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?
The Emmys can be rather confusing for all their rules and regulations, in that certain shows can't compete, or that animation can't submit itself for writing categories, instead remaining its own category. Now, the latest Emmy ballot has the writers of 'Family Guy, 'The Simpsons' and others hopping mad, but what does 'Community' have to do with it?
In a move no doubt to be parodied by the exact manner in which the character first appeared, and rose to a lead position within the span of a few episodes, it seems 'Mad Men' star Jessica Paré is once again on a swift ride to the top. After becoming a series regular this season, Paré is already submitting herself for the Lead Actress Emmy, but what does it mean for the show's other women?
Whoa, Fat Betty. Blam a-lam. 'Mad Men' might rake in the Emmys year after year, but something at Sterling-Cooper-Draper-Pryce just isn't right when none of the series' immense acting talent have taken home the prestigious award for acting, despite multiple nominations. And even if you're not fond of January Jones or Betty
Draper Francis, the actress' chances this year might have doubled with her size.
