Connie Britton is deeply sorry she couldn’t reunite with her American Horror Story: Murder House co-star Dylan McDermott at the 75th Emmy Awards.
The actress took to Instagram on Thursday to share a message specifically directed toward McDermott and Rubber Man, who starred alongside her in the first season of the hit horror anthology series in 2011.

“Dear @dylan.mcdermott and #Rubberman, I am so sorry I had to miss joining you on Monday at the #Emmyawards for an @ahsfx reunion!” she wrote. “Even though I was impregnated with the antichrist by at least one, if not both of you, I was truly looking forward to seeing you on that grand Emmy stage and reminiscing about those good old spooky days.”
Britton’s rep previously told The Hollywood Reporter that she missed the ceremony because she had to travel back to New York early for production on Zero Day due to a snowstorm forecast to hit the East Coast.
The actress also took the opportunity to share her “Emmy pictures” of her intended look for the awards ceremony.
“This is as far as I got before being alerted that, because of a snowstorm in NY, I had to hop the next plane in order to make it to work on time the next day,” she explained in her post. “And while I’m at it, thanks to @kristinhilton, @lonavigi, and @katiebof for getting me all glammed up. I was definitely the most decked out person on my cross country flight that evening! Congrats to all the nominees and winners!”
Britton concluded with a message to the one and only Rubber Man: “Don’t be a stranger.”
McDermott still took to the stage Monday night to present the award for best actor in a limited or anthology series or TV movie, which went to Steven Yeun for Beef.
Rubber Man also made an appearance with McDermott, but it ended up just being host Anthony Anderson dressed in a black spandex bodysuit.
The 75th Primetime Emmy Awards were filled with several more cast reunions from beloved television shows, including Ally McBeal, Grey’s Anatomy, Cheers, Martin, and The Sopranos.
