The Emmys recognise excellence in the television industry, but Beyoncé isn’t in the television industry so you can’t help but wonder how they’re going to entertain us for a couple of hours. Well, they gave it a good shot! Here are the bits of the 2014 Emmys that you're going to want to know about:
They may not have had Beyoncé, but they did have Amy Phoeler, who was introduced as Beyoncé by host Seth Meyers, and strutted up to the stage in true Beyoncé style:
Julie Louis-Dreyfus got a very unexpected kiss from Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston on the way up to accept her Emmy, which was very, very strange (he wanted to remind her of the time they kissed on Seinfield – awkward!)
This exchange between True Detective stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey:
Harrelson: "So you won an Oscar, Sexiest Man Alive, and now you want the Emmy too? I think that might be kinda a bit greedy.”
McConaughey: "You should have gratitude for what you have and not envy what I do.”
Harrelson: “Well, I’m grateful you had all the plagiarised parts."
Gwen Stefani messed up her words, which is always fun.
Sofia Vergara was made stand on a pedestal and spin, to give us something pretty to look at, which resulted in some serious backlash from feminists everywhere.
Julia Roberts got an awful shock when her face flashed on screen for no apparent reason.
Lena Dunham wore this dress:
Hayden Panettiere revealed she’s having a baby girl! Awh!
And Billy Crystal’s moving tribute to Robin Willams was definitely the highlight of the night.
And if you're wondering who won – Breaking Bad and Modern Family were big hits, but if you run into any of the cast from Orange Is The New Black – say nothin'. They didn't do so good!
