Copresenting with Quantico’s Priyanka Chopra, a tux-clad Hiddleston, 35, was presenting the Emmy for Best Directing in a Limited Series, which incidentally went to his director for The Night Manager, Susanne Bier.
Bier beat out other heavyweight nominees, including Jay Roach (All the Way), Noah Hawley (Fargo), Ryan Murphy (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story), Anthony Hemingway (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story) and John Singleton (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story), to take home the prize.
Just moments after Bier and Hiddleston exited the stage, the cameras panned to the orchestra pit, where, completely unexpectedly (and randomly!), Mayer, another one of Swift’s exes, was jamming out on a guitar.
Swift, 26, and Mayer, 38, briefly dated back in 2009, and even collaborated on 2010 hit “Half of My Heart.” Their split was a messy one, and was rumored to be the impetus behind Swift’s song “Dear John” off her Speak Now album.
Mayer then went on to date Swift’s frenemy Katy Perry on and off for two years before the pair called their relationship off for good in spring 2014.
Hiddleston, meanwhile, parted ways with Swift earlier this month after a whirlwind summer romance that included trips to Nashville, London, Rome and Australia.
