Claire Danes gave an animated acceptance speech for her win Sunday night in L.A. at the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards at the Nokia Theatre. The actress won the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Movie award for her role in Temple Grandin. But Claire wasn’t the only star who was overjoyed “like, for serious” at the Emmys as there were plenty of memorable moments!
Eric Stonestreet of Modern Family was brought to tears during his acceptance speech for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. Al Pacino was so passionate about his win for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries for You Don’t Know Jack that he wanted to thank everybody — and then some! And Kyra Sedgwick wanted to make sure she read her acceptance sheet perfectly so she handed off her Emmy to Tina Fey to hold!
But perhaps our favorite moment of the night was Jimmy Fallon‘s tribute to the shows that came to an end this year, including 24, Law & Order and Lost by singing like Sir Elton John, Boyz II Men and Green Day.
Or, anything featuring Betty White is also good fun!
