We know, we know. We probably say this every year, but we really mean it this time. It was an incredible year for TV. Some of the best dramas, comedies, miniseries and made for TV movies came out of the networks in the last 12 months, making the 2014 Emmys a veritable showcase of some of the best talent in Hollywood. While in some cases we wish that more than one winner could have come out of certain categories *cough* Breaking Bad AND True Detective for Best Drama *cough,* we accept it just could not be so. But, despite not getting all our wishes granted, we’s gots a job to do, and that job is awesome because we get to interview the winners. Below, hear our conversations with everyone from Breaking Bad’s Anna Gunn to Veep’s Julia Louis Dreyfus and many more of the 2014 Emmy winners.

“She wasn’t soft, and she wasn’t weepy and she wasn’t going to stand in the corner and ring her hands and so that made some people angry. They didn’t like that she stood up strongly and said ‘no, I don’t agree with this,'” Gunn said of the backlash against her character.

“It’s kind of a wild ride … we get a script like the episode before we’re gonna shoot it, so you never know what the context is going to be or what you’re going to be expected to do. So sometimes you just have to put your foot down and say ‘nope, you know, I just can’t do that,'” Lange said of her new experience with TV.

“It’s hard core. I love it. I love it. I really love it. I would watch it if I wasn’t on it and I’d be pissed that I wasn’t on it, too,” Louis-Dreyfuss said.

Julie Bowen who was nominated for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series for her role as Claire Dunphy in ABC’s Modern Family talking about the entire cast, which won for best comedy. 
“I know that I’m not the world’s greatest mom, I guarantee that, on TV or in real life. My kids both real and fake can attest to that,” Bowen joked of her two roles as a mom.

Jim Parsons who won lead actor in a comedy for his role on The Big Bang Theory, and who was nominated for supporting actor in a TV movie or miniseries, talking about his role in HBO’s The Normal Heart.
“Dramas are tricky, you take most of your cues in silence that it’s working … this was such an intense experience between us the actors and the audience that was there. I have never heard such crying that you could hear,” Parsons said of the difficulty of performing The Normal Heart in the Theater.
