Justin Timberlake and Gwyneth Paltrow have emerged as the star winners at this year's Emmy awards for their stint as guest actors on TV shows.
Timberlake, 31, was named the Outstanding Guest Actor for appearing in Saturday Night Live, while Paltrow won the award for the Best Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her stint in Glee, the Hollywood Reporter said.
The awards were announced at a gala ceremony hosted by actress Jane Lynch which took place at the Nokia Theater in downtown Los Angeles last night.
