Amid all the celebrations and laughter during Sunday night's 2014 Emmy Awards, there was one larger-than-life presence that was sorely missed: the late, great Robin Williams. And following the annual In Memoriam segment to honor the famous faces we've lost over the last year, Billy Crystal took the stage to honor his longtime friend and fellow comedian in a moving and heartfelt tribute.
The 2014 Emmy Awards skewed a little hipper this year, with host Seth Meyers and his army of comedically inclined friends providing more laughs than your average stodgy awards show. However, the ceremony went full internet-friendly when Weird Al Yankovic, hot off the first number one album of his lengthy career, took to the stage to provide your favorite TV shows with the one thing they so desperately need: lyrics.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus walked away with the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for 'Veep' at the 2014 Emmys, but not before making out with 'Seinfeld' guest star Bryan Cranston in front of the stage.
While most people appearing on stage at the 2014 Emmy Awards bent over backwards to be polite and respectable and as totally inoffensive as possible, comedian Billy Eichner doesn't care! The internet video celebrity and 'Parks and Recreation' co-star brought his delightful 'Billy on the Streets' series to the stodgy ceremony and now the rest of the show has to live up to it.
Well, no major changing of the guard here, as actor Jim Parsons tonight takes home the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series award at the 2014 Emmy Awards for his role as brilliant 'Big Bang Theory' egghead Sheldon Cooper.
Fans of Seth Meyers from 'Saturday Night Live' and his still-young stint as host of 'Late Night' know that this is a performer perfectly suited for hosting the Emmys. Capable of leaping between sweet and sarcastic at a moment's notice while barely changing his signature dry delivery, Seth Meyers opened the 2014 Emmys ceremony with a monologue that could have come straight from one of his own shows.
The 2014 Emmy winners were announced during Monday's awards ceremony, broadcast on NBC and hosted by 'SNL' vet and 'Late Night' show host Seth Meyers. While there are always a fair share of shockers -- like how last year saw 'The Newsroom' star Jeff Daniels beating out Bryan Cranston for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama -- everyone had their eyes on 'Breaking Bad,' given it finished its final season late last year, HBO's breakout hit 'True Detective,' Netflix's 'Orange Is the New Black' and FX's buzzed-about 'Fargo' series.
If you want to see Cersei Lannister throw a bucket of ice water over her head in support of ALS awareness -- who knew she had a charitable side, right? -- or Jon Snow or even George R.R. Martin himself, watch the stars and creator of 'Game of Thrones' perform the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

20 years ago, 'My So-Called Life' thrashed and pouted its way onto television screens -- an antidote for the deadly case of the warm and fuzzies we were collectively suffering from all those family sitcoms and all those pleasant lessons they taught us in 30-minute spurts each week. It was a show for everyone: for the angst-ridden and misunderstood teens, for the tweens emerging into what we now call "all of the feels," and for the parents trying to reconcile their struggles with the struggles of their own children. It was the first series to portray teenage life with such brilliant, shaded honesty, that showed us that our youth wasn't disaffected, but deeply, terribly affected. 20 years later, 'My So-Called Life' still resonates; whether you're 28 or 15, you can see yourself painfully reflected in Angela Chase's insecurities and heartaches.
