UPDATE: It turns out Ed O'Neill was apparently misquoted. You can read the retraction statement here.
“I love Jane, honestly I do. I’m dying to star in one of Christopher Guest’s movies alongside her, but I don’t think she should have gotten the Emmy for that part. [Sue Sylvester] is just a one-note character."
-Modern Family star Ed O'Neill on Jane Lynch's Best Supporting Actress win for her role on Glee. (For the record: Ed was the only adult from his ABC show to not receive an Emmy nomination.)

When you think back on the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards—which portion will you remember the most?
For me, it will be George Clooney’s relationships (plural) with the cast members of Modern Family. Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd, I beg of you two—please make this happen.

Despite Jimmy Fallon’s truly horrible singing (he’s no Neil Patrick Harris), the opening number of the 62nd Primetime Emmy awards was a huge success. Thanks, Jane Lynch.
Lynch and several of her Glee co-stars, including Emmy nominees Lea Michele and Chris Colfer, helped start the Emmy Awards off right with a funny, tuneful Bruce Springsteen tribute that YouTube won’t soon forget. Watch the video above to see it for yourself!

Tonight, the annual Emmy Awards telecast will be aired live on both the East and West Coasts (finally!). The ceremony will also incorporate fan tweets into Jimmy Fallon’s material—but will there be any other surprises in the 2010 broadcast?
Will 30 Rock continue its domination in the Comedy category, or will Glee - or even Modern Family - finally topple the reigning champ? Will Mad Men snag another Best Drama win, or will Lost get a statue for its final season?
What will Conan O’Brien say if he wins for The Tonight Show during this NBC event? Will Elisabeth Moss address soon-to-be ex-husband Fred Armisen if she wins for Best Supporting Actress? Oh – the awkward possibilities are endless!
So who won and who lost at the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards? Read our West Coast play-by-play account of this evening’s telecast and find out!

- The Secret Life of the American Teenager (ABC Family, 8 p.m.): “Amy’s friends and family forget about her birthday.” Everyone’s so wrapped up with her sister’s wedding to the oily beau-hunk.
- Miss Universe Pageant (NBC, 9 p.m.): “Global beauties compete in swimsuit, evening gown and interview categories at the 59th annual gala, hosted by Bret Michaels and Natalie Morales.” It’s like Bret almost died and went to heaven.
- Rizzoli & Isles (TNT, 10 p.m.): “A shooter aims for runners participating in the Boston Marathon.” Boston Marathon, biathlon—same diff!
“I was obviously thrilled for all of them,” Glee creator Ryan Murphy said of the show’s whopping 19 Emmy nominations, “but the one that I was just like, ‘holy s&^t, that is just great!’ was Chris Colfer.”
Colfer, who plays Kurt Hummel on the series, scored a nod in the Best Supporting Actor category. Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother) and Jon Cryer (Two And a Half Men) are also among the list of nominees.

Did Jay Leno make an awkward situation even more awkward? Or was he simply being a good sport?
On last night’s broadcast of The Tonight Show, the talk show host brought up the fact that his program was technically nominated for four Emmys yesterday - though it was for work Conan O’Brien’s crew did.

Conan O’Brien’s surprise Emmy nominations this morning for his work on The Tonight Show prompted NBC to issue a
unexpected statement about their former employee.
The network, which did not see a Jay Leno mention, wrote: “We congratulate Conan and all our nominees on their creative accomplishments and their deserved nominations.”
Conan - who saw his old program receive four noms including one for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series - also delivered his own comment via Twitter. “Congrats to my staff on 4 Emmy nominations. This bodes well for the future of The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien,” he wrote.

The road to the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards officially kicked off early this morning. Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara (who received a nod) and Community‘s Joel McHale (who didn’t) were the ones who had the honor of reading this year’s list of nominees.
Although Mad Men - with 17 nominations - once again topped off all dramas, 30 Rock didnot
lead the comedies. Glee did. The freshman FOX series raked in a total of 19 noms, only a handful short of the overall leader. (HBO’s miniseries, The Pacific, received 24 mentions.) 30 Rock did receive 15 nominations, though, while Modern Family followed closely behind with 14.
The August 29 ceremony - which NBC will air live on both the East and West coasts - will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon. You can see a partial list of nominees after the jump.
