10 spontaneous, often hysterical, moments from the annual awards
By Kenny Herzog Special to MSN TV
Since reality TV continues to move toward broadcast dominance, we thought it
fitting to acknowledge the Emmys by journeying through some classic
unscripted moments in the ... moreshow's history. While the Emmys aren't as loose as,
say, the MTV Movie Awards, there's just enough booze flowing among its esteemed
attendees to create some loose lips, and plenty of jubilated good vibrations to
result in endearingly silly victory celebrations. The 64th Primetime Emmy
Awards airs Sunday, Sept. 23, at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on ABC.
So whether it's a Hawkeye handstand or a kiss from Matthew Perry, here are 10 of our
favorites, or just plain most famous, unrehearsed moments.
By 1975, Lucille Ball was a bona fide living
legend and could get away with just about anything, including arriving to the
podium without her glasses to present Outstanding Comedy Series to "The Mary Tyler Moore
Show." After fidgeting with different envelopes for close to a
minute, Milton Berle finally rushed up
and came to her rescue, but not before teasing her to use an empty wine glass as
bifocals. A hilarious moment from one of Hollywood's golden eras.
