With a traditional host like Seth Meyers at the helm, the 2014 Emmy Awards ceremony was steadily amusing but mostly unmemorable.  With that as the standard, it was a delightful treat when Weird Al Yankovic came out on stage to perform his version of the theme songs for Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Scandal, Homeland, and Modern Family.  Weird Al’s lyrics were appropriately silly and the jolt of musical energy was a breath of fresh air for the telecast.

Hit the jump to watch the Weird Al clip, plus Meyers’ introduction monologue, the “Billy on the Street” segment, and the audience questions bit.

    If that was the highlight of the Emmy’s then I missed nothing. Award shows are continuing their trend into meaningless jibber jabber.

      Award shows have always been meaningless jibber jabber. You watch it for the same reason you would any other talk show or throwaway comedy programme; an hour or two of chuckles/laughs and you go back on with your life.

      90% of life is meaningless jibber jabber….

      Learn to enjoy it.

    When Andy Samberg showed up at Jeoffry had me cracking up. Although I kindof wish he reprised his SNL character, the 13 year old Game of Thrones consultant who’s job is to make sure there are lots of boobs.

    Seth as a host was disappointingly unfunny and boring. His ass was almost saved by other people’s gags like Samberg imitating Joffrey, Cranston and Louis-Dreyfus, Billy on the Street and Jon Hamm not having an Emmy (Fingers crossed for next year) which I found hillarious, but still, that was not nearly enough to cover the three hour runtime.

    Man… I can’t believe people actually complained about NPH last year. He was basically a god compared to this.

    Since when are the Emmy’s or any other award show supposed to be more memorable than the awards?

      I think they play off of each other, the more people like the choices of awards, the more memorable the show is, the more memorable the entertainment on the show is, the more memorable the awards and awarded will be.. They just feed off of each other.

    Bwahahaha, at first I was like “Meh,” then when they gave George the typewriter I lost it.
