Prolific producer Chuck Lorre was prepared for the best possible outcome at last Sunday's Primetime Emmy Awards.
The co-creator/executive producer behind The Big Bang Theory used the show's season seven premiere to release the acceptance speech he would have given had the series about a group of lovable nerds won its first best comedy Emmy.
Fey, who won an Emmy for comedy series writing for 30 Rock, told JimmyFallon on Thursday's LateNight that she had a bit of a "situation" when her name was called and she went to embrace fellow winner Tracey Wigfield.
Jon Hamm may have a polyp on his vocal cord, but he's not coughing up blood, he assured viewers on Wednesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live.
The Mad Men star said a recent report in The National Enquirer claimed he was coughing up blood and probably has cancer. Hamm, who noted that the procedure he's having to remove the polyp is "very routine," shot down the report, but admitted that it did create some concern in his family.
On Sunday, The Colbert Report ended The Daily Show's decade-long run of winning Outstanding Variety Series at the Emmys.
Stephen Colbert, who has reveled in his past Emmy wins and bemoaned his losses as his character on The Report, unsurprisingly devoted the opening segment of his first new show since the awards to his victory and vanquishing of Jon Stewart.
Sunday night's Emmys telecast was full of surprises: from upset wins to unexpected (and sometimes bizarre) dance numbers. The show also featured memorable tributes to late stars like Cory Monteith and James Gandolfini.
But by Monday morning, some of the show's most humorous moments were already circulating online as GIFs.
All of the Emmy statuettes have been given out, with Breaking Bad and Modern Family winning best drama and comedy series honors. HBO raked in the most awards (27), with stars Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom) and Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire) scoring upset wins in the lead and supporting actor drama categories. The premium network's Behind the Candelabra also led all shows with its 11 trophies, including a best actor in a movie or miniseries win for star Michael Douglas.
Sunday's CBS telecast of the 2013 Emmys jumped 33 percent from last year's audience, with final returns giving the kudos 17.6 million viewers -- its highest viewership since 2005. That year the show did not have to go up against football.
Michael Douglas had the audience laughing during his Emmys acceptance speech Sunday night before turning to a more serious note.
The Behind the Candelabra star, who won best actor in a movie or miniseries for playing Liberace in the HBO biopic, gave an innuendo-filled speech where he at first jokingly thanked fellow star MattDamon for his part in the "two-hander."
"You're only as good as your other hand," he quipped.
In the end, Netflix made history. Just not very much of it.
Netflix went into the65th Primetime Emmy Awards with 14 nominations, including best drama series for the political thriller House of Cards and nods to its stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright. While David Fincher earned an Emmy for directing the first chapter of House of Cards and the streaming service picked up a handful of Emmys at the Creative Arts gala Sept. 15, it was all but shut out of the major awards Sunday night.
HBO added to its haul Sunday during the Primetime portion of the 65th annual Emmys. Coming into the ceremony with 20 wins -- and 108 nominations overall -- HBO again led the pack with 27 overall wins.
On the series front, HBO made it a one-two punch with Behind the Candelabra and Boardwalk Empire. Entering the night as the top program with eight wins during last week's Creative Arts ceremony, Candelabra added three to lead all series with 11, followed by the mob drama with five statuettes.
Playing Skyler White can't have been the easiest task for Breaking Bad actress Anna Gunn. Despite the critical acclaim, fans continue to lambaste the character on Twitter and elsewhere during every episode.
If it ever bothered her before, it likely won't any longer now that she finally scored a supporting actress nod for her work during Sunday's Emmys.
