Homeland, Game Change and Modern Family Grab all the Emmy Love

Sorry for the delay in posting the winners of last night’s Emmy Awards, but I just got back into town from the Cinema Diverse Palm Springs International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival where my short Dirty Talk premiered! So, I just watched the show, but I have all the winners for you below. It was business as usual on the Comedy side with Modern Family three-peating as Comedy Series while its stars Eric Stonestreet and Julie Bowen both captured their second wins in the Supporting Categories. Lead Comedy honors went to Julia Louis Dreyfuss and in a bit of an upset Jon Cryer. On the drama front, Mad Men lost Drama Series after 4 years of dominating that category with Homeland pulling off a surprise win. Homeland also won Acting honors for Clare Danes and Damian Lewis (another shocker) while Mad Men went home empty-handed and broke the record for most losses in a year by a show as it went 0 for 17. Supporting Drama kudos went to Aaron Paul and Maggie Smith. In the TV Movie/Miniseries race, Julianne Moore and Game Change prevailed while Hatfields and McCoys landed two acting honors for Kevin Costner and Tom Berenger. Jessica Lange grabbed the only big win for American Horror Story of the night in the Supporting Actress race in that field. On the reality front, The Amazing Race won again (9 times out of 10 now!) while Tom Bergeron beat out the massively more deserving Cat Deeley for Host honors. For more on the show, analysis, records and interesting tidbits, head to Deadline Hollywood here and check out the winners list below.
