People.com compiled our top 5 favorite funny moments from the Emmys last night – and asked you for yours.

Here's a sampling of what you Tweeted kept you laughing (and crying) during the show.

1. Michael J. Fox Gets a Standing Ovation
In addition to the LOL moments, there was an incredibly touching one, too, when Michael J. Fox took the stage to present and drew a thundering standing ovation from his peers.

"Steady as a rock!" the actor, who's been battling Parkinson's Disease for two decades, told the crowd from the stage.



"The standing ovation for Michael J Fox give me chills, goosebumps and tears. best moment by far #emmymoment," Marla Merchut Tweeted.

2. Tracy Morgan Passed Out?

Earlier, host Jimmy Kimmel asked fans to Tweet about Tracy Morgan "fainting" on stage – to try to get an Emmy moment "trending" on the Twitter. Tracy happily obliged by laying on his back onstage through the commercial break.
