She was a lock alright, a lip lock! Julia-Louis Dreyfus got more than she bargained for when she won Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series at the 2014 Emmy Awards at the Nokia Theatre in L.A. Aug. 25. Julia was practically accosted by former ‘Seinfeld’ guest star Bryan Cranston.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus is taking home some serious mustache burn in addition to her Emmy Award tonight. The ‘Veep’ star found herself in the arms of Bryan Cranston, 58, who played her love interest on ‘Seinfeld’ many moons ago.
Bryan Cranston Makes Out With Julia Louis-Dreyfus At Emmy Awards
What a smooch! Julia, 53, was grabbed and kissed like nobody’s business by Bryan Cranston when she went up to accept her Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series at the Emmy Awards. Her third consecutive Emmy win was nothing compared to the reunion that Dr. Tim Whatley and Elaine Benes just had at the foot of the Emmys stage!
“I’m a mess, I’m a wreck, I don’t have anything prepared,” she stammered when she finally got to the stage to nab her prize. Maybe she was just out of breath from sucking face with her pal Bryan. We really think that she is an amazing actress and that her win was well-deserved even if the kiss was a bit over the top.

Of course, the whole thing wasn’t just a spur-of-the-moment decision — these are professionals, folks. “There was planning that went into it, when Bryan and I were talking on the phone about what we were going to do with our presenting bit…it dawned on me when we were speaking that this would be a nice part 3 of the joke,” Julia explained of the buss business. “I asked my husband if he was ok with that and he said sure, Bryan checked with his wife and she said sure.”
So what does she think of the kiss that will now live forever as part of Emmy Awards history? “It was pretty good, I think he went for it, man. I appreciate that. He goes for it in everything he does!”
Do you think the kiss was as funny as we do, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
