Neil Patrick Harris Opens the Emmys, is Interrupted by Hosts of Awards Past: VIDEO

Lynch_harris

Neil Patrick Harris tried to open the Emmys, but was interrupted by past hosts of the show, including Jimmy Kimmel, Jane Lynch, Jimmy Fallon, Conan O'Brien, and finally Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

"Said Lynch: I want to tell you why I wasn't asked back. I wasn't asked back because I am a woman."

Replied Harris: "Oh, c'mon Jane. I don't think anyone who watched that night thought of you as a woman."

Lynch: "I'm gonna show you just how much of a woman I am Harris."

Harris: "I wouldn't like it, Lynch."

Lynch: "I would like it less, Harris."

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Oh my homosexuals are soooo funny.

  2. If Jane had said "lady" instead of "woman," leading into "Nobody thought of you as a lady," then I would understand.
    But what is this joke supposed to mean? If she isn't thought of as a woman, she is thought of as what? A man (because of her pantsuits, maybe)? Or just as a person, suggesting we're not so sexist to think about a host's sex? Is it supposed to be insulting? That joke just confused me.

    I'm a little surprised that Neil would go along with telling Jimmy his tap dance was "too gay." Too gay for what? Why do some people thing it's funny to suggest that ANYTHING is "too" gay, as if "gay" is something to be avoided?
    Did the joke writers think it would be funny for a gay man to turn the tables and belittle a straight man with a homophobic put-down?

  3. Bad writing, bad jokes = not amusing and kinda stupid.

  4. The whole show is a train wreck.

  5. Emmy Awards = homophobic. Neil is the useful gay idiot of choice for the Emmys producers.

  6. Really? They book a gay host then script three painfully ridiculous bits at the expense of lesbians/gays through the evening. So much for liberal bias...

  7. Being outraged by everything must be exhausting.

  8. I like Neil Patrick Harris but the writers of the Emmys blow. Given the fact they are paid a crapload of money for this one gig, they should come up with funnier bits.

  9. I'm mad, grrrrrrr, so mad, grrrrrr !

  10. I'll grant that the writers were crap on the whole of the evening. Beyond that, I'm largely indifferent.

  11. I quite enjoyed it.

    I had forgotten that NPH did a character arc on Glee in its first season. Will Shuster's rival. It was fun to see him and Jane together again.

    Watched it with my dad and brother. That in itself was quite interesting.

    Strangely, after 40 years of being called gay, it was kinda cathartic hearing a gay man (whom I used to have a major crush on) using the term in a comedy skit on national television. An Openly Gay Man on National Television. Nope. Didn't bother me one bit.

  13. Yay, I love Neil Patrick Harris… I thought the bit was fun, and it's nice to see that we can poke fun at ourselves. I really feel that being gay is becoming a nonissue, finally!!!

  14. The only thing missing was Rob Lowe singing to Snow White.

  15. I was kinda excited thinking NPH was going to twerk... :(

  16. I think NPH is very talented and deserves all of his success, That being said, I find him to be very self conscious and trying too hard. For example, he's always overenunciating EVERYTHING he says. Loosen up - I wonder what he's like in bed? Poor David. :-)

  17. Neil Patrick Harris produced the show. He put up his own money and had great say in what was said and what went down. They ran the entire show twice here on the West Coast which just goes to show you the kind of power wielded by those who ran the show. All in all Harris did a fine job - there were several flubs (Carrie Underwood singing the Beatles, she was flat right out of the gate), the hosts squabble, the individual memorials just kept bringing the show down and the writing could have been much better.

  19. GER, you're reading my mind!

  20. The audience was sober and cold.

    Posted by: Hagatha | Sep 23, 2013 2:45:43 PM


  21. You'd know all about cold, wouldn't you?

    But, do you remember what it was like to be sober?
