Emmy host Jimmy Kimmel thankfully bypassed the tired awards show opening of having himself edited into scenes from the various nominated series and instead employed the aid of several nominated actresses for a short, semi-funny opening sketch set in the ladies room. Among the actresses lending Kimmel support were Connie Britton, Kathy Bates, Mindy Kaling, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and a naked, cake-eating Lena Dunham. "I'm gonna host this show until it's pregnant," Kimmel told the actresses, no doubt prompting a few involuntary recoils in viewers.
