Police want Miley's pal Poor Miley Cyrus ! Even her goodwill gestures backfire! Seems the homeless man Miley brought to the VMAs Sunday to accept the best video of the year prize on her behalf is wanted by the police. Miley came to the glitzy gala accessorized with one Jesse Helt as a way to highlight the plight of homelessness. The Statesman Journal of Salem, Ore., says there's a warrant out for Helt's arrest for multiple parole violations in Oregon. Helt was paroled after a 2010 conviction for an attempted break-in at a flat in Salem.

STOP ME if you've heard this one before: Jim Parsons, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jessica Lange, Ty Burrell, Stephen Colbert, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, "Modern Family," "Breaking Bad" and "The Amazing Race" all went home with Emmys last night. What? You thought NBC was going to waste an original episode of anything on a Monday night in late August? Early - because NBC didn't want to compete with the MTV VMAs and doesn't like to interfere with Sunday night football - and often more like a rerun than a live show, the 66th annual Emmy Awards was nevertheless a fine night out for host Seth Meyers.

B ILLY CRYSTAL will pay tribute to his longtime friend Robin Williams at Monday night's Emmy Awards. Crystal will honor Williams as part of the traditional "in memoriam" segment for industry members who died during the past year, Emmy executive producer Don Mischer said in a statement yesterday. Mischer said that the memorial segment during the ceremony will include a performance from singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles . At last year's Emmys, Williams honored his friend and mentor Jonathan Winters during the tribute segment.

Before I detail my picks for Sunday night's Emmy Awards, you should know that my Emmy-handicapping skills are unrivaled. No one who watches TV for a living - and I mean no one - is able to consistently predict the results as erroneously as I am. But I am reliable. So if you're an actor I pick to win in your category (congrats, Louis C.K.), don't bother memorizing that acceptance speech. And away we go. . . . Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. Right off the bat, I have issues here.

Emmy highlights, for those glued to the Eagles From David Hiltbrand's "Dave on Demand" at The chances of anyone in Philadelphia watching the Emmy Awards on a night when it's on against a prime-time Eagles game? About the same as any reality show has of beating The Amazing Race . Here's what you missed: Host Jane Lynch opened the show with a big song-and-dance number that began with a brief skit featuring Leonard Nimoy as Mr. President of Television. He was a last-minute fill-in for Alec Baldwin, who had taped the bit but asked to have it pulled after Fox edited out a Rupert Murdoch joke.

* EMMY AWARDS. 8 p.m. tomorrow, Fox. LOS ANGELES - There's more than Hollywood ego on the line at tomorrow's 63rd prime-time Emmys. After disappointing performances by a pair of major trophy fests this year, the TV ceremony could prove an awards season reboot. For producer Mark Burnett, the successful reality TV czar ("Survivor," "The Apprentice") who is tackling his first big awards show, it's a chance to play hero or risk being the goat. He can't take any cues from the double thud that marred the 2011 season.

SO MANY after-Emmy thoughts, so little time: Edie Falco, whose latest Emmy acceptance speech included the declaration, "I am not funny," may have a point. But it's not that one. A smart, down-to-earth actress with great timing, Falco walks that line between comedy and tragedy where the darkest kind of funny is found. There were weeks when "The Sopranos," for which she won three drama Emmys, was probably the funniest show on television and there have been weeks when "Nurse Jackie," which Showtime insists on calling a comedy, was one of the saddest.

THERE ACTUALLY were upsets and first-time winners at the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, but on a night when AMC?s ?Mad Men? won best drama for the third year in a row and ABC?s ?Modern Family? won for comedy, perhaps the biggest surprise was that the awards show itself was entertaining. The evening got off to a "Glee"-ful start, with a pretaped opening in which host Jimmy Fallon put together a pickup team of singers from the cast of the Fox hit series and from assorted other nominees - Jon Hamm ("Mad Men")
