A look at the memorable moments at the Emmy Awards.

A GOOD SHIFT

Jimmy Kimmel, who first hosted a pedestrian Emmys in 2012, came back and did much better — relaxed, sarcastic without being mean, and quick on his feet. His opening skit included jokes with former GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush ("Did you know you can make $12 an hour driving for Uber?") and his opening monologue tweaked Donald Trump by goofing on Mark Burnett, who created 'The Apprentice.' He also made fun of the smugness of his audience: "In Hollywood, the only thing we value more than diversity is congratulating ourselves on how diverse we are," he said. The only truly odd note was a poor attempt at a Bill Cosby joke. But his banter with Matt Damon and his goofing on Maggie Smith made up for it.
