The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards were kosher, at best, with Seth Meyers delivering a few standout moments. In a show that honors a million categories (and, thankfully, presents half of them a week earlier at a ceremony called the Creative Arts Emmy Awards), there wasn't much time for long show tunes or witty banter, but Hollywood still found a way. Weird Al showed up to provide a decent musical comedy bit. Sara Bareilles performed a beautiful version of "Smile" during the In Memorium. Plenty of presenters stumbled to create memorable moments (with Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Bryan Cranston winning). It became a night of a few surprises (Kathy Bates beating Julia Roberts?) and tearful farewells (Billy Crystal's tribute to Robin Williams stole the show). And, at the end, AMC's Breaking Bad enjoyed its swan song as it won it the night's highest honor.
