|Louis CK and Amy Poehler: Winning?|
To all of which we say: Meh.
We get that the awards are important to Hollywood, but for the rest of us, the Emmys exist as a form of voyeuristic entertainment -- who's looking the best, who manages to be genuinely funny, and who, well, doesn't. So that's how we've determined our own set of winners and losers from last night's telecast.
The best, the brightest, and the bombs, after the jump.
The whole world had a front-row seat to the Poehler Sideboob Party last night, and nobody was complaining, because the woman is a national treasure and we should worship all parts of her, including her reasonable amounts of cleavage. Plus, her mixed-up acceptance speech bit with Julia Louis-Dreyfus ensured that she still won the stage, if not the category.

The show was already dragging when these guys hustled out to say yet another hokey joke and give out another award. Luckily, they knew what was really important, announcing the score of the NFL Sunday Night game between the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens.
Hey, look, they let him back on live TV! He's still a dick -- telling the audience that he hoped Louis CK would win and effectively dulling the real winner's moment -- but you've gotta admire his consistency.
Louis CK won two Emmys last night. He also just wins at life.
