It wasn't a dream! I was so afraid I'd wake up this morning and find out that Mariska's Emmy victory was all just a figment of my imagination, but it happened, it really, really happened. And best of all, Marish and I shared a private moment at TV Guide's After Party that, well, wasn't technically private since the whole thing was captured in this exclusive video clip!

I'll have more from Marish - including scoop on Benson's upcoming crisis on SVU - in Wednesday's Emmy-themed Ask Ausiello. In the meantime, if you haven't already done so, you must watch my other After Party interviews with Milo Ventimiglia, Scott Wolf, Jamie Bamber, the cast of Grey's Anatomy, James Denton, Judy Reyes, Jennifer Finnigan, Autumn Reeser, Greg Grunberg, Paula Abdul and Pauley Perrette. Click here for the entire archive. And did I mention that two of my interview subjects kissed me smack on the lips? In their defense, I was looking pretty cute in my tux.

If you've got any burning Emmy-related questions, or just want to give me more grief about my predictions, send them to me ASAP at

Now, excuse me while I tear into my TV Guide After Party gift bag. I think I saw a tube of cinnamon-ice-flavored Crest toothpaste....
