Modern Family swept the board at the Emmy Awards last night winning four prizes. The sitcom took home the top Comedy Series prize as well as gongs for Supporting Actress and Supporting Actor in a Comedy for Julie Bowen and Eric Stonestreet, while the ABC show's helmer Steven Levitan won the Director award.
Psychological thriller Homeland upstaged some of the more established programs by winning four drama series honors including the main prize for the category and Series Actor and Actress in a Drama prizes for Damian Lewis and Claire Danes, respectively. Damian introduced himself to the audience as "one of those pesky Brits" and later admitted he thought Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston, who has won the accolade three times, would be victorious in the category again this year.
Jimmy Fallon’s surprise SNL appearance reprised one of the show’s iconic bits: The Barry Gibb talk show. Justin Timberlake co-stars as brother Robin Gibb, as always. Together, the two brothers don’t take any crap. Watch the video above from a distance of at least 5 feet. Otherwise, the chest hair might get you. Follow the jump to other shining moments from Saturday night…

SNL’s “The Ambiguously Gay Duo,” an animated pair created by Robert Smigel, have made 12 appearances on the show since 1996... but this past Saturday, fans saw them in a whole new way. Thanks to a flesh-ray invented by the evil villain Brain-O, we learned that the live action version of Ace and Gary look exactly like Jon Hamm and Jimmy Fallon, respectively.
Late night host Stephen Colbert played Brain-O, Steve Carell Big Head, cast member Fred Armisen became Lizardo and host Ed Helms is the two-face character in the fantastic skit.

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 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.

While it’s no surprise that General Larry Platt‘s “Pants on the Ground” has become a YouTube sensation, I doubt even the American Idol contestant could have seen this cover coming.
On last night’s broadcast of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the host - er, I mean, musician Neil Young - brought a unique twist to the catchy song.
In case you haven’t yet seen the original version, you can watch Platt - who will be appearing on The View next Monday - perform it after the jump.

If the Peacock execs had listened to David Letterman, maybe they could have kept Conan O’Brien from walking way from The Tonight Show. After all, who knows more about late-night drama than the man once screwed over by NBC?
Last night, the Late Show host came up with an idea that could have made Jay Leno, Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Fallon happy. (Unfortunately, Dave had “no solutions” as to how to help Carson Daly, the man who’s like “the Pluto of talk shows.”)
