Outstanding comedy series: Modern Family
Everyone saw this coming. No surprises here.
Outstanding drama series: Homeland
I don't watch Homeland. For all I know, it's a great show. Still, The fact that Breaking Bad didn't win this is insulting. I'm surprised they've never won when every single episode is golden. Even the filler episodes are great.
Outstanding miniseries or movie: Game Change
I thought American Horror Story would take this, but HBO once again comes through. Game Change was great.
Outstanding lead actor in a miniseries or movie:Kevin Costner, Hatfields & McCoys
Kevin Costner, really?
Outstanding directing for a miniseries or movie: Jay Roach, Game Change
Outstanding lead actress in a miniseries or movie: Julianne Moore, Game Change
Outstanding writing for a miniseries or movie: Danny Strong, Game Change
Outstanding supporting actor in a miniseries or movie: Tom Berenger, Hatfields & McCoys
Outstanding supporting actress in a miniseries or movie: Jessica Lange, American Horror Story
Outstanding variety series: The Daily Show with Jon Stewart
Jon Stewart winning this was the best part of the show. Not only did Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert tackle him to the ground and try to drag him away, but he dropped two wonderful F bombs. Those are always accepted in my eyes.
Outstanding directing for a variety special: Glenn Weiss, 65th Annual Tony Awards
Outstanding writing for a variety special: Louis C.K., Louie C.K. Live at the Beacon Theatre
Outstanding lead actress in a drama series: Claire Danes, Homeland
Outstanding lead actor in a drama series: Damian Lewis, Homeland
If the sting of Bryan Cranston not winning this was enough, Damian Lewis acted like a total smug fuck during his acceptance speech. I loved how they panned to the other nominees, who all had "what the hell are you doing up there." looks on their faces.
Outstanding directing for a drama series: Tim Van Patten, Boardwalk Empire
Outstanding supporting actress in a drama: Maggie Smith, Downton Abbey
I love Maggie Smith, but Downton Abbey shouldn't be in the drama category. Anna Gunn or Christina Hendricks could've gotten this.
Outstanding writing for a drama series: Alex Gansa, Howard Gordon, Gideon Raff, Homeland
Outstanding supporting actor in a drama series: Aaron Paul, Breaking Bad
Yeah, Bitch!! I thought Giancarlo would've won, but I would be happy with either. Plus that was the best hug of the night. The only thing better is if Cranston would've joined in.
Outstanding host for a reality show: Tom Bergeron, Dancing with the Stars
I seriously love Tom Bergeron, he's awesome.
Outstanding reality-competition program: The Amazing Race
Outstanding lead actress in a comedy series: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep
Outstanding lead actor in a comedy series: Jon Cryer, Two and a Half Men
Jon Cryer, really? I didn't see this coming. Did anyone?
Outstanding directing in a comedy series: Steve Levitan, Modern Family
Outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series: Julie Bowen, Modern Family
Outstanding writing for a comedy series: Louis C.K., Louie
I'm happy with all the Emmys Louis C.K has won. He's hilarious in that total asshole sort of way.
Outstanding supporting actor in a comedy series: Eric Stonestreet, Modern Family
