Emmy Awards Night has always been special and the reasons are more than winning the award. The speciality of the most prestigious award ceremony for excellence on television lies in its uniqueness. Here are some of those that you may have missed.
Tony Hale's Chivalry
Julia Louis-Dreyfus was joined by her "Veep" co-star Tony Hale when she accepted the Emmy award for being the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. Hale plays Gary Walsh in the sitcom, who is the personal assistant of Vice President Selina Meyer played by Julia. Hale did a Gary when he held her purse while she gave her acceptance speech.
Will Ferrell and Sons
Will Ferrell was in his true elements when he came on stage with his sons saying that he could not find a babysitter. He presented the award for the best comedy and drama series with his sons on stage. Will also joked that Maggie Smith and Helen Mirren backed out at the eleventh hour.
Kevin Spacey's Reaction
Kevin Spacey's hopes of winning the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series fell down just like a house of cards as he lost to Jeff Daniels ("The Newsroom"). However, he nailed it when he reacted to the camera. He thumped the camera with a piece of paper.
Elton John's Jacket
Sir Elton John sported a jacket from his olden days while paying a tribute to Liberace. It was "Home Again" that reminded him of Liberace, he said. Interestingly, it was Sir Elton's debut performance at the Emmys.
Stephen Colbert's Maiden Emmy
Stephen Colbert finally won the Emmy after running "The Daily Show" for a decade. He won it for Outstanding Variety Series. In his acceptance speech, he thanked Jon Stewart. He continued saying that people lied when they said they felt honoured to be nominated. "Winning is way better," he said.
Acceptance Speech of Merritt Wever
Arguably the most shocking part of the night, Merritt Wever was the first upset of the night at Emmys. It showed that she herself was not expecting a win. "Thank you so very much. Um, I gotta go, bye." she ended her brief encounter on stage.
