Following the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, Stephen Colbert and Evelyn McGee-Colbert attend the Post Award Reception at The Plaza at the Pacific Design Center and the Governors Ball.
The Colbert rapport. Joyous Emmy winner Stephen Colbert arrived at the AMC party near midnight with his wife, Evelyn McGee-Colbert. Colbert was such a hot guest that even Mad Men stars such as Jay R. Ferguson lined up in what he called “a receiving line” to praise the talk-show host. During their conversation, Colbert returned the favor by telling the Mad Men stars what a fan he is of the show, before jumping over to sit down with Emmy winner Anna Gunn of Breaking Bad for a deep conversation. But Colbert quickly returned to his wife, eliciting awws as he pulled out his iPhone to take a picture of her in the moody lighting. He then asked a waitress to bring over Champagne and fell into his wife’s arms.
