To celebrate the Emmys on Sunday, ET is looking back at some of our earliest interviews with this year's nominees before they were famous.
ET first fell in love with Modern Family star Julie Bowen in 1995 on the snowy set of the adventure series Extreme. At the time, the now two-time Emmy winner was just trying to get through our interview in one piece.
Claire, who already has three Emmy wins on her resume, is nominated once again for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for playing Carrie Mathison on Homeland.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus was having a blast shooting her first sitcom, Day by Day, when we first met her in 1988.
"It's fun for me to come in and play a sarcastic character, and that's what I do," she said.
Julia already has five Emmys at home, and this year she's up for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for playing President Selina Meyer on Veep -- a role that has earned her three previous nominations and just as many wins.
Robin Wright is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for playing the sophisticated and refined first lady Claire Underwood, but in 1985 she was portraying a hooker in the action flick Hollywood Vice Squad.
