The 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, proved to be a gratifying night for big winners "Homeland," "Modern Family" and "Game Change"— "and no one watching at home," reports Salon.

Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman

Phil Kaufman, Clive Owen and statuesque Nicole Kidman (in a gorgeous turquoise crystal embroidered white gown) nursed their "Hemingway and Gellhorn" loss (the film did win best music score and sound editing); on her way out Kidman went over to greet "Newsroom" star Jane Fonda, sitting with Nancy Davis and Michael J. Fox. Well aware of criticisms of the women's roles in "Newsroom," Fonda plans to approach Aaron Sorkin with ideas about having her network boss character engage more with Emily Mortimer's executive producer as a mentor.

Stephen Colbert met Mel Brooks for the first time, he told me. Brooks asked him how each person he interviewed limited or defined his character. Dick Cavett was also hanging with Brooks.

While many producers like Propaganda's Steve Golin are heading toward television, other TV folks want to parlay their success in television in movies, from Benioff, who is trying to raise financing to direct a film from his novel "City of Thieves" ("It's wonderful--and would make a great movie," tweeted @SusanOrlean) to "Downton Abbey" star Hugh Bonneville. He was also among the nominees and Brits who showed up en masse to the blazing hot rooftop London Hotel BAFTA pre-party Saturday, including co-star Michelle Dockery, Benedict Cumberbatch ("Sherlock"), Martin Freeman ("The Hobbit"), Dominic Monaghan ("The Lord of the Rings," "Lost"), Stephen Moyer ("True Blood"), Damian Lewis ("Homeland"), Jared Harris ("Mad Men"), Jacqueline Bisset, and Julian Fellowes, creator of "Downton Abbey," who likes working in-depth on television so much that he isn't chasing movie projects like "Gosford Park," which only got made because of Robert Altman, he said. "Boardwalk Empire" star Michael Stuhlbarg is a busy camper. His upcoming movies include R-rated Toronto Fest hit "Seven Psychopaths," Spielberg's historic "Lincoln" and a juicy role as agent Lew Wasserman in "Hitchcock," which Fox Searchlight has just added to the crammed awards season schedule. 

Here's Aljean Harmetz on why the TV networks aren't earning Emmy drama love. Also this weekend, "Looper" star Joseph Gordon-Levitt seems to have disappointed on Saturday Night Live.
