Awards season has finally arrived, and the Emmy Awards were as emotional, glamorous and powerful as we could have hoped for.
But apart from lusting over dresses on the red carpet (like Sofia Vergara's - please can we borrow it?) and wiping tears away after Viola Davis's meaningful acceptance speech, what we really want to see is what happens behind the scenes of the carefully choreographed poses, perfect smoky eyes and immaculate outfits.
Thanks to Instagram, we can be as nosy as we like - and we've really enjoyed watching Sofia Vergara and Padma Lakshmi sharing a secret snack, seeing what shoes Alan Cummings likes to wear with a suit and finding out what really goes on in Mindy Kaling's mind when she presents an award.
Intrigued? Look no further... we've rounded up all the best Instagrams of the night just for you.
We can't decide who looks more delighted at his award, Jon Hamm or January Jones
Good to know we're not the only ones who do this when we're all dolled up...
