Emmys 2010: Top 10 Moments to Remember

August 30, 2010 by  

The Emmys may be over, but we’re still talking about what went down Sunday night.

What were our favorite moments of the evening?

1. Ricky Gervais

Really, his little presentation could easily take up half the spots on the list.Was it the joke about angry celebs who shouldn’t be near alcohol? (“Mel Gibson…he’s been through a lot. Not as much as the Jews.”) His passing out beer to the audience? Or perhaps his sheer joy over the name Bucky Gunts — and Bucky Gunts subsequently taking home the Emmy.


2. Sofia Vergara declaring she’s a fan of “the big bang”

We’re still not sure if she meant the show THE BIG BANG THEORY or not, but hearing Vergara repeatedly say “big bang” and Jim Parsons being his adorable self, egging her on, made this one of the most memorable presenting duos of the night. (video included with number 3.)

3. “We’re on a horse”

Asking comedy writers when they got their first laugh or if comedy is sexy should be funny. Thankfully for us, their answers were hysterical, but we’re not sure anything can top MODERN FAMILY’s Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd parodying the “Old Spice” commercial.


4. A Conan joke on NBC. “Too soon?”

“NBC asking the host of LATE NIGHT to come to Los Angeles to host a different show — what could possible go wrong?,” host Jimmy Fallon asks, before the camera pans to former TONIGHT SHOW host Conan O’Brien. Conan was a good sport…as always.


5. Nudge, nudge. Wink, wink.

NPH congratulates Jimmy Fallon on being the second gay Emmy host in a row. Point – Doogie!

6. Betty White and Jon Hamm’s sexual chemistry

When we saw Betty White schooling Jon Hamm with some hard hitting dance moves in the Emmy’s Opening Number, we knew they were a mismatch made in heaven. When the adorable twosome took the stage together to present, they proved that age is no obstacle when it comes to chemistry.

7. Jane Lynch Kisses Ass

Talk about brown nosing the boss. GLEE star Jane Lynch got a good laugh when she thanked her “Lord and creator, Ryan Murphy, for creating this role of a lifetime!” Don’t feed his ego too much, Jane.

8. Everyone is GLEE-ful!

We all knew the GLEE kids would be showcasing their talents during the broadcast, but what really kicked the Emmy opening number up a notch was the ensemble Fallon was able to bring together for the event. Who knew we’d get singing and dancing from Tina “I’m BFF with the host” Fey, Jon “I’m such a ham” Hamm, Jorge “Dude, my name is Jorge, not Hurley” Garcia, Joel “Community was robbed” McHale and Nina “Who said the CW would never be at the Emmys” Dobrev. Loved every minute of it. The only thing that was missing was some awkward dancing by Courtney Cox Arquette.


9. Jimmy pays tribute to the “fallen” shows.

LOST, 24, and LAW AND ORDER were pretty much denied Emmy wins this year, but at least they had Jimmy Fallon paying his respects to their time on the air by channeling Elton John, Boyz II Men and Green Day.


10. George Clooney guest-stars in a MODERN FAMILY skit.

George Clooney may be a big-time movie star now, but everyone on MODERN FAMILY wants him to play their love interest. Julie Bowen is willing to knock off her TV husband to make it happen. Sofia Vergara is willing to get rid of her TV man as well as Julie Bowen. But Cam and Mitchell get the last laugh when they score Clooney in their bed. Check out the MODERN FAMILY Emmy skit featuring George Clooney here.

    These are the ones I would highlight as well. I thought this year’s event was really well done. Liked the closing too “Party at Betty White’s House!”
