The 13 Best GIFs From The Emmy Awards

The 66th Annual Primetime Emmys were held Monday night.

While top winners “Sherlock,” “Modern Family,” and “Breaking Bad” may have taken up a lot of screen time during the three-hour ceremony, there were plenty of great moments from Amy Poehler, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and, of course, the “Breaking Bad” cast.

Here are the best GIFs:
