Steve left The Office at the end of this past season to focus on other career opportunities (mainly in film).

He was a six-time Emmy nominee for playing boss Michael Scott on the hit comedy.

Steve himself talked about the possibility of an Emmy win with MTV on the red carpet before the show.

"It would be a culmination of all my hopes and dreams," he shared. "It would be great, but I'm putting my expectations on the fairly low side and just trying to enjoy it and see my friends. I haven't seen my friends from The Office in a while, so that's going to be fun."

Jim Parsons of The Big Bang Theory won the best actor prize for the second year in a row.
