“Thank you so much. Um, I gotta go. Bye.” So said Nurse Jackie’s Merritt Wever in what had to be the shortest (and quite possibly the best) Emmy Awards speech of all time. Wever was one of several surprise winners of the night, along with a gum-chewing Jeff Daniels and Boardwalk Empire’s Bobby Cannavale. Modern Family and Breaking Bad took home top prizes in comedy and drama, but the rest of the night was filled with upsets. Here’s a list of the six biggest upsets of the night. And here’s a list of all the winners. The show itself was pretty forgettable, but it was interesting to see the multiple (well-deserved) wins for the Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra, Michael Douglas’ innuendo-filled acceptance speech, and Elton John’s comments preceding his song dedicated to Liberace: “It’s a feeling of being at peace and being yourself. Liberace left us 25 years ago – and what a difference those years have made to people like me.” The TV industry and its customers have come a long way since Ellen first came out. These days, Hollywood is almost as comfortable with homosexuality as the pope.

+ The Daily Beast has a collection of video highlights from the evening.

+ Netflix shows didn’t take home too many statues, but the service was still one of the night’s big winners. Breaking Bad showrunner Vince Gilligan explains why his show’s victory is shared by Netflix: “I think Netflix kept us on the air. Not only are we standing up here, I don’t think our show would have even lasted beyond season two … It’s a new era in television, and we’ve been very fortunate to reap the benefits.”

+ Jeff Daniels opened his acceptance speech with the words, “Oh crap.” I imagine that’s how editors at the Louisville Courier-Journal felt when they realized they had published a reader letter that was really a monologue from Newsroom.

+ And finally, the line of the night goes to my wife: “If Jon Hamm can’t pull off a beard, every other man should just start shaving.”
