2. Neil Patrick Harris and Amy Poehler Get Dramatic
Things I am sad about include the fact that I was not able to find a video of one of the funniest moments of the entire show: When Neil Patrick Harris and Amy Poehler stepped onstage to present the award for Outstanding Male Television Actor, drama. Instead, I give you this transcript courtesy of EW as a poor substitute for the real thing. Imagine Neil and Amy saying the following with the most serious, dramatic tone you can think of:
Amy: Family. Honor. Sacrifice.
Neil: Tension. Deception. Courage.
Neil: To some, these words describe the work of our next nominees.
Amy: But to us, they’re just a bunch of words that sound dramatic when said loudly.
Neil: Betrayal. Secrets.
Amy: Swordplay. Midnight.
