Missed the Emmys last night or just want to relive them? Click on a tab for some quick highlights or read below for a no-frills play-by-play:

For the show opener, Black Eyed Peas joined Earth, Wind & Fire for a version of the track "September" that touched on some of the many topics within the entertainment industry, including the long-running Michael Jackson trial where he was found not guilty, as well as the Martha Stewart trial where she was found guilty but then came back with two shows. The evening's host, Ellen DeGeneres, gave a backward pep talk to those who might not win, pointing out, "Hey let's be realistic, most of you will not win tonight," and claimed that didn't mean they weren't good people; they were just bad actors. DeGeneres also paid tribute to the victims of Hurricane Katrina and her hometown of New Orleans and family in Mississippi by wearing a magnolia for the victims.

First up, the ladies of Desperate Housewives presented the first award of Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy. Winner Brad Garrett dedicated his award to Britney and her baby.

Kyra Sedgwick of The Closer and Kiefer Sutherland of 24 awarded the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series to William Shatner for his character of Denny Crane in Boston Legal.

Next up, DeGeneres introduced a new addition to the Emmys: Emmy Idol. This included performances of four popular television theme songs, which fans at home got to vote for online. Donald Trump and Megan Mullally, who was in character as Karen Walker from Will & Grace, gave a hilarious performance to the tune for Green Acres.

From Two and a Half Men, Jon Cryer and Charlie Sheen (trying to look gracious instead of angry, crestfallen, and embittered for not being nominated) presented the award for Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety Or Music Program to Hugh Jackman as host for the 58th Annual Tony Awards.

Then came a quick clip of the ever-talented Michael J. Fox, with shots of his past career moves and Emmy wins.

Blue Man Group then put on an interesting performance to present the award for Reality-Competition Program to winner The Amazing Race.

Zach Braff of Scrubs and Hugh Laurie of House presented the award for Supporting Actress in a Drama Series to Blythe Danner for her role of Isabelle "Izzy" Huffstodt on the Showtime original series Huff, making it her first Emmy win.

Jason Lee of the upcoming comedy My Name is Earl and Debra Messing of Will & Grace joined together to present the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie to Paul Newman for Empire Falls.

Lauren Graham from Gilmore Girls and Jennifer Love Hewitt from the upcoming drama Ghost Whisperer, presented the award for Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie to Jane Alexander in Warm Springs.

Alyson Hannigan and Neil Patrick Harris from How I Met Your Mother introduced the second Emmy Idol performance, the theme song for Fame performed by Kristen Bell of Veronica Mars, complete with leg warmers and backup dancers.

Rachel Bilson of The O.C. and Chris O'Donnell of Head Cases presented the award for Guest Actor and Guest Actress in a Comedy Series. Bobby Cannavale took home the award for Guest Actor and Kathryn Joosten for Guest Actress. They then presented the award for Outstanding Directing for Variety, Music, or Comedy Program to Bucky Gunts for The Games of the XXVIII Olympiad. Last, but not least, the award for Writing for Variety, Music or Comedy Program went to the team from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

Adrian Grenier from Entourage and Mischa Barton from The O.C. presented the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series to Doris Roberts for Everybody Loves Raymond.

David Letterman then appeared to pay tribute to the great Johnny Carson. Letterman remembered that when Carson was asked, "What made you a star?" Carson replied, "I started out in a gaseous state and then I cooled." Letterman then declared that Johnny Carson's star never cooled. This introduction was then followed by clips of the Johnny Carson show through the years, including the ever-touching duet with Bette Midler.

The cast of Everybody Loves Raymond then gathered onstage, thankful that they didn't have the pressure to be funny up there due to their show being over. Brad Garrett then held up his just-won Emmy and stated that they should be kind of funny because there might be a spin-off series, in which the star of Raymond would be recast, much to Raymond's chagrin. Among other jokes, Doris Roberts laughed giddily and confessed that she's been drunk since the wrap party. They then presented the award for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series to The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Within his thank-you speech, Stewart made a heartfelt statement about David Letterman, stating that the way David Letterman feels about Johnny Carson is the way that he and most other comedians feel about him (Letterman).

Portia de Rossi of Arrested Development introduced the third Emmy Idol performance. The theme song of The Jeffersons (which premiered 30 years ago), "Movin' on Up," was performed by CSI's Gary Dourdan and songstress Macy Gray.

DeGeneres then appeared with a giant sparkler and a unicycle to introduce the star of Medium, Patricia Arquette. Arquette announced the winners of the award for Outstanding Guest Actor and Actress in a Drama Series (given in the Creative Arts Ceremony last week), Ray Liotta and Amanda Plummer.

Ray Liotta stuck around to present the award for Outstanding Directing in a Drama Series to J.J. Abrams for Lost.

Liotta then presented the award for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series to David Shore for House. He thanked those who have made him angry and bitter in life, "because the character of House would not be the same without them, and they know who they are."

Halle Berry presented the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie to Geoffrey Rush for The Life and Death of Peter Sellers.

DeGeneres then turned up again and went into the ladies bathroom with a monitor to let those in the bathroom know what they were missing (which turned out to just be DeGeneres in the bathroom with the monitor).

Grey's Anatomy Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey then presented the award for Outstanding Directing for Miniseries, Movie or Dramatic Special to Stephen Hopkins for The Life and Death of Peter Sellers. They then presented the award for Outstanding Writing for a Miniseries, Movie or Dramatic Special to Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely for The Life and Death of Peter Sellers.

Geena Davis from the upcoming Commander-In-Chief and Matthew Fox from Lost then presented the award for Lead Actress in Miniseries or Movie to S. Epatha Merkerson, her first nomination and win. She laughingly stated that she had stuck her thank-you notes in her dress earlier and it had since fallen deeper into her dress and out of reach.

Jon Stewart came out afterward and joked that he too had written something down and then motioned to reach into his pants. Stewart was then hilariously edited while he went on a tirade about how the government handled the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. He then presented the Award for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series to Charles McDougall for Desperate Housewives. Stewart then presented the award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series to Mitchell Hurwitz and Jim Vallely for Arrested Development. They stated that they have now been twice awarded for something "you people won't watch." So tune in Monday.

Quentin Tarantino and Marg Helgenberger from CSI then presented the award for Outstanding Made for Television Movie to Warm Springs.

The host of Survivor, Jeff Probst, and the host of The Amazing Race, Phil Keoghan, came up to present the next Emmy Idol performance. William Shatner performed the Star Trek theme, but thankfully spared us the singing of the various notes--a professional mezzo-soprano was brought in for that.

Mariska Hargitay from Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Jimmy Smits from The West Wing then presented the award for Outstanding Miniseries to The Lost Prince, Masterpiece Theatre.

Chairman and CEO of the Television Academy, Dick Astin, and Alan Alda then presented a tribute to Tom Brokaw, Dan Rather, and the late Peter Jennings, declaring they were anchors for our country in more ways than one. Tom Brokaw and Dan Rather came out to a more than well-deserved extended standing ovation. They spoke about their personal relationship with Jennings and that he had said, "Yes, we are friends," and then he had laughed, adding, "because we didn't see each other very much."

Not to be outdone by previous Emmy Idol performances, Conan O'Brien came out and began to sing the theme for Charles in Charge. Thankfully cutting that short, he then presented the award for Outstanding Lead Actress for a Comedy Series to Felicity Huffman for Desperate Housewives.

James Spader then presented the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series to Patricia Arquette for Medium, making this her first nomination and win.

The In Memoriam reel was displayed next, and it paid tribute to those in the entertainment industry who had passed away earlier this year.

Sela Ward from House and Craig Ferguson from The Late Late Show presented the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series to Tony Shaloub for Monk.

Charles S. Dutton of Threshold then presented the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series to James Spader for Boston Legal.

Tyler James Williams from the upcoming Everybody Hates Chris joined his young friend Charles Evers onstage. Evers was a resident of New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina struck. Evers stated that Sister, Sister and SpongeBob SquarePants were his favorite television shows. He and Williams called upon America to contact Habitat for Humanity to help those victims in need.

DeGeneres then announced the winner of Emmy Idol: Donald Trump and Megan Mullally. The camera flashed to a shot of William Shatner, pretending to be shocked and disappointed at his loss.

Hugh Jackman and Whoopi Goldberg then presented the award for Outstanding Drama Series to Lost, followed by the award for Outstanding Comedy Series to Everybody Loves Raymond.

I think that many awards did go to the wrong person, not even in Emmy Idol could the right person win, i cant belive that green acres, won ,the only one that was worse that that one was Star Trek.
Kristen Bell, Fame should have won, she jumped around dancing, Trump And Megan was just standing stil, and i doesnt think that they sang good at all.

Patricia Arquette's win was such a nice surprise. Her down to earth personification of a mother coming to terms with her psychic powers is like no other performance on tv: each week we are given a wonderfully understated, intelligent, and insightful performance.
Keep watching.

In my book everyone is a winner and there are no losers....I think its fun to watch the show because of all the great celebrities that we get to see. I was lucky to be at the Oscars in 2000 and what a thrill to be there and to see the stars!!

24 should have won the Best Drama. It is far and away the best show on television today. I was pleased that House's "Three Stories" won for outstanding writing in a drama series, I loved that episode. Kiefer Sutherland should have won as well.

The results were rediculous, especially for lead Actress and Actor in a drama series, Mariska Hargitay is a far greater talent than Patricia Arquette and Hugh Laurie is phenomenal in House, but yet both were overlooked.

The only upside to the night was Geoffry Rush, taking out the Best Actor in a Mini Series or movie. And Hugh Jackman for host of a variety etc...Go the Aussies!

GAH! Red carpet robbery people! James Spader as best actor?! What the heck?! NO! Hugh Laurie!! He is AMAZING as Dr. House! I mean, I would have maybe understood if Kiefer had (Finally, after years of nominations)won. BUT SPADER?!

I completely agree with Kyle_anderton there's no way Shatner/Spader should have taken the Emmys. Personal favorite and who got screwed Terry O'Quin n should have not only won the Emmy but win a new category for TV's most impressive, engaging, and must-watch character! Ian McShane totally got screwed but Emmy loves David Kelley characters year after year. McShane should already have one under his belt. Or Hugh Laurie, both Laurie/McShane should have split the Emmy in my opinion not Spader at all granted he's a talented actor himself.

Before I get to the ceremony, let us not forget to congratulate "South Park" for picking up it's first Emmy win for the episode "BFF" which parodied the Terri Schiavo saga.

As far as Drama goes, Shatner and Spader deserved their awards, especially Spader who submitted the episode "Death Be Not Proud" which was very powerful. I think I speak for all of us when I say, how the heck did Arquette pull off that win? She submitted a mediocre episode from a mediocre show. And I was surprised "Lost" took home Best Drama. I mean, I've read tremendous things about it but it was a first year series that had no trouble being renewed because of it's high ratings and it had that supernatural element to it which doesn't usually do well at the Emmys. Anyone remember "Twin Peaks"?

As much as I love Brad Garrett and think he's truly a comedic genious, there were other people who should've won that Emmy. If you can get over the fact that Jeffrey Tambor and (especially) Jeremy Piven were terrific, I think that award should have gone to Peter Boyle. He's been constantly nominated and never won and is now the only regular cast member of "Raymond" never to take home a trophy for his work on the show. I also love Doris Roberts but when I heard her name called I thought to myself, "Thank God "Raymond" is over with so now people that actually should be winning will have a better chance of getting on stage." I was very happy that "Desperate Housewives" and "Arrested Development" took home directing and writing respectively and I expected Shalhoub to win since he submitted the episode, "Mr. Monk Takes His Medicine" which was a very good episode for him. I was truly shocked that Huffman won Lead Actress because she submitted the pilot episode and that really wasn't the best submission. However, Huffman had some good scenes on the episodes that Teri Hatcher and Marcia Cross submitted, so that must have put her on top. All I can say is, AT LEAST TERI HATCHER DIDN'T WIN!!! And even though I expected "Housewives" to win best comedy, I wasn't really shocked that "Raymond" took it home for it's final season, joining the ranks with "Barney Miller" and "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" as the only shows to be awarded a best series Emmy for their final season.

Am I the only person around who actually loved "Empire Falls"? I guess so because every prediction chart around was saying "Falls" would win mini-series but that it a terrible piece of manuer that they couldn't stand to watch. Paul Newman deserved his Emmy though and from what I read "The Lost Prince" really did deserve to win. As expected Geoffrey Rush picked up a statuette for his uncanny portrayal of Peter Sellers in "Life and Death of Peter Sellers" and I was also happy with the movie winning writing and directing for a movie, but for writing I was actually hoping that "The Office Special" would take it since it really is difficult to write great comedy and have it transfer the same way to television. I loved that "Warm Springs" took best movie but I was most overjoyed when S. Epatha Merkerson won her award because she was AMAZING in "Lackawanna Blues".

For variety, let's be honest, STOP AWARDING THE OLYMPICS EVERY TWO YEARS!!! Just because it takes a lot to do the coverage doesn't necessarily mean it's something of merit. "The Daily Show" won again in writing and variety program and let's be honest, it deserved it. Hugh Jackman deserved his Emmy because not only was he hosting the Tony's, he also performed and did a tremendous job. Why do you think he was asked to do it for a third time this past June?

That's all I have to say.

I agree with Dunnamo, Hugh Laurie should of won. Even though I'm not surprised he didn't win because James Spader won last year and we all know that Emmy's only vote for people they've voted for before.

everyone knows that Veronica Mars deserved an emmy nod! it better get one next year.....but i am happy about lost, arested development, and Raymond finally leaving so it doesn't have to nominate the same people every year that don't deserve it as much as all the other snubbed people

Gah! Great show. But I can't believe that "Everybody Loves Raymond" got the award for Outstanding Comedy Series. I can't find anything outstanding with that show? It should of course have gone to "Desperate Housewives"! I really enjoyed Kristen Bells performance of Fame and Donald Trump and Megan Mulally where very funny indeed.

I thought that overall, the show was lackluster... some nice points, some truly bad (Trump) but not sparkly, not awful... just OK.

I was truly happy for both Felicity Huffman and S. Epatha and they both seemed genuinely surprised and very sincere in their speeches.

As a devoted House Fan, I was disappointed that Hugh Laurie did not win, but not surprised that Spader did (I had read some polls that had Spader in the lead, some with Kiefer, and some with Hugh)

I was shocked and disappointed that Patricia Arquette won over more worthy contenders like Glenn Close, Mariska Hargitay, and my personal choice, the wonderful Frances Conroy from 6FU.

My favorite moments in the show were the Johnny Tribute done by Dave and the nice words that John Stewart had for Dave during his acceptance speech directly afterwards.

Ellen's funniest moments were in the beginning, "Watch for me to host the North Korean People's Choice awards" - but the funniest person of the night was Conan O'Brien - both for his writing team nomimation "scroll" and for his "Charles in Charge" song... Perhaps he should host next time...

Personally, MAREN HATES RAYMOND... and am very glad that this show has ended and that these people will not win Emmys every year and other shows will get a chance.

And now - on to another new season....

I think that so much went wrong at the Emmys last night. Although I was rooting for Teri Hatcher (or Marcia Cross) to win, Felicity Huffman's win didn't upset me -- I was actually quite happy for her -- it just surprised me, as it did her. By listening to her speech, you could tell that even she was surprised that she'd win. By seeing Garrett & Roberts' wins for "Raymond," you'd think that Patricia Heaton would take home her 3rd Emmy, but we all knew better because she had 3 Housewives to defeat. As long as a Housewife won, I was fine, and one of them did, so I'm happy.

Tony Shalhoub's win kinda upset & shocked me. I was rooting for Ray Romano to win.

Everybody Loves Raymond's win for Outstanding Comedy Series kinda upset me, but it didn't shock me. I was rooting for Desperate Housewives the entire night, but by the time Brad Garrett & Doris Roberts won, I kinda figured what would happen.

The thing that just pissed me off so much was Patrica Arquette's win; Mariska Hargitay deserved that Emmy so much more. I was shocked & disgusted with that.

I was rooting for James Spader & William Shatner, so I'm glad that they won; I was however shocked at Spader's win because I thought that Hugh Laurie.

I was also cheering for Whoopi Goldberg to win, but she lost to Hugh Jackman. Oh well!

S. Epatha Merkerson's win excited me as well. Her speech was so hilarious!

Those are my thoughts.

These Emmy's ****ed hard. The only deserving things that won were Arrested Development for Best Writing and LOST for Best Drama.

Terry O'Quinn should have had supporting actor drama nailed. Jeff Tambor should have had supporting actor comedy. CCH Pounder should have won supporting actress drama. Jessica Walter should have had supporting actress comedy. Kiefer Sutherland should have gotten lead actor drama. Jason Bateman or Zach Braff should have gotten leading comedy. Glenn Close should have won lead actress drama.

These Emmy's were absolutely embarrassing.

Personnaly I wouldn't have given Everybody Loves Raymond an Emmy for anything - especially over the actors from Lost or over Desperate Housewives. And I would've nominated some of the cast of Battlestar Galactica (they better get their due next year!) as well as the writers of South Park.
