There were many stars who attended the Super Bowl and its pregame festivities in New Orleans this past weekend — and they were happy to share their social snaps with the world. Beyoncé Knowles celebrated her successful Super Bowl halftime show with Jay-Z backstage while Alicia Keys got cozy with Swizz Beatz on the field after singing the national anthem before the game. Meanwhile, Channing Tatum took part in the NFL Honor Awards and Ian Somerhalder played a celebrity football game with Nina Dobrev. Click through for many more celebrity social photos from the big football weekend.
Jon Cryer won the Emmy tonight for outstanding lead actor in a comedy, and though it's not his first win for Two and a Half Men, it is his first award for lead actor; the last time he won, it was in the supporting category. When Cryer hit the press room, he talked about that distinction, as well as how the landscape of the series has changed since Charlie Sheen's exit. Cryer kept it light, emphasizing that he did not expect to win, and he even had a chance to address the haircut of upcoming guest star Miley Cyrus.
On not expecting to win: "I'm as shocked as you people. That's why my speech sucked."
On the biggest challenge of the show this year: "The biggest challenge this year was relaunching the show. The biggest thing was, 'Can this thing continue?' That it has is amazing, and that this happened is ridiculous."
On how the chemistry with Ashton Kutcher is different than it was with Charlie Sheen: "Clearly, it's totally different. With Charlie it was automatic. With Ashton, Ashton and I are always working on it, and coming up with new stuff. Show nights go incredibly fast now."
On submitting his name in the lead actor category: "When Charlie and I were doing the show together, the show really rested on Charlie. The show was really structured around his character. It felt silly for me to be a lead. Obviously the show changed; they changed the show into more of a partnership."
On Melissa McCarthy's funny Emmy introduction: "That woman can do no wrong. She makes me howl with laughter, so I'll take it."
On being upgraded from supporting actor to lead actor: "I will be impossible to live with after this. I will be brandishing this."
On who he thought would win: "I thought Jim Parsons was going to win again. Clearly Big Bang is at the top of its game right now, and it obviously has not gotten any worse. I just did not for a minute think this was going to happen."
On Miley Cyrus, who is guest starring on Two and Half Men this season: "She plays kind of a motormouth character, so they gave her page-long monologues. All week she was on book with them, which is understandable. But even when we got within two hours of the show, she was still on book, and we were thinking, uh oh, Miley better bring it. Miley brought it. Miley was fantastic, on fire. Then I remembered, oh yes, she was hatched in the Disney labs in Burbank, and grown for just this sitcom situation. I know her haircut is controversial but I lay on the side of: I love it, I think she looks fantastic."
Jon Cryer walked away with the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a comedy tonight, an honor that left him in "utter disbelief." He stopped to talk with us about what the win means after Two and a Half Men's "tumultuous" year and filled us in on upcoming guest star Miley Cyrus. Check out our backstage chat with Jon!
Ashton Kutcher joined his Two and a Half Men costars Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones along with the show's creator Chuck Lorre at today's CBS Winter TCA panel in Pasadena. Ashton shocked the crowd with a cleaned up look, which he revealed will be woven into the story line starting on Monday night's episode — check out everything Ashton, Chuck, and the rest of the cast had to say with Buzz's full recap of the Two and a Half Men's TCA discussion.
Ashton was still wearing his wedding band, but was noticeably fidgeting with it during the chat. Since news of Ashton's split from Demi Moore the actor's been keeping a low profile at home and overseas. He vacationed with friends in Greece and Germany over the holidays and recently took in a Lakers game in LA. So far the story line of Two and a Half Men eerily mirrors some of the details of Ashton's personal life so we'll just have to keep watching to see what the future has in store for his onscreen character and real-life Ashton.
I've already shared my thoughts (as have you!) about who might win for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama when the Emmys get handed out later this month; now, let's turn our attention to their funny counterparts. These supporting actors in the comedy category already have many of your votes, but here's my two cents!
I'm gearing up for the Emmys by letting you guys weigh in on the nominees for each category — you're all so passionate about your favorite actors that I love getting the feedback. I already asked you who you'd pick for supporting actor in a drama, so now I'm going to lighten up a bit and talk about the supporting actors in the comedy category.
Refreshingly, there are a lot of first timers in this category, like Glee's Chris Colfer and the three Modern Family men: Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Ty Burrell. Veteran Neil Patrick Harris from How I Met Your Mother is also up for guest star on Glee, but this is fourth nomination for supporting actor, and he hasn't brought home a statue . . .yet. Lastly, Two and a Half Men's Jon Cryer is up again after winning for the first time last year.
Who do you think should win the Emmy? State your case in the comments below, and you may see your argument in my Emmy breakdown later!
Last night's big winners went from accepting their awards on stage straight into the press room, where Sandra Bullock humbly spoke about her honor. Kathryn Bigelow was visibly moved after being the first female to pick up best director for The Hurt Locker, though she's looking forward to a day when gender becomes a moot point. Rachel McAdams and Jake Gyllenhaal were flanking Geoffrey Fletcher, who picked up best screenplay for Precious.
Mo'Nique and Christoph Waltz brought their supporting actor gold in for a few photos, while Jeff Bridges joked about starting a band with Colin Farrell. Molly Ringwald and Matthew Broderick joined other actors from John Hughes films to chat after their touching tribute to the late director. There's lots more to come from Hollywood's biggest night, including all the afterparties, so stay tuned!

Lots of celebs had fun at the Emmy Awards last night, and the good times continued around LA with various afterparties. The HBO bash brought out the stars of Entourage, with Jerry Ferrara cuddling up to girlfriend Jamie-Lynn Sigler as AnnaLynne McCord smiled for the cameras. January Jones struck a pose on ET's red carpet, and inside big winners Jon Cryer and Toni Collette chatted with their newly-acquired gold. The exclusive Governor's Party was the destination of Mariska Hargitay, Jennifer Westfeldt and Jon Hamm, who wasn't home to see all the crazy moments from the latest episode of Best Drama Mad Men.
Blake Lively picked another low-cut dress to mix and mingle at the HBO event, where Big Love's Ginnifer Goodwin and Chloe Sevigny appeared to be having fun together. Over at the Governor's Ball, Andy Samberg left girlfriend Joanna Newsom's side for a moment to pose next to big man of the night Neil Patrick Harris. Alec Baldwin proudly showed off his statue, and Debra Messing gave a big bear hug to pal Mary-Louise Parker. Kellan Lutz was one of the lone Twilighters making the social rounds, taking a little break from working with Robert Pattinson and the gang up in Vancouver to hit the ET bash.
