Little-watched cable comedies had a moment in the spotlight early in the Emmy Awards, as Merritt Wever of “Nurse Jackie” and Tony Hale of “Veep” picked up supporting actress and actor in a comedy trophies, respectively.

Meanwhile, 30 seconds into the telecast the phrase “binge-watching” made its first apperance.Netflix stole the thunder back during the nominations this summer, snagging 14 nods and becoming the first Internet-streamed show in history to be up for major awards. It continued to have a presence during the awards ceremony, as Kevin Spacey parodied his “House of Cards” character’s breaking the fourth wall, addressing the camera during a bit that saw former hosts of the Emmy Awards crash Neil Patrick Harris’s opening monologue.“It’s all going according to my plan,” Spacey gloated in the audience, talking directly to the camera while the former hosts (Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Jane Lynch) bickered with NPH behind him on stage. “Getting them to sabotage Neil was almost too easy.”The Emmy Awards aren’t known for shaking things up. So, relatively speaking, this could be an especially groundbreaking year for the show as “House of Cards” is expected to duke it out with critically-adored “Breaking Bad” and last year’s champ “Homeland” for best drama series. If “Cards” prevails, it would become the first Internet-streamed show to win a major award. The political drama made a big splash in its debut season, as stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright are up for acting nominations, while David Fincher represents in the directing category.

Other Washington-based shows could have a big night, with series such as “Homeland,” “Veep,” “Political Animals” and “Scandal” all nominated for trophies. “Scandal” star Kerry Washington continues to raise her profile, earning a lead actress nod – and if she wins, she’ll become the first African-American actress to win the award. (She is the first African-American actress to even be nominated in the category since Cicely Tyson in 1995.)

A hint of modesty infused the red carpet at the 65th annual Emmy Awards. Call it a backlash to headlines of nude pop stars and a sensational buff-colored bikini at MTV’s Video Music Awards. Buttoned-up gowns felt fresh compared to the amount of skin seen on carpets of late.

The visual interest was provided by unique necklines. Zooey Deschanel’s seafoam J. Mendel delicately traced the line of her collarbones before breaking into a small slit diffusing the solid block of color.

Taylor Schilling, of Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black,” chose a haltered pearl-hued Thakoon featuring a high front slit and open back.

Padma Lakshmi’s lovely Kaufmanfranco felt balanced with a moderate neckline and sheer back, as well as the tiniest of slits along her svelt torso.

The color, dubbed pomegrante by fellow “Porject Runway” host Tim Gunn, was similar in hue to Mindy Kaling’s decadent Georges Chakra.Zosia Mamet of “Girls” wore an Honor gown that had a halter akin to Klum’s, though the full skirt and flower print softened the look to fit her feminine sensibility. There was no “side-boob” fodder this year for Michelle Dockery of “Downtown Abbey,” whose Chado Ralph Rucci revealed a little much at the Screen Actors Guild Awards last winter. A chic color-blocked Prada was appropriately covered, feeling on trend in this season of conservatism. See red carpet photos here.
