The 2012 Emmy Awards had no shortage of fun quirky moments. From John Stewart's major F-bomb to Tracy Morgan "passing out on stage" -- I was laughing throughout a majority of the shindig. My fave part of the entire show, though? The opening skit. Launching with Zooey Deschanel and Christina Hendricks practicing their "I can't believe I won!" faces in a backstage mirror, a distraught Kimmel comes in hysterically crying and closes himself in a bathroom stall. Kathy Bates, Mindy Kaling, and Connie Britton join the two ladies in an effort to get to Jimmy's stall and calm him down and, in the process, stumble upon a naked Lena Dunham from Girls eating cake in a stall next to him.
I know, there's a lot going on here. This is a skit that will have you keeling over in laughter. Check out the 2012 Emmys opening skit here:
Botox! Seriously, any time that there's a Real Housewives reference made involving Botox, it generally makes for pretty funny television. And holy wow, get a load of Dunham! I love how casual she is just chilling there in the buff, eating cake. Makes me excited for Girls season 2 in January.
Hands down, the Emmy Awards producers did a great job of putting together an excellent mixed bag of talent for the opening. I may not be the biggest Zooey fan, but she and Hendricks had a fun chemistry together. Combine that with the hilarity that is Kathy Bates and a brief appearance from that gaggle including Heidi Klum and Ryan Seacrest and holy wow -- Ellen DeGeneres?! Tons of big names that arguably could have been WAY too much to handle at once, yet worked together just right. Emmy Awards 2013: It's gonna be hard to top this one.
