There was an outcry when the Emmy producers announced that they were paying special tribute during Sunday's telecast to five people the industry had lost over the past year.
The rumblings were so loud about what some saw as favoritism that even Emmys host Neil Patrick Harris stepped into the fray to explain the reasoning.
"I always find the In Memoriam is just really interesting because sometimes it seems weird that they keep the audio on in the house, so some people get applause and some people don't, and it turns it into this weird moment," he told Access Hollywood. "And you want that moment to be honoring those people, and not a competition."

There are a lot of reasons to love Aaron Paul: he's the charismatic star of Breaking Bad; he likes to reward his fans; he's adorable. But as if the actor didn't already have us firmly in his corner, Paul rocked the red carpet at the 2013 Emmy Awards, and showed even the seasoned veterans how it's done.

It's a decision that every Emmy host has to make for him or herself – how low do you go with the blows toward your fellow entertainers in the audience?
Well, Neil Patrick Harris got right into it during his monologue, and he even brought along some former hosts to help him do it.
In case you missed it, here's a recap of the monologue's best zingers:

Best acceptance speech ever?
Merritt Wever barely uttered two sentences as she stepped onstage to collect her Emmy for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy, for her role as Zoey Barkow in Nurse Jackie – but her look of shock said it all.
"Thanks so much. Thank you so much," she said while fumbling with the card presenters Amy Poehler and Tina Fey had just pulled out of an envelope, apparently attempting to confirm her name was indeed there.
For a moment it looked as though Wever, 33, would give a traditional speech, but she apparently decided against it.

You know that phenomenon called the calm before the storm? You're outside and you notice everything seems to go quiet, the air goes still, and all seems peaceful. It's time to head inside, and get ready because in a few minutes, the air will change, the clouds will appear, and raindrops will start falling on your head. Saturday was my calm before the storm.

For Jane Lynch, coping with the loss of Glee costar Cory Monteith is an ongoing struggle.
"I think that grieving comes in waves," she told PEOPLE at the Ciroq-sponsored Variety & Women in Film pre-Emmy event in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Friday. "Every day that I go to work, I walk past his trailer, and every time I look at a call sheet I see that his name is not on there. Every time I do a scene with the kids I realize that he's not there, so you're reminded in every moment. It's hard, and it feels like such a waste."
But while Lynch admits "it's tough" as she and her castmates continue to mourn the 31-year-old – who died from a lethal combination of heroin and alcohol this past July – her heart goes out to his girlfriend and costar, Lea Michele.

We're assuming you haven't just watched both seasons of Scandal, you inhaled them in an unhealthy amount of time (and if you're not tuning into the show, we're not sure what you're doing with your life).
And we're also assuming that like us, you're a die-hard fan of D.C.'s sexiest crisis manager, one Olivia Pope (fabulously played by Kerry Washington). Wishing your life were a little more Scandal-ous? Follow these lessons out of the Pope playbook.

Going into Sunday's Primetime Emmy Awards has Claire Danes feeling a flurry of emotions.
The Homeland star, 34, who is once again nominated for outstanding lead actress in a drama series, calls her nod "a nightmare come to life" – but not because she isn't grateful for the acknowledgment of her hard work.
"If you lose, you have to cope with that sting, and if you win, you have to get up and say something eloquent and charming, and remember to thank your husband or your wife," Danes tells PEOPLE. "It's always the vital person you forget to thank. It's terrifying. And then you see the clock ticking. It's awful, that particular part of it."
