Easily one of the highlights of an otherwise boring Emmys night was Bryan Cranston and Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ long kiss. The Veep actress complimented the Breaking Bad star’s kissing skills during a chat with the media after her win on Monday night.
The kiss was set up earlier in the night when Cranston and Louis-Dreyfus were called on stage to present an award. Cranston reminded her that he played dentist Tim Whatley on Seinfeld, who famously became Jewish just so he could deliver Jewish jokes. Louis-Dreyfus pretended not to remember that at all.
Then, as Louis-Dreyfus went to pick up her much-deserved Emmy for Veep, Cranston pulled her to the side and landed a lengthy kiss that Clark Gable would have been proud of. “You were on Seinfeld!” Louis-Dreyfus said during her acceptance speech.
As ABC News notes, after that moment, Cranston told the media that it’s “not a question of why, but more a question of why not?”
Louis-Dreyfus said that they had asked their spouses before kissing and she complimented his work. “It was pretty good,” she said. “He went for it!”
Louis-Dreyfus’ win also caught the attention of real Vice President Joe Biden, who congratulated her on Twitter.
