Emmy night: Aghdashloo on Iran

Shohreh Aghdashloo - winner of outstanding supporting actress in a miniseries or movie - is an Iranian, but she portrayed an Iraqi, Saddam Hussein's wife, in "House of Saddam."

Aghdashloo, who fled Iran three decades ago, spoke about international diplomacy backstage. She said she hopes U.S. President Barack Obama would talk seriously with the Iranian government, perhaps even with the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. She left no doubt about her loyalties.

"I'm wearing this green bracelet in solidarity with the young people in Iran who shook the world with their civil disobedience and uprising," she said.
