What They Said
Matthew Weiner, creator and executive producer of "Mad Men"
"I want to thank all the people that went before us in television to make a show like this because we are just channeling it every day. We love going to work."
Tina Fey, star of "30 Rock"
"'30 Rock' is available to be viewed on NBC.com, Hulu.com, iTunes, Verizon phones, United Airlines and occasionally on actual television."
Paul Giamatti, who played the second president in "John Adams."
"I'm living proof, kids at home watching, that anybody can play the president."
Alec Baldwin, star of "30 Rock"
"They say actors are people who look good saying lines written by smarter, more clever people. And, in our show, that is certainly the truth."
Glenn Close, who won the award for lead actress in a dramatic series for "Damages"
"I think we're proving that complicated, powerful, mature women are sexy in high entertainment and can carry a show."
Emmy co-host Howie Mandel on the absence of a host monologue
"We are like on Sarah Palin's bridge to nowhere, that's where we are right now. The government can't even bail us out of this. We have nothing."
Jeremy Piven, razzing the reality-show hosts
"What if I just kept talking for 12 minutes? What would happen? Oh wait, that was the opener."
Steve Martin, who introduced comedian Tommy Smothers
"Being here tonight is a big thrill for me because as a kid I use to run home from school and get all dressed up and play 60th anniversary Emmy Awards."
Tommy Smothers as he accepted his honorary Emmy
"It's hard for me to stay silent when I keep hearing that peace is only attainable through war. And there is nothing more scary than watching ignorance in action."
Ed McMahon as Josh Groban sang a tribute to TV's top shows
Jon Stewart of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart"
"I really look forward to the next administration, whoever it is. I have nothing to follow that up with. I'm just saying I really look forward to the next administration whoever it is."
