2010 Emmys video highlights

  • 1comments

With big wins for Modern Family, Glee, Jane Lynch, Temple Grandin and Archie Panjabi at this year's Emmy Awards, there were numerous hilarious highlights through the show that made sure the audience's attention did not waver.

We've gathered a few of the best bits together here for you, to give you a sneak peek into the fun that was had!

Let's kick this off with Betty White's opening to her Emmy Award-winning appearance on Saturday Night Live.

As a performer who is nearing her 90th birthday, she has the ability to hold the crowd in ways that performers a quarter of her age can only dream of. A very well deserved award!

The epic Glee-inspired opening had the audience on their feet, revelling in the joyous campery of the song and dance routines.

The Betty White love continues in this one too -- her "back it up, back it up" had us rolling in the aisles.

Add Tina Fey, Jorge Garcia, Jon Hamm and a Kate Gosselin send-up to the mix, and it was one of the best Emmy openings for years.

The song-and-dance extravaganza continued with a eulogy for all of the "lost" shows of the last year, including (appropriately), Lost, 24 and Law & Order.

At the very least, you cannot fail to be impressed by Jimmy Fallon's ability to complete a quick costume change!

Two of the big winners of the night, Jim Parsons of The Big Bang Theory, who won the Best Actor award, and Sofia Vergara of Modern Family, who took the Best Comedy gong, announced the winner of the Writing for a Comedy Series award.

It would appear that Sofia only has to speak, in order to have people in hysterics.

The Modern Family love continues with a parody "reboot" featuring an appearance by Stewie from Family Guy and the silver fox that is George Clooney.

The Office's Ricky Gervais lynches the teetotal Emmy's, Kiefer Sutherland's alcoholism, Mel Gibson's anti-semitism and the B-listers that grace the world of television. And the audience love him for it.

It seems only appropriate that the last word on the event goes to Hitler, in a ubiquitous Downfall meme, despairing the failure of Lost in the Emmy line-up.

Well done to all of the winners of the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards -- it was a great overview of all the great television content we've had on offer this year!
