Emmy Awards 2012: The Liveblog
9:54 - Weiss plays himself off. Best. Speech. Ever.
9:54 - And Gervais stays on stage for Best Variety, Music or Comedy Series. And yep, it's another Daily Show win. Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert fake-attack Jon Stewart from getting on stage, but we all know there's truth to every joke.
9:57 - "We were told we get a free sandwich after ten." - Jon Stewart. Also, a bunch of curse words about how stupid Emmy voters are that get bleeped out. Not bad.
10:02 - Sucks to be Jimmy Kimmel and have to still host after losing, but at least he didn't make a long joke about it that involved fake-kicking his parents out of the the -- nevermind.
10:03 - Year in Miniseries or Movie. The American Horror Stuff is so freaky, especially the Sarah Palin bits. And isn't it cute that Missing is considered an accidental miniseries?
10:04 - FYI: If Sherlock doesn't win everything, I'm leaving.
10:06 - Steve Buscemi is here to give Best Supporting Actress to Jessica Lange. For the record, I wrote that before she won, because duh.
10:06 - Jessica Lange had never met Ryan Murphy before he called her to be in American Horror Story. Between that and looking kick-ass in that dress at the age of 63, she really does have it all.
10:12 - Ellen makes a callback to that opening pretaped segment that I'd already forgotten about. She deserves better.
10:14 - Kerry Washington hands over the Best Supporting Actor in a Miniseries to Tom Berenger from Hatfields & McCoys.
10:16 - Oh my gosh, this speech is as boring as... Hatfields & McCoys. The Emmys tried playing him off for so long that the music got upbeat.
10:17 - In what I thought was another Breaking Bad joke, here's a sweet Andy Griffith Show tribute from Ron Howard.
10:18 - And now, the real In Memoriam.
10:22 - Well, that was really sad. Kinda makes me wish we could go back to Jimmy Kimmel fake-dying.
10:26 - Lucy Liu and Kiefer Sutherland are presenting together and not doing any sweet martial arts moves? The 2000s are sorely disappointed.
10:27 - And Gilmore Girls alum Danny Strong takes home the Writing trophy for Game Change. It was much better than Bunheads, in case you missed it. Good for you, Doyle. Also: Buffy.
