The Television Academy 75th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards brought out TV’s brightest stars for a gala ceremony presented by Blackish alum Anthony Andersonwho brought his comedic style to the stage at LA Live’s Peacock Theater on Monday.

The celebration was filled with some unforgettable Hollywood highlights, including some fun, hilarious bits, surprising exchanges and unforgettable acceptance speeches.

Here’s a look at the biggest, best and most emotional moments from Monday’s Emmy Awards.

Anthony Anderson gets help from his mother

The Blackish alum hosting this year’s star-studded ceremony and kicked off the evening with a laugh-out-loud musical monologue that set the tone for the rest of the evening, singing about the impact and legacy of TV in honor of the Emmys’ milestone 75th anniversary.

After the musical opening, however, Anderson used his time to explain that the show would be handing out 27 awards, so people should keep it short – and he planned to hire his mother, Doris Bowman, to keep things moving. Fittingly, Anderson’s mother used her authority to keep her son’s monologue going, yelling from the audience at him to hurry up because she wanted to go to the afterparty.

Christina Applegate proves she’s the best

The Dead to me was an actress the first presenter of the eveningand was overcome with emotion by the crowd’s raucous cheers as the theme song came out Married with children played above her entrance.

Applegate – who started in the entertainment industry as a baby – used a cane to walk out during her MS battle and thanked the crowd before using her trademark biting humor to tell the audience to whistle so they could stay on schedule. “Thank you so much, oh my god. You’re totally shaming me because I have a disability by standing up, it’s fine,” she said, causing the audience to erupt in laughter.

Pedro Pascal reveals why he wears a bracelet

The Mandalorian star has finally answered the burning question of why he has been in a bracelet for the past few weeks. “A lot of people have been asking about my arm – it’s actually my shoulder – and I think tonight is the perfect time to tell everyone that Kieran Culkin has beaten the hell out of me.” The hilarious off-the-cuff joke was censored when it aired, but still proved to be one of the highlight jokes of the evening.

Niecy Nash-Betts thanks herself in an emotional acceptance speech

The 53-year-old actress gave one of the most memorable acceptance speeches of the evening after she was honored with her first Primetime Emmy for her work in Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.

After thanking the makers of the show, and the people who supported her along the way, the celebrated actress also thanked herself. “I want to say thank you,” she said as the crowd cheered. “Because I believed in me and did what they said I couldn’t do. And I want to say to myself in front of all you beautiful people: Carry on, girl, with your bad self! You did it.”

It’s always sunny in Philadelphia Cast jokes about lack of Emmys

Charlie Day, Rob McElhenney, Glenn Howerton, Kaitlin Olson and Danny DeVito take the stage to present an award, but can’t help but be amazed at how the Emmys have gone on for 75 years, and not once have they been nominated for Always sunnydespite their show being on the air for a whopping 16 seasons.

“Wait, you guys have been doing this without us every year?” Day asked the audience in disbelief. However, DeVito sheepishly admitted that he had previously received an Emmy (for Cab) and McElhenney got a few for it Welcome to Rexham – but nothing for it Always sunny. While the show is still on and will continue for a while, it was truly proof that the lack of Emmy love is inexcusable.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler return to the news desk

The 30 Rock And Parks and recreation stars reunited at the Emmys to look back when they co-anchored Saturday evening live‘s Weekend update. Fey and Poehler once again sat behind a reconstruction of the Weekend Update desk on stage and used their news anchor personas to present the award for Outstanding Live Variety Special. It didn’t last nearly as long as fans had hoped, but it was a wonderful reminder of how great the pair’s chemistry really is.

In Memoriam Segment pays special tribute to Matthew Perry

Charlie Puth and The War and Treaty delivered two heartfelt performances during Monday’s tearful In Memoriam – first with a performance of “See You Again,” and then upping the emotional impact with a somber and beautiful rendition of “I’ll Be There for You”, the theme song of Friends, when Perry’s tribute photo appeared in the video montage.

The 75th Primetime Emmy Awards, which was originally scheduled to take place last September, was postponed due to the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes.
