Watch Neil Patrick Harris’ 2013 Emmy Monologue
Thought Neil Patrick Harris would open the 2013 Emmy Awards ceremony with a lavish musical number? Well, that didn’t happen … yet. Instead, Harris’ opening sketch was an depiction of what most of us were probably all doing the week before — binge watching every series.
Harris sat in a chair surrounded by stacked TV sets playing bits of all the nominated shows, asking the shows themselves for some hosting advice. While the recorded segment was all good and fun, the real comedic gold came during Harris’ opening monologue as Jimmy Kimmel, Jane Lynch, Jimmy Fallon and Conan O’Brien – all former Emmy hosts – joined him on stage for a bit.
It was an unexpected bit for Harris who, as mentioned above, was expected to open with a musical number, but it was hilarious just the same. Watch the Neil Patrick Harris 2013 Emmy monologue above and let us know what you think below!
