Emmy Lowlights: Which Moment Made You Groan?

The 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards aired last night, and the nicest thing we can think to say is: They weren't nearly as bad as the Oscars.

Jane Lynch was mostly warm and likable as the host, even if her joke at Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' expense was a little dated (better to save the zingers for "mean" comedians like Ricky Gervais).

But as usual with awards shows, a lot of Lynch's material was corny at best and flat at worst. Take her musical opening number, for example. There were some funny parts mixed in, but as Lynch herself put it, it mostly felt "stupid and schlocky and overly long."

And even the "surprise" moments felt very scripted. Charlie Sheen appeared as a surprise presenter to wish the cast of "Two and a Half Men" well -- and we didn't buy one word of it.

"From the bottom of my heart, I wish you nothing but the best for this upcoming season," he said, addressing the show's cast and crew. "I know you will continue to make great television."

Despite some carefully placed dramatic pauses, the moment was so humorless -- and such a drastic turnaround from Sheen's recent behavior -- that it came off as insincere.

And maybe we're old-fashioned, but we were kind of creeped out by The Lonely Island's performance of "3-Way (The Golden Rule)" and "I Just Had Sex," which were nominated for Original Song Emmys. Does anyone care that there are kids watching this show?

From Sheen's speech to Steve Carell's snub to Joel McHale and the Emmytones, let us know: Which Emmy lowlight made you groan?
