"It didn't think it was going to happen, we broke records," said Sophie Turner on the show's Outstanding Drama Series win.

The People V. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story was also one of the favorites of the night, receiving 22 Emmy nominations and winning Outstanding Limited Series.

David Schwimmer, who played Robert Kardashian in the series, was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series. Although the award went to his co-star, Sterling K. Brown, Schwimmer told KTLA he was excited just to be nominated.

The 49-year-old actor spoke with Kris Jenner, of Keeping Up With the Kardashians fame, about her late ex-husband prior to taking the role.

"She was really generous with her time," said Schwimmer about the Kardashian matriarch. "I spoke with her once for about two hours. She was great. I learned a lot about who he was, a family man, and how a man of great faith he was."

Louie Anderson took home the award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his role as Zach Galifianakis' mother in FX's Baskets.

Anderson told KTLA he drew inspiration from his own mother for the part, thanking her in his acceptance speech.

"Louie C.K. called me he said 'I'm here with Zach Galifianakis, we want you to play a character on TV'. I said yeah. They go 'we want you to play Zach's mom', and I go 'yes,'" said Anderson before the show. "Nobody's wanted to talk to me for 15 years. I put a dress on and now everyone wants to talk to me."

Jeffery Tambor won Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for his work in Amazon Studios' Transparent. 

"I was raised by a wonderful Jewish father, Russian-Hungarian, and he always said 'don't celebrate, don't celebrate or they'll take it from you.' So things like this are rough," said Tambor jokingly after the show. "But I'm so happy Sam."

Bryan Cranston, nominated for his role as President Lyndon B. Johnson in HBO's All The Way, spoke with KTLA about his new memoir.

The six-time Emmy winner said he was excited to be nominated and hope that his fans might learn a few new facts about him in his book.

"It's exciting. I have a book coming out next month. I do, I do," said Cranston. "I wrote a book called The Life in Parts, it's a memoir. If I'm going to do this I might as well just lay it all out there, and let it all come out warts and all."

Cranston said the most surprising thing about his book is the revelation that he was once suspected of murder.

"I was wanted for murder at one point. Does that scare you Sam," Cranston jokingly said to KTLA's Sam Rubin. "For a short period of time I was wanted for murder. I didn't do it, of course everybody says they didn't do it."

Jerry Seinfeld attended the iconic award show for the first time in 18 years. The famed comedian and actor has not made an appearance at the Emmys since 1998.

This year he was nominated for his role in his Crackle show, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.

"Clean and simple, that's my code," said Seinfeld, referring to his wardrobe. "Once I buy it's mine. I'm wearing me."

Other major wins for the night include Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black, for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep, for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series and Rami Malek, Mr. Robot, for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.
