The Emmy Awards are like an awkward, often forgotten middle child when compared to the glamor of the Oscars or the Grammys.
Lucky for us, what the program lacks on television it makes up for on Twitter. Actors, musicians, comedians and viewers at home on their sofas contributed to the treasure trove of tweets that dominated the Internet during the awards show.
These are our five favorites.

The members of indie rock band Best Coast were, like many others, very moved by this year's awards.
Is it normal to cry during the Emmys? I just love TV so much I'm so emotional rn :/— BEST COAST (@best_coast) September 23, 2013
Lena Dunham, writer of "Girls," continued to be just as shameless as ever.
If anyone catches me looking at pics of myself at the Emmy's WHILE at the Emmy's I'll have to kill myself to preserve the honor of my family— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) September 23, 2013
Jenni Konner, also from "Girls," had her priorities straight.
The #Emmys2013 is/are so fun. Also, I'd kill someone for a hamburger.— Jenni Konner (@campsucks) September 23, 2013
Braden Graeber, social media celebrity and creator the "Hipster Mermaid" meme, spent the evening making high-brow jokes like this.
It's illegal to yell "Gluten!" in a crowded theater. #Emmys— braden graeber (@hipstermermaid) September 23, 2013
