Oh, Hollywood awards shows — there's always the good, the bad, and the awkward. And Monday night's 2014 Emmy Awards show was no exception. Seth Meyers hosted the event and he had warned viewers through Entertainment Weekly that he'd be spoiling secrets of the best shows — and he delivered on that promise. Luckily (or unluckily), we didn't see any acceptance speeches like Jacqueline Bisset's from the Golden Globes. But with the casts of Game of Thrones, Modern Family, Mad Men, Veep, and Breaking Bad all in attendance, the TV gods blessed viewers with some of the best and quirkiest lines from our favorites celebrities.

Although the show wasn't that entertaining, it always helps whenever True Detective's Matthew McConaughey (Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series loser) graces an awards ceremony. But it seems the Emmys were well aware of that fact and most of the jokes were set around him.

Regardless, McConaughey is always good fodder for a verbal treat, so here are the best quotes from Meyers, the winners, and the presenters of the 2014 Primetime Emmys.
