With NFL football threatening to delay the telecast of the Emmy Awards, the show's executive producer comes on stage to show the Nokia Theatre audience a bloody clip from "Game of Thrones."
That, Ken Erlich warns Emmy nominees, is what will happen to the winners if they don't keep their acceptance speeches short.
Fortunately for the long-winded, the game ends just as the show is scheduled to begin.
That leads Erlich to make one additional announcement: The New York Jets won the game.
