After a brief montage of catch phrases, Oprah Winfrey is the first out and talks about about the 60th anniversary of the Emmys.

She also plugs her book club and talks about how television has rocker her world.

The five hosts come out. Ryan Seacrest, Tom Bergeron, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel are all similarly dressed in black suites with skinny black ties. Jeff Probst is on the end without a tie.

I always thought "Deal or No Deal" was a game show, not a reality show. Mandel keeps interrupting Probst.

Bergeron has William Shatner assist him in tearing Klum's suit off. She's wearing a sequin dress underneath.

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are the first presenters. They do a bit about welcoming all the countries watching.

First up is supporting actor in a comedy series. I had picked Jeremy Piven and I'm correct. Third time he's won in a row.

"I just got off a plane from New York in which I'm doing a play. The good people at 'Entourage' make me feel like I'm doing a play every week. What's so interesting is I'm in the midst of this rehearsal and I'm feeling like 'maybe I should go into roofing' I'm so bad. That's what it feels like right now. To have this... thank you for the 11 people that laughed. For the love of God. What if I just kept talking for 12 minutes? What would happen? That was the opening. These are strange times for all of us. To be a working actor is an unbelievable gift. None of this is lost on me. Thank you so much."
