Much like the nominations, the Emmy Awards may not have played out exactly as you thought they would.
The night was a celebration of first-time winners, such as "Modern Family's" Eric Stonestreet, "Big Bang's" Jim Parsons, "Glee's" Jane Lynch and "Temple Grandin's" Claire Danes.
"Modern Family" bested "Glee" in the outstanding comedy series category, and "Mad Men" dominated the best drama category over some other favorites such as "Breaking Bad," although it's fair to say the AMC show didn't dominate the evening. Matthew Weiner's retro program nabbed a total of four Emmys, including awards for outstanding drama series and drama writing.

Jon Hamm should have won an emmy for his performance in Season 3 of Mad Men....hands down.....Best written and acted show on Television currently.....bittersweet night for all Maddatics.....
Who are these people i have never seen nor heard of any of them how could they win Emmy t.v is going to the dogs.
I love it when I get to feed hay to horses. It feels funny and tickles my hands. I always think for a second that they are going to nibble my hands too, but they never do.
I love Modern Family and think it is one of the most hilarious shows on tv, but I thought the drama category was wayyy off. What happened to 24, Entourage, Rescue Me, Lost, Grey's Anatomy? The season finale of Grey's were two of the best hours of tv last season. 24's Chloe deserved a supporting actress nod for every season she did...she was robbed this year, when last season she stepped up to best actress material. I'm surprised Parenthood wasn't nominated for anything; that should was the ultimate comedy/drama and I looked forward to it every week.
You mean people still watch TV? Whoa!! I killed mine.
The Emmys are definitely a joke. Since the voters think that most of the best shows are on cable, they should move the Emmys to cable also. It already appears that HBO owns them so they already have a home!
the opening number was awesome!
i think clark perry should have an emmy for temple grandin
let's change things up, what did yall think about the opening skit?
I do not watch Glee, but thought this was very clever and entertaining. I could have done without Kate though, she looked horrible!
Why, NCIS hasnt been nominated yet is a complete mystery. NCIS is the #1 rated drama on TV. The people who run these awards have no clue what they are doing. Its sad to see.
All this stuff just stupid anyways, who cares who better then who. Its just nice to watch tv when there nothing else to do ya know lol
I have not watched one single show on that list. Not a single one, not even an episode. Oddly, I find a deep sense of comfort in seeing that my personal tastes in TV are so radically misaligned to the tastes of Hollywood's glitterarti. We couldn't be farther apart. I'd long suspected that, but here's the proof of hard data. This article may very well be the most inspirational and self-affirming article I'll read today.
People that complain about the Emmy's and then rave about shows like Two and a Half Men or Glee, show why people like you aren't calling the shots. Some of these may be fixed, but shows like Jon Stewart and Breaking Bad are some of the best stuff on TV for their categories. Anyone with a half a brain can tell Two & a Half Men and Glee are aimed at the uneducated, idiotic masses. Everyone has their own tastes, but good God man, if those shows (Glee, LOST, and Two and a Half Men) isn't obvious idiot fodder, I don't know what is? Maybe you people should start complaining you don't see enough nominations for Family Matters and complain about the lack of Urkel exposure, too, while you're at it?
I've never seen any of those shows, except "THE CLOSER". There are a lot of good New shows that didn't get ANY mention at all such as, "DROP DEAD DIVA" – "THE GLADES" just to mention a couple. Besides that they keep showing, Walking The Red Carpet over and over but I never saw The EMMY's afterwords??? HMMM!!!
I would like to say:
1) Edie Falco is brilliant in Nurse Jackie. It is brilliantly written and I'm sure loads of people in the nursing profession could identify with the situations that occur.
2) Modern Family is brilliant feelgood comedy that isn't sappy. I'd say it's on a par with Arrested Development in regards to comedy value and Eric Stonestreet's character is wonderfully original! He kills me!
3) Jane Lynch is a legend! Definitely deserved to win alongside Jim Parsons. Every comedy needs an anti-hero and that is what their respective characters are!
Well done to all that won awards, but if shows missed out, it's no biggie, it's popularity is shown in the figures and if it's picked up next season. THAT is what's important to fans!
I am ecstatic that Jim Parsons won. But he looked really thin and had makeup on that didn't look good.
A few high points, but mostly crap. At least they gave the "reality" award to a cooking show, Other than cooking, they should probably rename the "reality" category to "contrived crap".
I haven't seen any of these shows, but I am glad Edie Falco won. I never seen her show but am still a fan of when she was on "The Sopranos". Now that was good TV!!!
ABSOLUTELY!!! TOTALLY AGREE WITH YO|U!!!
Dexter is awesome!
Who cares about all these worthless awards and these folks who make such crazy money for these shows?!!!! Who really cares!! And worse it all the hoopla that is made like they're saving lives!! Who cares? We don't care about you dumb clothes or who made it such narcissists !!! Go find something good to do and then maybe I'll care
Mad Men Mad Men Mad Men Mad Men Mad Men Jon Hamm Jon Hamm
I still can't believe how bad LOST was snubbed!!!!
Can you justify Betty Whites win with a one time appearence with Tina Fey doing Sarah Palin week after week?
A discrace! Not fair at all .
Actors are nominated for their performances in a particular episode, not for their entire body of work over a season. That's true not just for guest actors but for leads and supporting as well.
Wait wait wait wait - "Big Bang Theory" is a COMEDY now? What the...I mean, I always assumed it was a drama, because it never makes me laugh.
Good reply !
What I don't understand is why 2 1/2 Men it's writers, staff, never win anything. Jon Cryer is excellent .
It's true that really good network shows are fading into the sunset but there are still many underrated ones. I was really disappointed that Kyle Chandler and/or Connie Britton didn't pick up emmys for their splendid performances in the equally splendid, but not nominated, Friday NIght Lights which, in my opinion, is one of the best network shows to hit the smalll screen in many years. The same group of thespians are usually the ones nominated each year...there needs to be a cap on how many years one can win so that other equally talented performers can take home one of those Emmys. While Mad Men has a tendency to be boring at times, it is still a good show. Most people don't care for it because it takes place during a time frame no one is familiar with.
I have not watched a television series since "I love Lucy," and Mad Men is above par. Now get the dickens outta my office!
Modern family rocks. They deserved what they got.
Out of all of the showed mentioned, Dexter and John Lithgow have the biggest gripes. John Lithgow was incredible in Dexter, and Dexter still remains the most underrated show on tv.
The most overrated is TrueBlood. It's basically Twilight with nudity.
John Lithgow won...so why should he be griping?
True Blood True Blood True Blood True Blood True Blood True Blood True Blood True Blood
Hugh Laurie of House should have won. Hugh Laurie was so deserving for his outstanding performance; he has never won an Emmy; Also NCIS also should have won. Both are excellent show, smart, funny stylish and fantastic writing, directing and acting.
Hugh Laurie has been the best performer on TV since House started. He is miles ahead of the rest. Why no Emmy? Oh, and Jon Stewart is smug and smarmy and so politically correct in an inside the Beltway way.
First of all, KUDOS to Jim Parsons!!! BBT is the funniest show on television. The dialogue is witty and truly comedic and the cast is superb. KUDOS to Glee! Love that show as well! Regarding minority actors, (noting that I'm an Af-Am female who watches a crapload of network and cable tv–Thank God for the DVR), I'm not sure that I saw any performances that were Emmy-worthy from any minority group. And yes, they may not have even been cast in any of the roles. But if you're disappointed, watch movies. That's where you'll find us. LOL.
If you have even a menial interest in Dr. Jack Kevorkian you should watch "You Don't Know Jack" I am very glad it won for best writing & best actor in a miniseries or TV movie. Pacino acted out Kevorkian to perfection taking us through the emotions of the character. As for the other categories I am a big fan of Breaking Bad & it's about time for Aaron Paul to get his due, Cranston is great as well. Jim Parsons was a little much to win for BB Theory even though I am a huge fan of the show, Alec Baldwin's Jack Donaghy is generally a shoe in and I saw no reason for that to change this year. Awesome props to NPH for his guest turn in Glee as well, In my opinion best episode of the season.
DEADLIEST CATCH deserved a Reality Show Emmy this year. Hands down. "Realest" Reality show on television.
I have not watched tv series since "ally mcbeal". I started watching mad men 2 years ago, and glee 1 year. These two shows are awesome. They deserved even more Emmys.
What a bunch of lousy shows,none with shi!
Are there that many gays out there...and is that appealing to the masses...the office is the only show worth watching and that won't be any good once SC leaves....thank God its Footballball season!!
I was very disappointed the Glee and Parenthood came out practically empty-handed. I have never seen Temple Grandin, Mad Men, or Modern Family.
Never watch award show. Waste of time, as is
95% of TV
I didn't watch any of the winning shows. There is nothing worth watching on TV anymore. Go out and get a life, start exercising. TV is not worth your time.
Best production of Emmy awards ever! Those skits in the beginning were hilarious – especially plugging in George Clooney to Modern Family.
Finally! Jim Parsons' win for Best Male in a Comedy was more than well deserved! He is soooo funny and the anchor of an already funny sitcom!
I loved the mini series the pacific do not any of the tv shows nominated expect american Idol and dancing with the stars I do watch HBO I liked temple grandin and you dont know Jack anything Al Pacino is in I would watch.
how did true blood not win anything? Good thing i didn't waste my time watching this!
Breaking bad is AWESOME....now if I could just score like they do
Congratulations to Kyra Sedgwick! She's excels in her ability to create Deputy Chief Brenda Lee Johnson-the acting is brilliant and the award was deserved. I've rooted for her to win every year.
I like the show Glee, but I never saw it as a comedy. Certainly that wasn't their main focus.
For the first time ever, I really don't know any of the shows who won....I must be watching other cable programs.....
Claire Danes DESERVEDLY was recognized for a SUPERB performance as Temple Grandin. Most deserving, she was simply incredible in this movie. I recommend it for your entire family.
The emmys r what they r. They r a party for tv people. Some good shows get recognized,closer,good wife,modern family.some shows get overlooked,friday night lights,entourage,dark blue and some shows get too mucH credit,mad men, breaking bad, we have no vote so we have todeal with it if we watch. I like watching for the fashion and to root for my team to win. Think of it as preseason tv watching. Sometimes u win sometimes u lose.(
I didn't watch the Emmy's (Steelers' game was on) but was curious to see the list of winners. I must agree with many of the people on here – I have never seen, or even heard of, most of these shows. What is Temple Grandin? One friend of mine watches Modern Family and says it's funny but I've never even happened upon it while flipping through channels. Looks like there was only one reality show award. Thank God because those shows are the WORST.
Jon Stewart, really? I'm going to vomit.
LOST walked away with nothing??!! That's a shame. But glad Al Pacino won. His work is just brilliant.
I don't watch most of the shows that were up for emmys so didn't really care who won but I thought the Emmy's show was very entertaining! The host did a great job and the goofy comments made by the announcer as the winners walked on stage was very funny it was very entertaining television, I only kept it on long enough to hear Jewel sing and that song was beautiful! and well worth the wait.
I was very disappointed with the Emmy this year. Glee should have won more, true blood should have won, the pillars should have won fora mini series. Just didn't enjoy that modern family won, boring.
so glad that Jim Parsons finally won!...
True Blood was robbed! I'm so tired of Mad Men winning, that show isn't very good in my opinion. Plus far more people watch True Blood. (big sigh) I guess there's always next year.
Congrats to Jim Parsons. Only reason to look forward to Mondays is "The Big Bang Theory"...now my DVR will be busy at 7pm on Thursdays–BBT and Community will be on at the same time!
Funny, haven't seen a single episode of any of the shows listed.
I agree with Julius (#3), 2 1/2 men was robbed. It should have won it all.
Everyone looked so STYLISH and I'm so happy for 'Breaking Bad.'
There are way too many awards shows being broadcast these days. And who's brilliant idea was it to separate cable awards from the Emmy's? C'mon! It's ALL TV! Keep in mind that just because you enjoy watching a show doesn't mean it's Emmy award quality (ie NCIS). What qualifies a TV show to be nominated for an Emmy? I don't know. But I DO know that there are some great actors out there who will never get the notoriety they deserve (Jon Cryer) because the show they're on has (or devolved into) sub-standard writing. If I can predict the "next line" in a show, it's not entertaining. "Big Bang Theory" is a funny, well-written show to me because it's NOT predictable – like "2-1/2 Men" has become. It (or rather Jon Cryer) USED to be Emmy material – not so much now. And that's not his fauly. That show should have folded when it was on top 2 seasons ago. Now they're just jumping the shark every week.
Love Eric Stonestreet and was so happy to see him win! He's awesome. Love Modern Family and also very happy to see the show win! Modern Family is very funny and really a fun show. Some one got it right!
Breaking Bad is the best show on TV. Both Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul definitely deserved to win. This show is smart, funny and exciting and the entire cast is amazing. It is probably the best show I've ever seen & I can't wait for the new season to begin. If you haven't seen it yet, it's definitely worth checking out!
http://marymind.wordpress.com/2010/08/27/because-you-aint-soup-yet/ ....I'm just sayin'..
Dont care about d emmys.i jurt love jimmy falon he was very funny thats my oppinion
rbickers, considering the shows that did win, I think minorities should be grateful to not be associated with this travesty.
LOL.....you are the (wo)man! all i know is minorities can be man men, Glee-ful, and even suck blood. They can also break bad, live in a modern family, get lost, turn on the Friday night lights and some don't know Jack! it would just be nice to watch it on TV.
@rbickers, um...do you even WATCH True Blood?? Clearly NOT since two of the main characters are AFRICAN-AMERICAN! Tara and Lafayette (Lafayette is also gay!) Maybe you should try actually researching some facts before whipping that race card out.
agreed, most were pretty crappy
I just love jimmy falon dont care about d emmys.he was very funny i
I can't believe Parenthood didn't get any recognition....never saw or heard of any of the winners except Kyra.
What happened to Treme or Hawthorne??? The Emmy's are a real joke!
NO NCIS THATS A SHAME, GOOD WIFE DESERVED TO WIN --------------
Yes, why wasn't NCIS even nominated? It's one of the highest rated shows on TV and a really good show.
Never heard of these shows...they are for people that don't have interesting lives that need this. There are good educational shows on t.v....why watch phony garbage???
I think the African American woman who assisted in handing out the emmys and playing road guard getting the talent off stage should be congratulated. She was the only black person to touch an emmy all night. I am not playing the race card because you have to be at the table to play and don't get me wrong, I love seeing white folks having a good time and accepting awards thanking their nanna for taking them to tap dancing lessons at the age of three.
However, I would think that in 2010 that more minorities would be included in the mix. I would say shame on the networks, HBO, AMC, TNT and the rest of the production gatekeepers, but I don't know if that would be fair. Is producing a movie/series with minorities a no go because white folks won't watch? hmmmm. I would never want fairness and art to get in the way of a profit.
Oh well, minorities can rest in the thought that you may not be able to be a television star, but you could be president .
@rbickers- you... are a moron. o.o
good come back Brooke riddled with detail. is english your first language?
So what's your definition of "not playing the race card" then? Your last sentence pretty much sums up how ignorant your whole post was. "Oh well, minorities can rest in the thought that you may not be able to be a television star, but you could be president ." Sounds like you're resting in your own thoughts by not doing anything productive yourself to change it.
By the way, you played the race card.
Always one who is going to "play the race card" in everything!!!!
You would perhaps rather minorities be awarded things simply because they are minorities, like Obama's Nobel Prize, instead of on the merits of any real accomplishments?
rbickers – I have watched countless "black" shows over the years but most of the garbage on TV that African-Americans are in are silly sitcoms on one of the local channels and are lousy. They constantly make stereotypical jokes about white people in a negative light and are just plain ridiculous. They are no better than the silly "white" shows on these same channels and I wouldn't watch them either. Also, keep in mind that the percentage of white people in the US far outweighs the percentage of ANY other race so it just goes to say that there will be more white shows on TV. And, actually, if you think about it, African-Americans are SECOND in the number of stars in this country but not necessarily second in actual numbers of people. Quit playing the race card. It really gets old after awhile. BTW, I DID vote for Obama and think he's doing the best he can considering the mess the previous administration did. I would gladly watch a quality show in which African-Americans are the main characters and I have many times. Most white people I know would do the same.
Playing the race card would be giving awards to african-americans just because they're african-americans.................. idiot
I do not think brickers is playing the race card. I agree with some of what was posted and I agree some of the reply postings. Deb, you are an idiot-"whites" are no longer the majority in this country, not sure where you are living. It's not all about black and white. There was not one person of color (that includes hispanics and asians) that won an Emmy. But I think the bigger picture is that there were barely any persons of color nominated.
I agree that many of the shows that are considered "black" shows are completely stupid (anything Tyler Perry puts out) and this needs to change. What happened to the days of the Cosby Show. This was a "black" show that promoted family values and was looved by everyone. I for one would rather they be a mix of people in shows and not have "black" or "white" shows.
Terri – So, I guess Archie Panjabi doesn't count as a minority then? *eye roll*
I hate to be the one to say this, I agree with alot that was said......... but, if you people dont agree with the winners chosen and think that the acting is horrible, move to Hollywood and see if you can do better!
Breaking Bad should have won everything!best show on television!
Tru Blood, Weeds, Sons of Anarchy & Entourage should have got some recognition! Realy, I never even heard of Grandin the only thing I agree on is "The Pacific". Nobody cares a bout LOST that show sucked.
I agree....i love Sons of Anarchy. What about Damages?? Another great show and nothing.
Lost certainly was not for the impatient viewer – meaning 95% of tv viewers. But this season didn't deserve any Emmys.
Entourage and Weeds don't deserve any, either. While Weeds has been downright awful since the third season, Entourage is just an indulgence show – entertaining but lacking any real merit.
Its also a bit offensive that True Blood gets so much attention when Carnivale was canceled after two seasons.
@Ryan. I agree, Carnivale was a great show!
There are many good shows but with the growth of cable the percentage of bad shows far outways the good. What grinds on me is the millions of dollars spend on advertising for these bad shows that just increases the price I have to pay for their goods.
Nothing for True Blood and Lost was the way to go because those two shows are as bad as Mad Men. All three are weak with weak writing and even weaker acting.
Well i can say..i didnt even know the emmys were on last night! reason being...there is nothing on tv anymore worth watching. i tape resciue me cause its on late where i live and wstch it on wednesday...until the new season stars up ther is really nothing to watch..and sundays will ba probly the only time ill watch! family guy and american dad..glee whenever the time and day it will be on..id rather watch a crappy movie on sci-fi than watch what network tv has to offer
all those shows are horrible.
Nothing for True Blood???????
I agree! True Blood should have one at least for best drama series. And they should have been nominated for their writing.
I never watch Net Work TV anymore; these awards sum up why.....BORING.
Most deserving by far, the guys of 'Breaking Bad". Awesome show, if you don't watch it, you NEED to!!
Lost was ripped off again. Sci fi never gets a fair shake.
Archie Punjabi, Yay!. Temple Grandin awards were spot on. Finally – Kyra Sedgwick won -yay.
Do people pay attention to these kind of exhibitionist shows at all when there are places in the world right now where people do not have anything to eat??!! Is this really so important??
I am sure you are writing this from haiti or somewhere, right? not from your home reading about this on cnn.com? hypocrite.
Amen, David! Tina, if you're so worried about it, why don't you send some of your food to starving countries? Or your salary? So the rest of us should live like the poverty stricken because it exists in the world? Typical knee-jerk liberal thinking....
Dammit... what does people sees in Mad Men? That thing is a weak series. Even Rescue me has better actors and better stories than that thing!!
And Temple grandin... i didn´t like it. It´s true that claire makes a good job, but the movie is not so good to get so much prizes.
these are almost sentences.
How wonderful for you, Bridget, that you're the commander of the grammar and spelling police! Yay for YOU! Living in mommy and daddy's basement must afford you a lot of free time.
I hate watching the Emmys. Its fixed as far as I'm concerned. What about Lost. No recognition what so ever. The best part of the show was Jewel singing that beautiful song in memoriam to the ones we lost. I hate Modern Family. Who watches that crap. Glee is good. Never again will I watch the Emmys. What about Two and a Half Men.
Who votes for these losere.
i think some ncis bones csi weeds dexter r all way better shows that people knows unlike other show they name
There are always people ans shows that do not get recognized, may be the Emmys should do something like the Oscars did this past year. They should add least one or two more people and shows to the bigger categories and then showcase a little bit of each on the show. Especially, since there is so many more shows and channels then the 3 regular networks, and no more cable ACE awards.
Both shows could do away with the memorials I think it is in poor taste when people applause for some and not others. I would hate to be one of people's families that did not get any applause.
I thought Jimmy Fallon was very good as the host.
God bless Jon Stewart ,lol . A shout out to Stephen Colbert....robbed again,lol
Rescue me dennis leary and without a trace, should of got rewards. But I think dexter should of won for best show!
i'm assuming you mean "should HAVE'
With the exception of breaking bad, Cable shows blow every show nominated on this list out of the water.
Wow what a lame ass list of winners, but whose surprised.
Who decided on these winners? I do agree on one The Closer.
i totally agree with you..i prefer action shows like criminal minds, bones, the closer, and comedies like eureka..also glad jon stewart got it..right up there with colbert report...nothing is funny if you have to use sound tracks for laughs...
2 and a half men is the funniest show ever
I've watched it a little, never found it funny. All jokes tend to look like this:
Anyone: Don't hit on that woman, Charlie Sheen!
Charlie Sheen: I am going to hit on her!
(cue laugh track)
Sorry people. NCIS, Bones, without a trace. And Burn Notice. Should have taken something long before breaking bad. Glorifying cooking meth and feeding a toxic to our youth is pathetic.
Obviously you've never seen Breaking Bad. They don't glorify it at all. I love it when people spout off about something they obviously know nothing about.
Wow, Steve, thanks for being the leader of the moron tribe. Breaking Bad is not about glorifying meth, and you'd know that if you watched the show AT ALL. NCIS is formulaic KRAP and perfect for the moron tribe. You serve your people well.
Probably doesn't glorify it as you say, but it does suck. Can't believe Malcolms dad has won three straight best actors for it. Oh wait, yes I can cause the Emmy's are a joke.
Nick, the fact that you referred to him as "Malcolm's Dad" proves that you know squat about this subject.
Umm...never heard of these shows. How about shows that ppl have heard of? Ok, maybe im the only 1 who doesnt know em, but still...
Modern family is a true throw back sitcom i love it
Two and a half men should win in some catagory every year? jon Cryer hello?
Glee, modern family and big bang theory are overrated how can you not have 2 and a half men as winners the emmys are a joke
Big Bang Theory is HILARIOUS. This is one of the best shows on television. It is sad that you can't agree its funny because you most likely don't understand the humor. And Modern Family is also a great show– true family humor. One of the best comedies to have come from ABC. As for Two and a Half Men, I agree it got snubbed, but I think the winners of this category earned their statuettes.
2 and a half men does not deserve a single nomination. Jokes about genitals and sleeping with a ridiculous number women loses it's appeal after the first dozen so-called 'jokes'.
Who was the annoying announcer who talked about the actors as they walked up
? He was not funny at all.
His name is John Hodgman and he is funny. His little asides are part of his dry humor. Sorry you didn't enjoy him, but he is funny ("PC" in the "PC vs Mac" commercials, "Daily Show")
John Hodgman is absolutely not funny even when he strains for a laugh on THE DAILY SHOW with Jon Stewart. I don't know who lost a bet and had to hire this guy .He has no sense of comedic timing nor delivery. He should stick to commercials which no one watches anyway....
he's a thinking man's comedian. not surprised there's not a ton of appreciation for him, since most people are idiots. i love him... but that's because i actually enjoy using my brain.
i thought he was obscenely hilarious.
Wow Glee lost best comedY? Shocker! I can't believe Top Chef won! The amazing race is much better.
I love Modern Family!!
I think Rescue Me & Denis Leary deserve recognition at the Emmys.
i agree, i do not think there has been a better episode on tv, then when tommy was on his drunken bender trying to remember where his druken daughter was.(on the beach)RIVETING
yeah rescue me is the best show on cable. breaking bad is great too, but i don't get that channel, have to netflix it
Emmy's, Oscars, blah ... People's Choice is the only one that counts. Until they find a way to 'fix' that one too.
Ok, but I bet that when something you like wins one of these "fixed" awards, you don't consider it fixed; you consider it well deserved.
Shame, shame, shame: it is "The Big Bang Theory's" Jim Parsons, everybody should watch this very funny show!
Jimmy Fallon is not funny.
I agree, no offense to the guy, but...he is so over rated.
He was a lot funnier than Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin were at the Oscars...
What happen to LOST?!?! An amazing season gone unnoticed!!! Huge disappointment Emmys!
Season 6 was crap and the end was terrible. You are a typical Lost cheerleader who can't see what it really was – and it certainly didn't deserve one single Emmy.
Yes, what happened to Lost? Major disappointment that this fine show did not win.
I hope those voting actually saw all of these performances. Hard to say who should have won since I don't have time to watch all of those shows.
I boycotted this year. Reason? John Noble of Fringe should have been nominated. A complete travesty!
I completely agree with you. A great actor on a great show.
I am sure you were greatly missed
Agreed. Walter Bishop is my favorite character on TV. A superbly-acted tragic figure.
Burn notice and breaking bad deserve all the emmys
This is why I never watch these award shows. Those that should win never do.
those that should win are the nominees that get the most votes. i think the problem here is you overestimating the value and validity of your own opinion.
You have an error in the copy prior to the list. Jim Parsons is from Big Bang, not Breaking Bad.
The emmys are a joke its a wanna be oscars.
You do realize they're for completely different things, right? One is for films, the other is for television.
I agree, thats why I don't watch it at all! Its fixed!
Where's your editor? Jim Parsons isn't in Breaking Bad. He's in the Big Bang Theory.
I know, the author is an idiot. How hard can it be to right a piece on ENTERTAINMENT?
@Natalie – evidently as difficult as it is to realize the difference between "write" and "right".
With the exception of Al Pacino, I never even heard of any of these guys, so what's the point in watching to begin with.
LRoy, you are the reason we have bad television. You won't watch anything that doesn't have a Big Name in it, the Big names demand Big Salaries, and Big Salaries mean formulaic stories because producers aren't willing to take a gamble on more creative stories with that much money invested in salary. Get your head out of celebrity a** and try watching a good story every now and then. Stop contributing to bloated celebrity salaries.
I haven't even heard most of these shows!!
2 n a half men was robbed again. The emmys r a joke
It's a bad show with tired jokes and gags that any semi-coherent hack could upchuck in 12 minutes a week.
You should call yourself Snarkazein. How many comedies have you written lately? You sound like you think you know what you're talking about but, I have to say that Two and Half Men is one of the best comedies on TV right now. It isn't about the jokes, it's about the delivery and timing. This cast is perfect. Jake (Angus T Jones) is quite the comedian and has a great career ahead of him. He is genuinely funny and his timing is awesome.
What have you done lately? How much money do you make for each "episode" you are in?
So in other words, if you don't have cable, your watching ? Bad TV on all the network channels?
you're right. network tv is crap. if you're not watching cable, you are watching trash
Yes, because it seems like cable is the only way you can see anything but reality shows now. And even some of the cable channels are filled with that junk.
I don't think so, there are a lot of great shows out there. I just don't watch most of the shows nominated. BBTheory and Glee are network shows. I don't think these award shows are about the viewers.
network TV is bad for one reason... sponsors. sponsors don't want to be involved with anything controversial, intellectual or artistic. they insist on the networks pandering to a very broad base of people to get the most viewers to get the most eyes on their ads. on cable TV the subscribers are the sponsors, so cable can give people what they want, as opposed what some massive corporation wants. this is why the network TV model will be completely dead in 5 years.
i always thought mad men was boring
Best show on the tube...
Agreed. Tried watching it once and got through about 2 episodes. Too many better shows out there.
I find modern family over acted
Temple Grandin was Amazing.
maybe you are too young to be able to appreciate how true to life this period piece is. I find it totally fascinating and realisitc.
Found this award show extremely boring. The shows up for awards were pathetic. Sad when a majority of these shows are all on pay-for-movie channels and made for dvd releases :-/ Seriously you people need to stop getting votes from the nursing homes.
Modern Family??? blech!
