With its big dance numbers, surprise winners and extended montages honoring departed actors, Sunday night's Emmy Awards show wasn't exactly conventional.
Twitter came up with a name to reflect that: (hashtag)weirdemmys.
A search of the term turns up images of Kevin Spacey slapping at a camera with an index card and Merritt Wever's surprisingly short speech.
In the site's usual snarky vibe, users made fun of the program's death montages and the backstage interviewing skills of actor Shemar Moore. But most seemed to enjoy Michael Douglas' raunchy acceptance speech after he won an Emmy for playing Liberace in "Behind the Candelabra" and offered to split the trophy with co-star Matt Damon, who was nominated for playing Liberace's lover.
"Is it me or is this show really really really weird?" Access Hollywood host Billy Bush posted toward the end of the three-hour program that was nearly delayed by a football game.
