What If MTV Ran the Emmy Awards?

What If MTV Ran the Emmy Awards?

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.

Forget "Crazy Eyes."

Uzo Aduba's eyes only glistened with tears of joy and gratitude Saturday night when she took home her first-ever Emmy for her portrayal of quirky inmate Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren on Orange Is the New Black.

"I feel so full, that's why the tears come out," Aduba, 33, told reporters in the press room following her win for outstanding guest actress in a comedy at the 2014 Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live. "I'm stuffed really. I'm beyond full. My cup runneth over right now. I feel absolutely all of those things: I feel full of joy, like a fountain. Mission accomplished."

Aduba was nominated alongside costars Natasha Lyonne and Laverne Cox and has said it's an honor to just be recognized for her work on the hit Netflix show, which was also her big acting break.
