Even if your favorite nominee got snubbed, Sunday's Emmycast could have been the most satisfying in memory.
It was funny, bright and skillfully hosted by "Glee" star Jane Lynch.
It moved at a brisk clip, free of the usual stumbles and lulls, and, even better, it flowed almost seamlessly, a next-to-impossible feat for any awards show.
Production values at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles were eye-popping, from the setting — an omega-shaped arch through which presenters made their entrance — to a tour-de-force comic musical number spearheaded by Andy Samberg and fellow "Saturday Night Live" performers that might have had some viewers scratching their heads in bewilderment, but had to leave them dazzled nonetheless.
Yes, "Modern Family" cleaned up — winning five Emmys (including best comedy, supporting acting trophies for TV parents Julie Bowen and Ty Burrell, and best writing and direction).
But Mark Burnett, the pasha of reality TV, was the night's behind-the-scenes winner. Taking over for the first time as executive producer of the Emmys, he gave it a rare measure of class and pizzazz.
Best of all with the Emmys, there were startling surprises among the winners — and none undeserving.
