To avoid a conflict with Sunday Night Football, NBC moved the 2014 Emmy Awards telecast up a month, to August 25. But in swerving clear of the football juggernaut, the Emmys steered right into the lane of the landmark cultural occasion of late August: the MTV VMAs, scheduled for one day prior.
It got us thinking: What if we took things to their logical conclusion and handed MTV control of the Emmys, as well?
Using categories from both the VMAs and their summertime counterpart, the MTV Movie Awards, we've imagined what would happen if the cable network was in charge of handing out trophies for everything that's on TV, not just music videos.
Massive spoilers below!

Her show is certainly polarizing, and she has the public just as torn. But the girl has guts, and the Emmys have recognized that. (She's nominated for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series, her third straight nod.)
Girls season 3 saw Lena Dunham's Hannah Horvath go through a series of career crises – (spoilers) losing her ebook deal, fired from a job at GQ – and some personal problems with her three besties and boyfriend Adam. Though often criticized as self-centered (which she still was this season), she was also dealt a few harsh reality checks, losing her grandmother and making an important decision about her future.

Adam Driver's performance as Adam Sackler shows that Girls isn't just about the girls.
In season 1, he was – let's face it – pretty darn weird. Season 2 gave us more of him, although in some not-so-nice situations with the girl he was dating. But as the boyfriend of Hannah Horvath (Lena Dunham), he proved himself to be loyal, loving and the one constant in her somewhat messy life.
It was actually kind of hard to watch Adam pull away from Hannah this season – (spoilers) he got a job on Broadway and began spending more time focusing on work and less on her. But it was also enjoyable watching him come into his own, working hard to keep Hannah happy while finally finding personal success.

Talk about a view.
Taking their cues from Lena Dunham, Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd went topless on The View on Monday in what they jokingly claimed was a ploy for ratings.
"You know Lena, she gets press every week for being naked," Shepherd, 46, said after showing a clip from the latest episode of Girls. "So we're jumping on the bandwagon."
