People.com compiled our top 5 favorite funny moments from the Emmys last night – and asked you for yours.

Here’s a sampling of what you Tweeted kept you laughing (and crying) during the show.

1. Michael J. Fox Gets a Standing Ovation
In addition to the LOL moments, there was an incredibly touching one, too, when Michael J. Fox took the stage to present and drew a thundering standing ovation from his peers.

“Steady as a rock!” the actor, who’s been battling Parkinson’s Disease for two decades, told the crowd from the stage.

“The standing ovation for Michael J Fox give me chills, goosebumps and tears. best moment by far #emmymoment,” Marla Merchut Tweeted.

2. Tracy Morgan Passed Out?

Earlier, host Jimmy Kimmel asked fans to Tweet about Tracy Morgan “fainting” on stage – to try to get an Emmy moment “trending” on the Twitter. Tracy happily obliged by laying on his back onstage through the commercial break.

At least one Emmy watcher missed the moment on TV and got fooled by the social media heist.
