2012-09-24 10:08
Making sure that his opening skit would have audiences howling, Jimmy Kimmel went on to ensure that the rest of Hollywood would be roasted.

Dabbling in some politics and not even leaving out poor ol' Charlie Sheen, here's a recap of Jimmy Kimmel's top five quotes heard at the 2012 Emmy Awards.

1. "Am I nuts or does that guy in the mustache look just like Tom Hanks?" - Jimmy joking after Tom Hanks accepted the win for Game Change in the Miniseries category.

2. "I don't think the President should be watching Homeland for the same reason Charlie Sheen shouldn't be watching Breaking Bad."

3. He ragged on Jon Hamm, the Mad Men leading man who's been nominated five times for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series but has not yet won. "I for one am shocked you didn't win tonight," Kimmel said.

4. "Tonight is the night we honour the one thing in Hollywood we love more than anything else: ourselves. That's how the Emmys got their names. M, E, me," Kimmel went on joking about how self-centered Hollywood can be.

5. "Once again, HBO leads all the networks with 81 nominations, but it was a bumpy year for HBO. Their highly anticipated horseracing drama, Luck, was cancelled halfway through the first season. By the way, if you're going to the HBO after-party, don't eat the sliders."

Don't forget to watch the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards on Monday 24 September on M-Net (channel 101) at 20:30.
