Another year, another Emmys telecast. There were some great wins, some upsets, and Modern Family dominated pretty much everything. Whether you missed it or watched and just blacked out, here are all those noteworthy, "water cooler moments" you missed.
We're going to say the number-one highlight moment was the presentation of Best Actress in a Comedy category (above). As the nominees were being read aloud, each of the women ran onstage as their names were read, and the show suddenly turned into the Miss America Pageant. (Supposedly, Amy Poehler masterminded the whole thing.) When Melissa McCarthy won, I found myself choking the tears back and feeling so proud for her, despite the fact that I've never once tuned in to Mike & Molly. We can pretend it was really given to her for Bridesmaids, right?
