A Look Through the Best Emmys Openings and Monologues

When several of the best recent hosts joined Neil Patrick Harris during his monologue last night at the Emmys, it was as a reminder that, despite the usual award show grumblings and random musical performances, the producers of the Primetime Emmys have a pretty good track record.
