The 64th Primetime Emmy Awards will clock in at three hours of entertaining moments. Whether you caught the whole show or just tuned in for red carpet coverage and will catch up on YouTube, here’s a countdown of the top five highlights that had us laughing out loud.
5. Jimmy Kimmel’s Short & Sweet Opener

4. Seth McFarlane’s Stewie Screw-Up
The Family Guy creator took to the microphone to announce the reality show host winner. Too bad it was the wrong one. “This is what happens when you don’t come to rehearsal,” he said in the voice of Family Guy’s baby Stewie once he’d found the correct mic a few paces away. “That’s gonna be on YouTube.”
