“Unfortunately, Helen Mirren and Maggie Smith dropped out at the last second and they called me literally 45 minutes ago and I couldn’t find child care, OK?” Ferrell deadpanned. “We had a soccer game, there was a neighbor’s birthday party, a nut allergy, I didn’t have time to do my hair — it doesn’t matter, it’s great to be here.”

Ferrell presented the Outstanding Comedy Series award to “Modern Family” and Outstanding Drama Series to “Breaking Bad.”
