  • Celebrity presenters do away with clippy, joke-heavy back-and-forths in favor of drawn-out conversations lasting as long as 15 minutes
  • “In Memoriam” reel includes quick shot of Tamerlan Tsarnaev
  • Per tradition, all the winners are announced at the beginning of the broadcast for people who don’t feel like watching the ceremony
  • Nathan Fillion folded his program into a fan
  • Behind the scenes, two producers lay the foundations for what will become the worst television show ever made
  • The Dooley family's Zenith B27A30ZC 27" TV from their den is honored with lifetime achievement award
