OMG! Tracy Morgan passed out at the Emmys!

NEED TO KNOW
  • Tracy Morgan pretends to pass out
  • Grown-up 'Opie' remembers Andy Griffith

If you were watching your twitter feed last night, you may have seen people tweeting about Tracy Morgan passing out onstage at the Emmy Awards. But that only happened in cyberspace. In the real world, Morgan laid down on the stage at the behest of host Jimmy Kimmel, who though the stunt might get the show trending.

Tina Fey's awkward nominee presentation, Eric Stonestreet's overzealous fans (and their hairy chests) and Jon Stewart's takedown by fellow nominees were just a few of the other comedy highlights. 

Ron Howard's memorial for his TV dad, Andy Griffith, had the room tearing up and Michael J. Fox brought everyone to their feet as he appeared onstage to present the final award of the night. 

The full list of winners: Who took home Emmy Awards?
