Colin Quinn thought the "SNL" 40th anniversary celebration was "kind of great," but there was one person he'd hoped would show.

"I wished [former 'SNL' cast member] Dennis Miller was there," he told HuffPost Live in a conversation on Wednesday.

When asked if he had any idea why Miller wasn't, Quinn said no.

The festivities otherwise exceeded expectations, according to Quinn.

"Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone, they're so hot right now, they're like two seats away!" he recalled. "I was just glad I was two seats away and not 18 rows, like I should've been."

And while the show itself was funny, behind the scenes was quite different.

"I felt really emotional, backstage mostly," he described. "The show itself was fine but backstage, you're like 'Oh my god, everybody' -- we forgot we all knew each other so much."
