You do not have to sit and watch for hours to see what happened during the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards. All you need to see are a couple of scenes that transpired during the biggest night on American television.
Here are some of the most memorable Emmy moments that will let you know how spectacular this year’s awards night was.
Classic Emmy Moments
That time when you mistake Terrence Howard (Empire) for Cuba Gooding Jr.
When you bring the real-life prosecutor as you date for the Emmys – you will surely be the butt of jokes.
“This must be very strange for you, right? Are you rooting for O.J. to win this time?” asked Jimmy Kimmel.
Sarah Paulson (Marcia Clark of The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story) is seen sitting with the real Marcia Clark.
It was a great night for David Mandel of Veep. First, he pulled out his valet parking ticket instead of his speech. Then he used his acceptance speech to get out of a volunteer commitment in his son’s school the next morning.
What a guy!
This false enmity between Jimmy Kimmel and Matt Damon – epic.
Matt kept on teasing Jimmy because he lost to John Oliver. Look at that face.
It is not unusual to be asked about what you are wearing on the red carpet. But it is unusual when you are too honest about it – like when Amy Schumer revealed she was wearing OB Tampons. TMI!
The moment when Leslie Jones asked for her Twitter account to be protected.
“I really appreciate all the hard work that you do. But let’s be real: Y’all are protecting something that nobody is trying to steal. Don’t nobody want to know about boring Emmy secrets,” said the Saturday Night Live star. “But since you’re good at keeping things safe, I’ve got a job for you: my Twitter account. Put that in the vault, please.”
Twirling Priyanka Chopra.
She obviously loved her dress.
When Jimmy Kimmel’s mom made Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches – which were delivered by “Stranger Things” of course…
…and Sofia Vergara had no reservations about eating one.
While most had PBJ sandwiches, Matt Damon got an apple from Kimmel’s mom.
This precious moment when Jon Snow proposed to Andy Samberg.
… and he said yes! (kidding)
This epic Tony Hale face.
Finally, John Mayer in the band.
C’mon people. These Emmy moments cannot get any better.
