Missed out on the buzziest moments from last night’s Emmy Awards because you were watching football or 60 Minutes? Never fear: EW is here with video of the ceremony’s most memorable bits and acceptance speeches. Though the show itself was far from unpredictable, there were a few surprises sprinkled throughout the night – especially courtesy of TV stars who weren’t afraid to do some unscripted clowning around.
The opening scene
You love Christina Hendricks, Mindy Kaling, Martha Plimpton, and Connie Britton – so what could be better than seeing all four of them, plus a few more divisive actresses (naked Lena Dunham eating birthday cake!), consoling Botox victim Jimmy Kimmel before the show? Bonus points for that dig at 2008’s Emmys host quintet.
The great speech switcheroo
In the past, Lead Actress in a Comedy nominees have brightened up the show by wearing a mustache to the awards and staging a fake beauty pageant as their category was announced. This year, the goofy tradition continued as winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus began to read her acceptance speech, then realized she had “accidentally” switched her remarks with a set written by fellow nominee Amy Poehler.
