Amy Poehler, Will Arnett, Backstage Emmy awards

We were prepared to have the Emmy Awards bring the biggest TV stars together. There were some run-ins, however, we just never saw coming!

During Sunday's show at the Nokia Theatre, Will Arnett and his ex-wife Amy Poehler reunited backstage for a short amount of time.

Cameras caught the former couple sitting next to each other at the same table. 

Although both Poehler and Arnett have moved on with possible new romances—she's dating Nick Kroll, he's dating Katie Lee—the two appeared to be friendly and happy to see each other.

Before his backstage encounter with the Parks and Recreation star, Arnett had fans talking for an entirely different reason. Viewers couldn't help but notice his new tan.

One fan tweeted her shock over the actor's new glow. "Looks like George Hamilton ejaculated on Will Arnett's face," a Twitter follower shared.

The funnyman, however, took the criticism in stride.  "How dare you," he Tweeted back. "I'll have you know I earned my tan the old-fashioned waspy way...Hiking,golf,tennis and galavanting about."

Okay Will, we'll give you a break on the tan. But what about you and Ryan Seacrest matching in nearly identical Burberry suits?

We're eagerly waiting for another hilarious explanation.
