Jimmy Kimmel presented the second award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy series and he took the opportunity to give Matthew McConaughey a hard time. Kimmel teased him for gaining back the weight he lost for Dallas Buyers Club and for being greedy to want an Emmy five months after winning an Oscar. Capped off with "Alright, Alright, Alright, Already...now get out of here and take Julia Roberts with you." Speaking of Julia Roberts, it was disappointing that she did not win for the Normal Heart because she gave a powerful performance that deserved the recognition. The McConaughey jokes continued when the Modern Family writer won for comedy and said she had to look at McConaughey because if she looked at her cast, directors or producers, she would cry. The Normal Heart did receive recognition for best television movie and Ryan Murphy gave an impassioned but not preachy acceptance speech.
Billy Crystal paid homage to Robin Williams and said, "It's very hard to talk about him in the past because he was so present in all of our lives. For almost forty years he was the brightest star in a comedy galaxy."
Breaking Bad cleaned up with it's final season and Modern Family nabbed the top comedy award again.
Red carpet coverage was minimal due to the showtime. Preceding the full list of winners, are my best dress choices. Julia Roberts in a beaded Elie Saab and Kaley Cuoco's Monique Lhuillier are my favorites.
