Heartfelt speeches. Dramatic smooches. More Matthew McConaughey than anyone could handle ... Monday night's 66th Primetime Emmy Awards had a little bit of everything.
Here are the show's Top 5 moments:
1. REMEMBERING ROBIN: Billy Crystal capped off the traditional In-Memorian segment with a short and simple, yet emotionally powerful tribute to his dear friend Robin Williams.
With his voice quivering at times, Crystal recalled Williams as "the brightest star in a comedy galaxy." But more than that, he was a close confidant.
"He was the greatest friend you could ever imagine," Crystal said. "Supportive. Protective. Loving. It's very hard to talk about him in the past because he was so present in all of our lives."
2. SUCKING FACE: When Julia Louis-Dreyfus of "Veep" won her third straight Emmy as Best Actress in a Comedy, Bryan Cranston -- mustache and all -- intercepted her on the way to the stage and engaged her in a monumental lip-lock. (Shades of Adrien Brody and Halle Berry at the Oscars).
Suddenly, Louis-Dreyfus had no problem remembering that Cranston played a dentist who she once dated on "Seinfeld."
Longest TV kiss ever? It gets our vote.
3. I'M TOO SEXY: Presenter Jimmy Kimmel just couldn't understand what Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey was doing at the lowly Emmys.
"You just won the Oscar five months ago. No offense, but how many of those speeches are we supposed to sit through?" Kimmel wondered. "I mean, 'All right, all right, all right already.'"
And on it went. "You don't belong here," Kimmel said, chiding McConaughey for being too beautiful and not having a TV face. "And take Julia Roberts while you're at it."
4. COLBERT'S STAND-IN: After presenter Gwen Stefani pulled a Travolta and mispronounced "The Colbert Report" as "The Colbor Report," losing nominee Jimmy Fallon rushed to the stage and hijacked Colbert's acceptance speech:
"She said the name wrong. I want to see the envelope!" he demanded.
Fallon went on to deliver a speech as Colbert whipsered lines in his ear.
"I want to thank his wife and his children," Fallon said, before finally turning the mic over to the actual winner.
5. LOTS OF HEART: HBO's "The Normal Heart," a film about AIDS activists in the 1980s, as expected, captured the prize for best TV film. Upon accepting, director Ryan Murphy -- accompanied by ailing writer Larry Kramer -- delivered a moving speech that included a dedication to artists who have died from HIV/AIDS.
"Your memory and your passion burns on in us," he said.
