Conan O’Brien by Mathew Imaging/ WireImage.com

1. Best diss: “At this point I was planning on doing a few more jokes, but Katherine Heigl told me my material wasn’t Emmy worthy.” – Conan O’Brien.

2. Best demand: Kathy Griffin ordering everyone to “GET UP!” for Don Rickles. Can we get Kathy to host next year?

3. Most miscast: Josh Groban performing a medley of 30 of TV’s most famous theme songs. Granted, he did Cartman and his Baywatch run superbly well, but couldn’t they just have played these songs?

4. Most heartwarming tribute: Ray Romano, Patricia Heaton, Doris Roberts and Brad Garrett yelping Frank Barone’s famed “Holy crap!” as part of TV’s most memorable catchphrases. RIP, Peter Boyle.

5. Most awkward opening: Wanting to bring “reality” to the Emmys, the five hosts — Ryan Seacrest, Tom Bergeron, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and Jeff Probst — opened with absolutely nothing prepared and it was positively painful. Did no one get the memo that these guys aren’t stand-ups? Plus, it didn’t help to follow Oprah and to be followed by the dynamic duo of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Note to Emmy producers: humorless banter does not keep viewers.

6. Best example of a comedy performance: Tom Bergeron dropping Heidi Klum onto the stage, which definitely looked like it hurt.

7. Most painful reminder: Martin Sheen telling us he never won an Emmy for The West Wing. At least he has one for guesting on Murphy Brown…that’s not the same, is it?

8. Best political statement: Stephen Colbert: “I think right now, America needs a prune.”

9. Best reunion: Sally Field presenting the Outstanding Miniseries Emmy to John Adams’ producer Tom Hanks. “You know, mom always said…” Oh, why didn’t you finish that sentence, Tom?

10. Best backhanded compliment: “Haven’t they been sufficient?” Jimmy Kimmel on the five reality host nominees and Emmy hosts. “Sufficient” is too kind, Jimmy.

11. Most unnecessarily drawn-out segment: The presentation for reality host. Did we really need to spread this out over a commercial break? Who do you think you are? American Idol?

12. Best passing of the torch: Nothing was more fab than Mary Tyler Moore and Betty White awarding this generation’s comedienne extraordinaire Tina Fey for Outstanding Comedy Series.

‘John Adams’ sets record

(CNN) — “John Adams” set an Emmy record Sunday night, with 13 wins overall — eight Creative Arts awards and five on the prime-time presentation, including outstanding miniseries.

HBO’s “John Adams” has won 11 Emmys overall. The miniseries received 23 nominations.

HBO's "John Adams" has won 11 Emmys overall. The miniseries received 23 nominations.The HBO program, which led all nominees with 23 nods, also earned trophies for Paul Giamatti, Laura Linney, Tom Wilkinson and writer Kirk Ellis.

“Mad Men” was named best drama.

The NBC sitcom “30 Rock” was named best comedy series as part of its seven Emmys overall. Creator Tina Fey got two — one for writing, one for acting — and lead actor Alec Baldwin also won. Gallery: See the stars on the red carpet

“The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report” ruled the Emmys among variety/comedy/music programs, with “Colbert” winning for its writing and “Daily” winning best overall.

The award was the sixth straight for “The Daily Show.” Blog: Behind the scenes at the Emmys

A predecessor in the topical “Daily”/”Colbert” tradition, “The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour,” earned an Emmy 40 years late.

Comedian Tommy Smothers, onetime “Smothers Brothers” scribe Steve Martin pointed out, left his name off the list submitted to the Emmys for the writing award in 1969 so as not to inflame their attitudes at a time when the ever-topical Smothers show was the subject of controversy. When the show’s staff won, Smothers was left out.

Smothers accepted emotionally, concluding his speech, “There’s nothing more scary than watching ignorance in action. So I dedicate this to add the people who feel compelled to speak out … to speak truth to power.”

Another comedy veteran, Don Rickles, picked up an award for “Mr. Warmth: The Don Rickles Project.”

“I’ve been in the business 55 years, and the biggest award I got was an ashtray from the Friars in New York,” Rickles said, offering several more zingers in his acceptance. Earlier in the evening, when Rickles came out with Kathy Griffin to present an award, Griffin demanded the audience “GET UP!” — and it responded with a standing ovation for the 82-year-old comedian.

In a surprise, “Breaking Bad’s” Bryan Cranston defeated “Mad Men’s” Jon Hamm and “House’s” Hugh Laurie to win best actor in a drama.

Glenn Close won best actress in a drama for “Damages.”

Jeremy Piven won his third straight Emmy Sunday night, for best supporting actor in a comedy for his performance in “Entourage.” Interactive: List of winners »

Piven poked fun at the odd opening by five reality show hosts before thanking the audience for his award.

“What if I just kept talking for 12 minutes — what would happen? That was the opening,” he said.

The five hosts began the 60th annual Primetime Emmy Awards by doing … nothing.

Ryan Seacrest, Tom Bergeron, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and Jeff Probst — with the 5-foot, 9 ½-inch high-heeled Klum towering over her fellow hosts — spent a few minutes doing some bizarre vamping, admitting they hadn’t prepared an opening. They followed a gracious Oprah Winfrey, who paid tribute to the television medium by observing that “television helped open up my world.”

Probst won the award for best reality show host. “The Amazing Race” was named best reality-competition show for the sixth straight year.

Ricky Gervais received more laughs than the hosts for a segment in which he berated Steve Carell for stealing the Emmy Gervais won last year.

“Have you been to see ‘Ghost Town’ yet?” he demanded, referring to his new movie. “I went to see ‘Evan Almighty.’ Give me my Emmy.”
