Louis C.K., Sarah Silverman, and 'The Colbert Report' Win Emmys While Amy Poehler Gets Snubbed an 11th Time

fallon_colbert_emmysThe Emmy Awards aired on NBC last night, and there were a few predictable winners (Modern Family won for Directing, Supporting Actor, and Outstanding Comedy for the fifth time), some happy surprises (Louis C.K. won Outstanding Writing for his Louie episode "So Did the Fat Lady;" Sarah Silverman's We Are Miracles took home the Outstanding Variety Special award), and plenty of comedy snubs (Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Fred Armisen, and Amy Poehler, who has received a total of 11 Emmy noms now without a single win). As for the ceremony itself, host Seth Meyers kept his promise by sticking to jokes instead of big musical numbers or pre-taped segments and instead leaned on attendees like Billy Eichner, Jon Hamm, Fred Armisen, and later Andy Samberg and Weird Al to deliver the show's sillier moments.

Click through for the full list of winners as well as some clips from the show's biggest comedy moments, from Weird Al's parody of several TV theme songs to Billy Crystal's heartfelt tribute to Robin Williams.
