Seth Meyers' best jokes from the 2014 Emmys

NBC decided to hold the Emmys a month earlier, in August,” began host Seth Meyers, about a third of the way through his opening monologue, “to avoid conflicting with Sunday Night Football. Which is keeping with the actors’ tradition of running away from jocks.”

Then he continued, aptly considering the muted response, “Jokes are like nominees: They can’t all be winners.”

That’s certainly true, though Meyers had a decent enough success rate during the evening. These were the best lines of the lot. READ FULL STORY

Julia Louis-Dreyfus wins third Lead Actress in a Comedy Emmy

On Monday night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, Julia Louis-Dreyfus accepted her third Primetime Emmy for her performance as Selina Meyer on Veep. After accepting the award, she passionately kissed Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston, with whom she had joked a few moments earlier about his recurring role on Seinfeld as her character’s boyfriend, Tim Whatley.

“I have to say, [Veep] is very dense, as you might notice,” Louis-Dreyfus said in her acceptance speech. “It’s a huge labor of love, and every labor of love takes a lot of labor … this one in particular. I want to thank everyone on this show for having such extraordinary grace under pressure and for having so much fun.”

The other actresses nominated in the same field were Lena Dunham (Girls), Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie), Melissa McCarthy (Mike & Molly), Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation), and Taylor Schilling (Orange Is the New Black).

Seth Meyers on hosting the Emmys: 'We're going to try to bring a little New York to L.A.'

Seth Meyers usually plays host to a TV star or two each night on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers. But on Monday, he’ll play host to hundreds of them—and all of tube-obsessed America—as he emcees the small screen’s biggest night: The Emmys, which air on NBC at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

On a scale of one to 10, how pants-wetting nervous will Meyers be when he walks out on stage at the Nokia Theatre? “Oh, I think I‘ll be high 9s. But I’m happy it’s the same physical space as the ESPYs,” says Meyers, who hosted the sports awards show in 2011. “For me, the most nerve-racking is the first time in a space. It’s a different audience and a different set, but at least down in the caverns of the building, the hallways are the same. And I know where the bathroom is, so that’s good.”

EW spoke with the former SNL head writer and Weekend Update anchor about what to expect when he goes live from L.A. on Emmy night. (Fans of Game of Thrones and other quality shows: Catch up on unwatched episodes before tuning in. Or reading on.) READ FULL STORY
