    I only had a chance to half-listen to acceptance speeches on Emmy night because so much hell was breaking loose around here as we tried to crank out our coverage. Which ones should I go back and watch?

    I didn’t think Ty Burrell’s speech was funny at all, almost painful to endure.

    Julianna Marguiles gave the best speech in my opinion……loved the shout out to the writers and the 22 episodes comment.

    Both of Burrell’s speeches sucked. Why couldn’t he ad-lib or mention his co-stars??

    Allison Janney’s  gracious and humorous speech was a highlight for me. Her beautiful shoutout to Anna Faris, her pride in the Multi-Cam role she has as a mother….she’s just amazing!

    Bryan Cranston  of course as well. It felt like a moment. A great and prideful  moment.

    The Ricky Gervais moment on stage was soooooo…..i don’t even know.

    Here it is:
      Hello. I lost again! That’s good. Twenty-one times! Twenty-one times I’ve been nominated. Lost 19. It’s a cruel joke. Well done to Jim Parsons, though. I would have preferred to have won it, but, you know. Also, I’ve come a long way and he’s probably local. Four years in a row seems unfair, doesn’t it? I wrote a speech. You’re not going to get to hear that. Actually, I could do it, couldn’t I? Yeah. It won’t make sense now, though. ‘Ha, ha. I won! I knew I would because I am the best actor.’ See? ‘Better than those other actors — Parsons, [Don] Cheadle, [William] H. Macy, Joey from “Friends” and Louis [CK] from “Louie” spelled slightly differently. Look at their stupid faces. Thank you to the Emmy voters who are never wrong.’ Well, we know that’s bollocks now.”

    Jim Parsons’  incredibly self-deprecating speech was  so badly needed, and very welcome. Especially after 4 record tying wins.  He made the standard praise of his fellow nominees sound genuine, and seeing Don Cheadle and Louis CK agree and nod along as the speech went on was great. And his shoutout to his late father was golden. “I want to thank somebody I’ve never thanked before, largely because he passed away shortly before this craziness started, even though I think he was able to see it in his own way. “But my father, Mickey Parsons, he encouraged me to be an actor. He never discouraged me to be an actor, and in a career that hinges so much on confidence a lot of the time, that was a really great gift.”

    Burrell’s 2011 speech was cute, as he got everything in, but this one was just cringeworthy. What happened to just rattling off a few names instead of trying to be clever? Sad he didn’t mention Ferguson

    Kathy Bates was adorable. She looked so flustered that I wanted to hug her.

    Best: Kathy Bates. Served up a big helping of surprise and I loved it. Let’s hope for more Oscar love for this lady.

    Worst: Cary Joji Fukanaga –> Everything about him and his demeanor just screams ‘douche’ (kinda like the show), even his hair.

    And I thought I was the only one who felt that way… He seems like a huge douche.

    Ty Burrell’s speech was bad, and I *loved* his first speech. Fukanaga probably had the worst of the night — why the hell didn’t he prepare anything? He was the frontrunner!

    I cringe a little bit everytime Aaron Paul mentions his wife’s charity work. As for the best, probably Gail Mancuso and Bryan Cranston.

    Ty Burrell tried too hard. Janney was sharp and Louis-Dreyfus and Cranston were terrific.

    Janney was on the money. As far as I remember, I loved Burrell’s prepared SAG speech earlier this year though I can’t remember what it was. He always pulls some sort of gag, but this year it just fell flat. JLD was 100% as usual. Cranston’s speeches are always heartfelt and utterly inspiring.
