Emmys 2022: 11 of the Best, Worst and Weirdest Moments From the Ceremony

The 74th Primetime Emmy Awards were a ride, right?

When an evening kicks off with a dance ode to Friends, includes a belted acceptance speech and makes Lizzo cry, you know you’re going to run the gamut of human emotion during the three-hour telecast.

And on that count, this year’s Emmys didn’t disappoint. There were moments of fun happenstance (Ted Lasso himself and Succession‘s Logan Roy sitting next to each other! What were they talking about?!) and kooky hijinks (Jennifer Coolidge’s funky outro!) mixed in among interludes of pure joy (yay, Abbott Elementary‘s Sheryl Lee Ralph!) and several instances of “Wait, what just happened?” (we know being an Emmys announcer is a thankless job, but c’mon).

Your devoted team here at TVLine watched the Emmys very closely — like, very closely — and selected a bunch of memorable moments that made us laugh, cry, grimace or facepalm. But we know you paid close attention, too, so we’re also incredibly interested to know what you thought of the annual awards show.
