The 64th Primetime Emmy Awards will clock in at three hours of entertaining moments. Whether you caught the whole show or just tuned in for red carpet coverage and will catch up on YouTube, here's a countdown of the top five highlights that had us laughing out loud.
5. Jimmy Kimmel's Short & Sweet Opener
Awards show openers aren't usually known for their brevity, but Kimmel kept his monologue short and sweet. "Let's not forget, in a way, all of you are winners tonight, but in a much more literal way, most of you will be losers," he joked. "The important thing is we get out of here and you can put on your fat pants." He kept up the laughs later on as well, quipping, "If you ever wondered what happens during the commercial breaks backstage, try to imagine all your favorite TV stars all in one room, checking their phones and ignoring each other."

The celebration of Hanukkah calls for a few culinary staples: latkes, chocolate gelt and, in Gwyneth Paltrow's house, matzoh-flavored ice cream.
The Oscar winner, who celebrates the Jewish holiday in honor of her late father, is a fan of Chozen, an ice cream brand that draws inspiration from traditional Jewish recipes.
Flavors range from Ronne's Rugelach and Coconut Macaroon to, just in time for the Festival Lights (which starts Tuesday), Chocolate Gelt.
Also digging into the kosher treat, which is available online and at Tribeca Treats in downtown Manhattan: Jon Stewart and Andy Samberg.

Today, the United States. This weekend, Washington, D.C.
In a poll of more than half a million readers, the online magazine AskMen.com has voted Jon Stewart the most influential man of 2010, it was announced Tuesday.
The distinction arrives only days ahead of this weekend's "Rally to Restore Sanity" being organized by the Daily Show host and his Comedy Central colleague, Stephen Colbert, in the nation's capital.
As for his influence, AskMen says, "Despite his innumerable enemies, Stewart's acerbic take on the madness around him continues to draw audiences who look to the funnyman as a voice of reason. Stewart's show was once dubbed the 'fake news,' but these days it's become our youths' most trusted source of information, and its host the most trusted man in America."

Two debates down, one to go. And Michelle Obama would be just fine staying at home for that last one, thank you very much.
The wife of Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama admitted Wednesday night that she generally doesn't like to attend her husband's debates. "I get nervous," she explained on the The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. "I'm fine with people calling me and saying he did a good job. And it's like, Good, I got to watch Dick Van Dyke."

Likely to be in a tux when he assumes his emcee duties at Sunday night's Oscar ceremony, Jon Stewart was recently found unshaved and sporting army boots in the nether regions of Hollywood's Kodak Theatre – prepping for the job ahead.
"This is an exercise in battle stations," the Daily Show host, who just survived the three-month writers' strike, tells The New York Times about his upcoming weekend job. "In some ways it allows your mind to be in that fight-or-flight mode the whole time: 'Okay, we're mice being chased by a cat. Let's just do it.' "
