When Jimmy Kimmel decided to pull a prank on Twitter during Sunday night's 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, Tracy Morgan didn't hesitate to help out. Actually, he was more than willing: He suggested taking his shirt off for the bit — something Kimmel (probably wisely) decided to nix.
Morgan wasn't the only one who quickly answered Kimmel's call for help with this year's awards show. Stars from Girls' Lena Dunham and Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul to singer Josh Groban and the reality emcees who butchered the Emmys as hosts five years ago all went beyond the call of duty. Jimmy Kimmel Live! co-head writers Molly McNearney (who in her spare time is also Kimmel's fiancée) and Gary Greenberg gave TV Guide Magazine some exclusive tidbits on how this year's Emmy laughs came together...
Scorching temperatures didn't prevent TV's biggest stars from dressing to the nines for the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Sunday. Check out our arrivals gallery to see what Christina Hendricks, Zooey Deschanel, Ashley Judd and others wore as they made their way down the red carpet.
No matter how hard they try to liven it up, and no matter how many winners they rudely play off the stage (Julianne Moore? The nerve!), the Emmy Awards remains a stubborn lumbering elephant of a show, the least likely of its type ever to win an Emmy itself, often just lying there — like Tracy Morgan in the Epic Fail of a stunt from which this year's show never really recovered. Time management was so lousy that in the mad rush to end on time, Modern Family didn't get to finish celebrating its third consecutive Best Comedy win before the lights went out.
Will Mad Men become the first drama to five-peat? Can anyone beat Bryan Cranston and Claire Danes? We'll find out Sunday at the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards. But for now, let's make our best educated guesses at who will walk away with the big prizes. Check out the list of nominees, make your picks and see if they match up with ours.
