Jimmy Kimmel may have promised the "biggest prank ever" to hit the Emmys, but the late night host was decidedly tame during his opening monologue.

The night's emcee kicked things off with a nod to So You Think You Can Dance beauty Cat Deeley, saying, "It will all be worth it to find out if the award for best reality host goes to Cat Deeley."

However, the topic quickly turned to Hollywood's favorite subject: politics. "Are any of you voting for Mitt Romney?," Kimmel asked, resulting in a collection of cheers and jeers from the audience. "See, that's why Kelsey Grammer didn't come tonight. Being a Republican in Hollywood is like being a Chick-fil-A sandwich on the snack table at Glee."

Who else was on Kimmel's hit list?

Kimmel then turned his attention toward Girls writer, director and star Lena Dunham. "She's 26 years old, and she's already nominated for acting, writing and directing. I don't have a joke here. I just want everyone to feel bad about themselves."

The late night veteran kept things short, ending  with, "Tonight, you will be asked to perform your most challenging role yet: that of an actor who has to pretend to be happy for another actor."
