Just as Jessica Lange came backstage to claim her Emmy for lead actress in a miniseries for "American Horror Story: Coven," series creator Ryan Murphy took the Nokia Theatre stage to accept an award for his television movie, "The Normal Heart."
"'The Normal Heart' just won? Oh great!" Lange said, standing at an off-camera table where winners claim their trophies.
"Can I just watch Ryan a minute?" she asked, clutching her new Emmy as she watched Murphy make his acceptance speech.
Lange was pretty pleased about her own win as well.
"I can't tell you how lovely and surprising it is to be here again," said Lange who has previously won Oscars and Emmys.
