After Monday night's boring not-so-surprising Emmy Awards, TV's brightest stars celebrated their wins, danced away their losses and wished they would have worn anything but a red dress. That's right, it was after-party time.

From the Governors Ball to HBO's annual soiree and FOX's bash, celebrities made their way around and toasted to "Breaking Bad" and "Modern Family," you know, the two shows that basically took home every award.
