On Sunday night, one of the most award events took place at Nokia Theatre. The 66th Annual Emmy Awards were a complete celebration of this year’s silver screen stars.
The host, Seth Meyers, handled his job pretty well while stars of all calibers lines up on the stage to either receive or give away the coveted award. Various couture creations and suits of all sizes and shine were shown off and the audience was mesmerized for hours.
Early into the show, Amy Poehler (or Beyoncé, if you take Myers’ jokes seriously) presented Ty Burrell with the award for Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his work on Modern Family. The award for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series went to famous comedian Louis C.K. for his hit show Louis. Louis has been nominated 30 times and this is his sixth win. Now, that’s an accomplishment.
The Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series award went to Allison Janney for her work on the hit series Mom.
Gail Mancuso won for Best Directing in a Comedy Series for his work on Modern Family and no one was surprised when Jim Parsons was awarded for his acting on The Big Bang Theory, yet again.
The award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series went to Julia Louis Dreyfuss for her, obviously, lead role in Veep.
Kathy Bates won for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie for her fantastic work on American Horror Story: Coven and her series colleague Jessica Lange won for Lead Actress.
Steven Moffat won for his writing on the hit miniseries Sherlock. Martin Freeman, who was not there, got an award for his work in Sherlock. Stephen Colbert accepted the award in his honor. Like his buddy Watson, Sherlock aka Benedict Cumberbatch was not present at the award show to accept the award for Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie.
Gwen Stefani presented the Best Variety Series award and flubbed the pronunciation of the winning show’s (The Colbert Report) title a little, and Sarah Silverman accepted her trophy for Best Writing Variety Special barefoot.
Aaron Paul won the Supporting Actor in a Drama award for his work in Breaking Bad. Julianna Margulies won for Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Alicia Florrick and Bryan Cranston got an award for Lead Actor in a Drama for his outstanding role as Walter White.
Modern Family won for Outstanding Comedy Series, and Halle Berry presented the award for Outstanding Drama Series to Breaking Bad.
Billy Crystal honored one of his closest friends, the late Robin Williams, while Sarah Barellies made the whole In Memoriam segment even more touching with her take on “Smile.”
The man who stole the show was definitely Weird Al Yankovic, who performed a musical theme song mash-up of Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Scandal, Modern Family and some other shows.
