When it comes to award shows, it's pretty standard to see close costars, cute celebrity couples, and famous best friends (we're looking at you, Amy and Tina!), but it's also refreshing to get a glimpse of high-profile pairings that we didn't even know existed. While watching Sunday's Emmy Awards, we couldn't help but notice the amount of mingling going on in the audience and at the afterparties. Sure, maybe we could have guessed that funny ladies Lena Dunham and Sarah Silverman are acquainted, but who knew that the Girls star has been close with Claire Danes for years? Oscar winners Kevin Spacey and Matt Damon also talked shop during the show while Laura Dern chatted it up with Mick Jagger at an afterparty — and perhaps most surprisingly, Derek Hough got involved in a pretty impressive dance-off with Breaking Bad's Dean Norris during AMC's post-Emmys bash.
