Emmys highlights include opening skit 'Born to Run'
Tuesday 31 August 2010
The three-hour Emmys award ceremony for US television shows on August 29, which was watched by 13.5 million viewers, has been reviewed by media outlets and bloggers who selected highlights of the 62nd annual show besides the big winners and new shows
Mad Men, and HBO productions which received 25 awards.
One of the best moments was the opener with emcee Jimmy Fallon, late night talk show host. It featured Glee cast members including Coach Sue Sylvester (Emmy winner Jane Lynch).
Also performing in the Glee-like number was Tina Fey ( Date Night, 30 Rock), Jon Hamm ( Mad Men), Jorge Garcia ( Lost), and more, who sang and danced a rendition of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run," receiving a standing ovation from the audience.

Other moments included presenter Ricky Gervais ( The Invention of Lying) handing beers to the audience as a send-up of his Golden Globes skit. Also, George Clooney (winner of the Bob Hope Humanitarian Award) showed up in a skit in bed with Modern Family cast members.
Comedic introductions of winners by comedian John Hodgman, a contributor to The Daily Show, the parody news show on Comedy Central, are reprinted in New York magazine: http://nymag.com/daily/entertainment/2010/08/john_hodgman_emmys.html
