The 2012 Emmys

Some of my favorite things about the 2012 Emmys:

Update: Thank you to my friend Jeff for reminding me that Daniel Faraday was a presenter, as he won Best Guest Actor, Drama, and I nearly freaked out, losing all brain function for a little while; I might have a small crush on Daniel Faraday (his real name is Jeremy Davies, FYI)
--Idaho, the great state I lived in for all of my formative years, was name-checked twice; first for Philo T. Farnsworth creating the television and therefore making the awards show possible, and then Aaron Paul, who won for Breaking Bad, shouted-out that he was just a kid from Idaho
--nerdy Jonathan from Buffy the Vampire Slayer becoming a screenwriter and winning an Emmy for Game Change
--Kevin Costner won, on whom I had a massive crush when I was about 10. See: Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
--my friend Jeff live-tweeted the event
--Jon Hamm sadly lost. Again. That's five in a row. I guess he'll have to settle for his beard.
--Julianne Moore's dress (yellow was a hot color, but hers was the BEST)

I'm glad I made your list of favorite things! Surprised you left off the taped bit with the Modern Family cast, that was gold! Especially compared to the rest of the "comedy" bits. I also loved seeing Daniel Faraday, who is completely insane.
