2012 Emmy Awards
Seriously, how adorable is Aaron Paul? "Thank you for not killing me off," said the 'Breaking Bad' star, as he accepted his second consecutive Emmy for the role of Jesse Pinkman. Paul referred to series creator Vince Gilligan's initial plan for the Jesse Pinkman character, which would have seen him dead inside the first several episodes
Well, we can't say we saw that coming! Sorry Amy Poehler,
Hanna Horvath Lena Dunham, Melissa McCarthy, Edie Falco, Zooey Deschanel and Tina Fey! Julia Louis-Dreyfus has officially taken the 2012 Emmy for Outstanding Leading Actress in a Comedy Series, winning for her role as Vice President Selina Meyer of HBO's 'Veep.'
Quick, someone get him a half-Emmy! 'Two and a Half Men' star Jon Cryer has officially won his second Emmy for his part as Alan Harper. Indeed, it seems that this year's lack of Charlie Sheen hasn't slowed him down a bit, as the show heads into its tenth, and final year
Oh 'Louie,' you magnificent bastard. While it remains to be seen if Louis C.K. will take home an Emmy for his acting acerbically dark FX series, the stand-up comedian has officially won the Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series Emmy
Stop the presses, 'Modern Family' has won an Emmy! The sure to dominate series caps off the first award of the night, snagging Outstanding Supporting Actor on the comedy side of things with Eric Stonestreet. Stonestreet won for his beloved portrayal of Cameron Tucker on ABC's monster-comedy hit 'Modern Family.'
'Fringe' fans were deeply saddened (thought not altogether unsurprised) to learn with yesterday's 2012 Emmy nominations that the cult sci-fi series had been passed over entirely for any award recognition, in spite of years of groundbreaking work and the universally acclaimed performance or series star John Noble. Longtime supporter and sometime guest-star Leonard Nimoy too has felt the outrage, and has taken to Twitter to vent his frustration.
Well, there but for the grace of GOB go they. The 2012 Emmy nominations are out, and with them the usual squabbling over under-appreciated gems and the series that the academy seems to vomit awards upon without any inking of whether or not they deserve it. Of course, some of the nominations are well deserved, and others pleasantly surprising, so who's causing the biggest stir among TV viewers this year?
