Bill Hader: Grateful for his Emmy nom, exhausted from partying with Jon Hamm

As it turns out, parties at Jon Hamm’s house are just as awesome as you’ve always dreamed they would be. “It was just like, really crazy famous people everywhere,” Bill Hader says, describing a shindig that the Mad Men star hosted after emceeing the ESPYS last night.

“For about an hour, it felt like a Vanity Fair Oscar party: ‘Oh, there’s Tom Cruise talking to Ben Affleck, and there’s Eric… Schmidt. You know?” Hader says, laughing. (No, we do not know.) “And you’re just kind of hugging the food area, standing there with some hors d’oeuvres, just like, ‘Oh my God, there’s a lot of people here.'”

As the father of two young kids, Hader is usually a homebody — but he attended the post-ESPYS party yesterday on a whim: “I was like, ‘I got nothing. I don’t have to wake up early tomorrow.'”

Netflix exec talks historic Emmy nominations and the company's future

With 14 Emmy nominations — nine for House for Cards, including Outstanding Drama Series and acting nods for Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright — Netflix has definitely made a statement while making history as the first Internet network to break into the field. “The great message is, and I think Emmy voters confirmed it for us today, great television is great television, no matter how it gets to the screen,” Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos says.

“What we were able to put on the screen this year earned 14 Emmy nominations. We’re thrilled. We’re a little giddy about it,” he says, laughing hard. “We took some really big bets, but we bet on some really big talent in David Fincher, Mitch Hurwitz, and Eli Roth,” he continues. Hurwitz’s Arrested Development earned three nominations (for lead actor Jason Bateman, single-camera picture editing, and original music composition), while Roth’s Hemlock Grove was recognized for its main title-theme music and special visual-effects.

“We also took a big bet on staying out of their way and letting them create a show,” Sarandos says. “These shows that were nominated today are not the result of pilots and testing and studio and network notes. This is really the result of great storytellers telling great stories, and we couldn’t be more proud of them.”
