Some would win; most would not. But there was a lot of good humor out there. The grueling heat on the carpet was a breeze for "Lost" star Michael Emerson after that hell he called Hawaii. "We're filming in the jungle. It's sun, blood and mud. They're running out of places to put wounds on me," said Emerson, chuckling on a loud and crowded red carpet Sunday before the Emmys show at the Shrine Auditorium.
Emerson, who plays the mysterious Ben Linus on the ABC hit series, was nominated but ceded the Emmy for best supporting actor in a drama to co-star Terry O'Quinn. Later backstage O'Quinn said he would have been happy if Emerson had won instead. Like Emerson, O'Quinn said his character appeals to viewers because he's a mystery. "My character is a bit of a puzzle."
